After the busyness of the previous week, this one has seemed quite calm. I put up our tree
I would love a real tree, but a) I feel guilty uprooting/hacking down a tree and b) I got fed up of choosing and planting one all by myself as no-one else could be bothered, so we have had this magnificent one complete with artificial snow for some years. It made me sneeze this year, how do you dust a tree?
He may looked battered but he has seen forty one years and survived three boys, two cats and two dogs!!
And there is my lovely angel from Rainbow Jane, the decoration from Claire 93 and one of the hearts I made.
This beautiful glass icicle which reflects the light so prettily was given to us in Dorset by our nephew and Godson, another Mr T and his wife Mrs A, to mark that they are expecting a baby in May. It was made by Bristol Homemade Glass
I don’t like to tempt fate but we have finally exchanged contracts on the sale of my Dad’s house. I have started the final clear out of the property. I came across my Stepmother’s button tin and the package to the left contains needles. No way were they going to charity/the tip! A nice momento, although my Step Mum did not do sewing!! She had people who did that for her!
Busy crocheting a replacement picnic blanket for Mr J, who gave the previous one to his puppy for bedding. I am using up loads of oddments and it is fun to create something colourful, useful and economical!
Lastly but not least, I won some lovely yarn a while since from the yarny robin . Three balls of Sirdar Faroe Chunky have been transformed into an adult slouchy hat, a pair of fingerless adult mittens and a child size hat. The pattern was Sirdar 9906. The remaining yarn made a pompom just the right size to go on the child’s hat, which I had adapted from the child’s slouchy hat. Thank you Yarny Robin
