Some gifts from my relatives: a silver plated bird/blue velvet pincushion, a fine bone china thimble and a tiny pewter Sewing Machine. These are the type of gifts that I really like!

Two 3-tier compartment boxes bought from Laura Ashley – half price in the Sale! The boxes have sewing images on them i.e. sewing machine, needle, thread, scissors, tape measure and buttons. I use these to store ribbons and trims for my sewing projects.

A Tape Measure bangle bought in the gift shop of the Fashion Museum in the town of Bath – the ultimate accessory for a dressmaker.

Do you look out for sewing related items when out shopping? Do your family/friends give you sewing related gifts?

      My sewing room is nice, though I wouldn’t say its very pretty compared to some sewing rooms that I have seen in blog land and though I mostly sew in that room, it also contains a single bed. My favourite sewing room is http://www.lazydaisyjones.com – that is really pretty!
