Merry Christmas and welcome to the final New to Me link party of 2016.
As ever, it is the time of the month to reflect on anything that we have tried for the first time this month, whether ultimately successful or not. So, if you have attempted FMQ'ing on a handmade Christmas gift or tried a new recipe for your Christmas cake link up and give yourself a pat on the back for moving out of that comfort zone :)
My New to Me's are an eclectic bunch to end the year with.
I visited Hamburg for the first time to enjoy the delights of the Christmas Market where, as you can see, Santa made a flying visit complete with a reindeer-drawn sleigh!

My friend rang me one afternoon to tell me that she was in Lidl and they had just taken delivery of these overlockers if I was interested. My initial reaction was not at the minute. Then we had a couple of hours to spare before the rugby game we were going to was kicking off, there was a Lidl within two miles ( I might just have checked!) and it wouldn't do any harm to have a look, would it??
You can see where that line of thinking got me!
So far, all I have done is take it out of the box, contemplate how scary looking it is and put it back but, hopefully, in a quiet few hours over the holidays I might manage to give it a go. All tips gratefully received :)
So, that's my New to Me for December now it is your turn.to link
up and celebrate the trying of something new. Of course it would be
nice if our something New's were successful, but you are amongst friends
here. We know that it isn't always the case so, hey, we are here to
celebrate anyway the fact that we tried :)
As ever please help to spread the word by linking
back to this post in your post and/or adding the blog button
to your sidebar.
out the other links too and, maybe, leave an
encouraging comment along the way. The emphasis of
this link party is to celebrate the trying so a little
encouragement here and there would not go amiss!
link will remain open until 23.59GMT on December 31st,
so if you found some exciting new kit or notion under the tree today, get it out and give it a whirl and link up
and join the party :)
