Well the last week has been a hectic one work wise, counting down to the end of the working year! But I have made it so three cheers!
Thought I would post a catch up of the weeks events.
I have finished some little gifts, one I can show, one will be a surprise so it will remain hidden for now.
We have our craft group break up this Saturday so I had to quickly finish that gift.
Here she is, a little babushka door hanger...
I sent off a hexie for my 'inch hexie swap' partner.
They are small and quite fiddly but fun to make. You can see how small they are compared to the needle I am using to tack them down.
I have been anxiously waiting to hear from my Christmas swap partner in Judit's swap, in Hungary. I sent my parcel on the 20th of November but it still hasn't arrived. I will be so disappointed if it goes missing. I am going to start preparing another parcel just in case I don't hear from her in the next week. Gotta hate goodies getting lost in the mail!
How cute is this book, Maisie is immortalised in print too! Ironically the little boy in the story is named Andrew the same name as no 2 son. Storybook Andrew learns about being caring and being gentle towards his pets but not before Maisie gets squeezed and tormented. Pamela Allen writes some gorgeous children's stories and we have a few of them from when the boys were little.
Quoting the lyrics of a John Denver song..
'Where would life be without home grown tomatoes,
There's only two things money can't buy
And that's true love and home grown tomatoes....'
Looks like we may have tomatoes for Christmas!!
Have a lovely weekend!
