Another happy and busy week. Christmas preparations well under way now. The spare room where I work is covered in stuff, completed projects and presents waiting to be wrapped, piles of materials for the if I have time things. You Know..
I am loving our new sofas. On 27 December 2015 we went sofa hunting and have been all year. Finally we agreed I would choose one and Mr E the other. Mr E’s delivered a week ago, mine on Brexit Eve!
Mine, all mine
Ours! I love the poinsettia I bought, it says Christmas is coming, now I don’t have children at home with the advent calender.
Haven’t we had some wonderful sunsets this week?
If I sit on MY sofa this is the view I see.
Tinsel knitting continues.
That would be alongside the two knitting and crochet projects I have going to say nothing of the fabric bits and bobs. Happy to say I will have something to share this month in scrap happy. Meantime this lady hedgehog , called Hetty Wainthropp, is hunting for her passport and trying to learn a foreign language.
The vintage pop up shop I visited yesterday in the lovely village of Coxwold. I was there to attend a wreath making workshop. It was good fun. Lovely tutor and participants and mince pies….mmm mince p i e s.
Details of the vintage pop up shops here.
My wreath and in close up
Quite proud of myself.
Can you tell I love getting ready for Christmas?
I know some of the bloggers I follow are having a tough time. I visited our church this week, lit a candle and said prayers for you all. Hard to put a brave face to the world at this time of year. I have had my fair share of doing that this decade and this year I am so grateful that I don’t need to be brave. I am enjoying every moment.
Hoping you all have a good week and some happy times, they are so precious.
