Eating Up Christmas

Eating Up Christmas

It’s hard to believe that Christmas was  6 weeks ago now (though some would say it is only  46 weeks away!).  I’ve just eaten the last mince pie and thought I’d do a mini stock take of all the food that we still have to eat… Food we bought/made: 1/2 christmas cake tin of Celebrations chocolates … Continue reading

Jar of Nothing

This is just a quick post to tell you about another Christmas present we made.  This time it was for my Mother and Father in Law.  I suspect like us you have people who never seem to know what they want for Christmas or Birthday.  My in-laws are quite good at this (but then again … Continue reading

I have been busy preparing for the Village Christmas Fair this week.  Lots of things to finish off and present well.  Fortunately I have been able to take an extra day off work as I worked a Saturday at the beginning of the month.

Snowmen

Over the last few weeks I’ve been crocheting some very cute snowmen.  I fell for them on Pinterest and the pattern can be found here.  I have now made 8. Even though I follow the same process everytime especially with the eyes, mouth, buttons and arms they each seem to have a character of their … Continue reading

Decorations

Today I finally got around to finishing off the decorations I started the other week.  I must have been very organised when putting away the Christmas decorations last year.  I knew we had some cans of gold spray so I sent my husband to the loft to search through the Christmas box.  He found a … Continue reading
