I was very lucky this Christmas - some of my favourite presents were:

Karen Martini's second book - Cooking at home - from my parents. I think I am going to love this one as much as I loved the first one - I've been home for 4 nights and already cooked 2 meals from it!

A gift voucher from my in-laws...

for Patchwork on Central Park!

I used it to get some gorgeous Japenese fairytale fabric and Amy Butler's pattern for Gumdrop pillows.

I also got the book "The Art of Happiness" by the Delai Lama - from my brother-in-law and his wife, and a Sydney/Melbourne 'Taste' voucher from my sister and her boyfriend which can be used at a number of restaraunts, bars and cafes.

And somehow, I also got 5 blocks of chocolate! 3 different varieties of Lindt and 2 fruit and nut...

See - seriously spoilt!!

What a nice lot of gifts!! Always nice to know that you're going to use a cookbook! I have a few here that look beautiful but just aren't 'our style' of cooking... but then some... never get put away cause we're always using them! Can't wait to see what you make with your new fabric too!!

Being spoilt is good, especially when it involves food and fabric!

I know exactly how you felt when you got that cooking book. Always loved book present especially baking or cooking ones.
