Slowly getting it together


So here is a sample of the gifts I've finally starting making for Christmas....

Squirrel and acorn coaster
I am working from my lovely new book 'Super-Cute Felt' by Laura Howard of Lupin Handmade, who has a blog over at Bugs and Fishes.

Still lots to do, and I haven't quite worked out what to do for the boys in the family...

Jess played an angel in her nativity play, which was really lovely.


Thankfully I'd managed to persuade her not to go in this rather fetching outfit she was sporting earlier in the week:


Mainly by turning her worn-out shoes into sparkly angel disco shoes! They just about lasted for the two performances; here they are looking slightly less fantastic, but still rather fun!


And the lovely sun-filled but frosty days we've had lately have returned to the more usual grey rain :-(
Luckily we made the most of this glorious morning to have a quick frolic on the beach before school started.



Slightly belatedly joining Fiona at Raindrops and Daisies for Green Day xx

    1. I hate leaving things to the last minute!! It just always seems so daft to start making stuff for Christmas in August, which is when it normally occurs to me to start.... maybe next year I'll do it! Good luck with yours xx
