Hello...bright and sunny morning here in my patch and I am feeling brighter and sunnier too. Did you know it is nearly Christmas? I mean almost Christmas? Yikes! Where did 2010 go? Well I have been preparing. I made my Christmas cake last night, fed it and put it to bed. I will unwrap it and feed it again a few more times before it is decorated by my very excited 7 year old!
This was the yummy dried fruit mix soaking up brandy....mmmmm
And I have actually finished another gift........
Yay! The zig-zag stripe is finally finished. You know I almost ripped this as I just wasn't enjoying the colours...and even up until I did the edging last night I wasn't sure. But I love it! It is cosy and soft and full of colour.
Ooo it feels fantastic to finish something after what seems like an age! Still have more to finish though....my Gretel beret by Ysolda has had to be put on hold until I finish Christmas gifts. I have made some progress and am really enjoying the pattern....
And I have bought myself a little treat to attempt to make some socks!!!
Aren't the colours fab-u-lous?!!!! xxx
