Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a lovely new year...weither you stayed in or went out. I felt very bad for Arthur today...he had to go to work for eleven until 4 then 5 until close at the cinema...normally that would be ok for him but we got in quite late last night. Luckily i stopped drinking early on because im an idiot when im drunk and i seem to have developed the ability to have absoluty shocking hangovers now!!! So i feel ok right now...i hope arthur does too!!!

Im sat on the sofa hugging the little electric heater and the duvet. i love our little flat but its too cold in the winter...and i dont want to put too many storage heaters on because they cost soooo much. Any tips on keeping warm in a draughty massionette flat....which im pretty sure has no insulation of any kind??

Anyways...during my adventures on the sofa this morning i could feel myself saying "its ok...the stuff you wanted to get done dont really need to get done dont have to put away fabric and dust and other stuff" so i thought id try and get myself inspired as a result im listing to a pod cast on Craftsanity (the one with Alicia Paulson on it.) And it has worked....not only did i dust and tidy but i also did this.....

its a little phone pouch. i made it from a piece of felt which i machien felted myself (first time i have done this intentionally....favorite jumpers on a hot wash dont count!) from a scarf which was 50p!!!! ive been holding onto it for a long time now because i like the pattern and its really soft...but im glad i took the plunge and snipped into the fabric...i like the little pouch and have lots left...maybe a coin purse?? or a case for my needles??
Anyways... i wish everyone of you health, wealth and happiness for the coming year (my nanny says writes this in every card and im going to carry on the tradition!)
