Christmas really has crept up on me this year, more so than ever before I think. I had a list of things still to make but wasn't happy with the microfibre diary covers I've been working on the last couple of days. Quick and easy isn't really my thing and I need to spend more time on them to achieve anything remotely pleasing so decided to spend today finishing something started over a year ago!
13 hours later .......... the Sunflower's wired silk petals and leaves can be arranged as one pleases.
The machines, fabric and threads are being put away early in the morning to concentrate on some baking. The kids like the things we always have so we always have the same things at Christmas ............ it's easier than "where's this?" "why haven't we got that?". Stilton and onion quiche, a bacon quiche, puff pastry sausage rolls, chocolate log and the beginnings of the Mascarpone trifle are on the agenda for tomorrow!
Wishing everybody a lovely Christmas and a happy and healthy 2012
