Was at Ludlow Medieval Fayre at weekend and got lots of greenery, then raided garden, made lots of bows and so well on way to decorating with greenery.

Garland over mirror
Dining garland and lights
Sideboard centrepiece
Hessian bows
Front door wreath
Stair garland
Picture decoration complete with pheasant feathers

Still got to make some centrepieces for the rooms and some bits and pieces then I can start on the hanging decorations. Getting tree on Thursday!! Oh, it's the most wonderful time of the year!!

Been trying a few different things today. Had a bit of fun doing a card!

Then tried a bit of a change for the stockings - apologies for all the photos.

Tried making a little decoration.

And lastly knitted this panel ages ago so at last made it into a cushion cover.

So tomorrow have to see if I think anything good enough to sell and then list it on Etsy!! Gulp!

YEAY! The kiln worked!

First out, made some glittery stars.

Found some mini scrabble letters so made some word decorations that I will cover with clear glaze to hang from the tree.

Then I decided to make some hanging balls using buttons and pins. Love them!

Decided to crack out the slow cooker for friends coming to lunch tomorrow.

And finally, christmas puddin' is a steamin' !! Only another 4 hours to go!!

Someone said to me yesterday that they preferred not to think about Christmas until at least the 15th Dec - bah humbug! - and I agree in terms of the horrendous commercialism, but I like to immerse myself in all the good things, thinking of doing things for others, whether it be what the best present is, or baking their favourite christmas treat, or making a card, spending time together or just thinking about them. We should do that throughout the year.
