There’s no denying it…. the shops have been full of Christmas supplies since the beginning of the month (I’m sorry, but I hate that!), the Santa Parade was in Wellington two weeks ago (because November 14th is nearly Christmas right?), aaaaaaaaaand I am seeing beautiful crochet christmassy inspired creations all over the blogisphere! (OK, handcrafted Christmassy things make me feel happy and festive…) It’s coming!
It’s too early in the morning for me to start typing my thoughts on Christmas and how it has changed during my life, but no doubt I’ll share my views during the posts of the next five weeks…. Oops… I just deleted the beginning of a mini-rant there, I just can’t HELP myself!
Due to my compulsive need to get things organised, compartmentalised and sorted out, I’ve nearly finished my Christmas shopping (making) except for KB…. (what to get her!!!) and last week I whipped up another African Flower Mandala pot holder for a family member which is not my colour scheme at all, but KB adores it! Typical!
OK then, my washing machine just beeped, the pumpkin is cooked and I have an assignment to start preparing for even though it’s only 8.13am…. Maybe I should flag all that and finish the baby sized Raglan jersey I’ve nearly, only one sleeve to go… I’ll show you all next time!
Sending you beautiful thoughts, may your day be happy and peaceful, and crafty of course too…
Lots of love from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
