Tiny toes

My little bundle of joy / tornado of trouble arrived on 6th October, a healthy little boy.

I've been wrapped up in enjoying him ever since and at the moment can't imagine having any crafty time soon so will be taking a little break whilst we all get to know each other.

Thanks to all my readers and I'll be back soon

Handmade Christmas Challenge

It feels like the schools have hardly started back after the summer break but the shops are already bursting with wrapping paper, cards and potential presents, and I've already eaten my first batch of mince pies (what can I say I really like them...) this can only mean one thing...

Christmas is nearly here

I can hardly believe it either but I have consulted my diary and its fact in 12 weeks time it will be Boxing Day. The wrapping paper will be in the re-cycling bin, we will be loosening our belts from eating too much and no doubt the BBC will have some old film playing or maybe a repeat of Only Fools and Horses thinking that this is a good use of our licence fee money...grrrrr

So with 12 weeks to go I've accepted the Handmade Christmas Challenge

I'm not promising to make all my presents this year... but I'll certainly be putting some thought into what bits I can make either as decorations for the house or as little treats.
Why don't you join me.....
