December Birthdays - A Happy Birthday Gift

In the run-up to Christmas it's easy to overlook December birthdays,  here's a small gift I made for one of my regular Friday night students who was spent her December birthday in class with us.

A very English finger pincushion and needle book - 

I'm loving the red, white and blue.

Wishing a very happy birthday to all December birthday people out there, including my husband xxx :D
