Post Christmas

I hope everyone was able to enjoy their Christmas and welcome the new year in with joy and happiness. We're still enjoying the school holidays here as the new term doesn't start until Tuesday, but the trees and decorations were safely packed and put away last weekend.

Here's our little Christmas grandson, filling us full of happiness




He looked rather dapper on Christmas day itself although I think he found the whole business rather overwhelming.



I'm trying to get back into my crafting groove, there're so many things I'd like to do. I have a few kits that were gifts with magazines that need to be used. As I'm also trying to declutter (well, a bit), it seemed a good idea to start using things up. Here's a cute doggy keyring.






This one wasn't from a magazine, it's a little feltie bear I've made into a brooch.



We're ready to establish a routine again... helps me remember which day of the week it is... our little charge is back with us again for a full day on Tuesday and it's Andrew's birthday on Wednesday, everything back to normal again.

Hoping everyone is happy and healthy and 2018 is a wonderful year for everyone.


Take care

  4. I am trying to get a list of things that I really want to make during this year. I have dress patterns on the way and a couple of knitting patterns to print off. The hard part is keeping it realistic.

  13. Awww, how cute does Zack look. Give him a couple of years and the excitement at Christmas time will be fever pitch. I love the doggy keyring, I've got lots of kits from magazines but I never get round to making them. Wishing you all the very best for 2018.

  15. That is the cutest little Santa I ever did see....just adorable.

    Crafting is top of my list this year after a very poor showing of handmade things last year. I will be mostly making quilts and dressmaking for myself and the girls and teaching myself to sew jersey fabrics using my overlocker.

    Love that little doggy key ring.
    Have a fabulous new year.
    Hugs-x-

  16. The sweetest Santa, to be sure! Makes the holidays so special when you share it with a little one. Love the little felt crafts - so cute. I always need an adjustment after the holidays to get back into a routine, too. Still have to put away my holiday decorations - I've been so busy. Hopefully tomorrow! Hope your New Year is full of many blessings xo Karen
