Decorating the Tree

We decorated the tree and anywhere else we could last weekend, over a couple of days. Usually the Christmas elves come and do it while we're in bed so that Imogen can come downstairs in the morning to see a Christmas wonderland... magical.

This year (not the first time) we asked her if she'd like to go on the list for the elves to come or as she's a bit older would she like to decorate the tree herself.

Andy put the tree up and the lights, Imogen decorated the whole tree herself.

She thoroughly enjoyed herself and did a really good job.

Filling in the gaps, no branch left not sparkled!

When Imogen finished and had stood back to admire her handiwork, the grand placing of the fairy on top the tree moment arrived. Daddy lifted her onto the sofa and it was a shared job...

... taken very seriously.

I've finished most of my hand made Christmas gifts now (nothing like a bit of last minute panicking), but quickly whipped these for my sister to put in my niece's new dolls house for Christmas.

A little blanket and pillow

2 matching blankets with pillows for bunkbeds

Thought the blanket was missing something so popped a wee flower on it.

Sister would like some other bits and pieces, but have just received a request for a quick cardigan, so bits and pieces may have to be for the New Year.

8 more sleeps till Christmas!!!

Take care
