A quick trip...

Today I was allowed a couple of hours out of the house alone for good behaviour.  So after lunch I headed over to Arundel for a spot of Christmas shopping.

I love Arundel, I have mentioned it in the past, we got married there.

It is pretty at Christmas, and it has one of my favourite real-life present stores, Sparks Yard...


I managed to get a few extras there for my nearest and dearest, and I unexpectedly caught up with one of my real-life friends whom real-life usually conspires against us and keeps us from meeting up, so that was a bonus.

I may also have spent a whole £4 on some more felt; well when the shop looked as pretty as this...


...how could I resist!

There has been a little bit making, and a bit more winning this weekend, but more on all that tomorrow, the clock's ticking and these pressies aren't going to make themselves x

  1. I went to Arundel once. Loved it! Looks like a fab escape. But only £4 on felt. You really must be done with hearts then!

  5. Well done on your win! And Arundel looks more inspiring than our local area for presents! Must go there some time.
    Just sneaked a look at your list of 'to do's' Vey ambitious, but good that you are crossing so many off! I am impressed.
    Happy sewing
