Hello again lovely readers! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here (at last!)
I have finished Little Sparkle's blanket and Big Sparkle helped to finish hers. I will have to get a picture for next time, they were so pleased with them that they are going to be travel blankets and are already in the car! There are lots of little creatures and things to look at so it might stave off the boredom a bit on long journeys.
We visited a lovely Christmas craft fair at Hoburne, there were lots of lovely stalls including...
...these hand crocheted sweeties...
|Big Sparkle bought one for her sister, can you guess which one?|
...these stunning hand crafted stables and horses
(whose owner shared her first and second names with Big Sparkle) ...
...this sweet honey stand...
|We bought some New Forest Heather honey|
And when we started heading for home we saw a really gorgeous orange moon. These pictures don't do it justice at all but it was very pretty!
|On a cold and frosty morning.|
I have been desperately trying to get a Christmas blanket together using these festive fabrics and this tutorial although they wont be staying as semi circle fans. Hopefully I will have more to show you soon!
|Birds, bells and chandelier crystals.|
Hubby is not so keen but I am in love with my authentic 1950's chenille birds. We had some on our tree as kids but my mum's naughty siamese cats ate them all so I had to go find some of my own.
|Yes, that is tinsel. If it's good enough for Kirstie Allsop, it's good enough for me!|
|Little Sparkle 'helping'.|
|Oh Christmas tree!|
So that is it for another week, I will be working on that blanket and other bits that I will be able to show after Christmas because they are gifts. I hope you are enjoying the run up to Christmas, let me know what lovely festive crafts you have been up to!
