Better late than never.

Reading on FB & Twitter today about people taking down their Christmas decorations reminded me that I hadn't even blogged mine so here goes. First a few cushions that I made this year.

In the middle of December I went to a wreath making demo in the village all where we were taught how to make a wreath then provided with the bits to make our own. The evening was great fun & we also had mulled wine & mince pies all for the princely sum of £3. It's so easy to do that I've made 3 more since perhaps I'll do a tutorial for next Christmas.
We took L on Santa's steam train and visited his carriage grotto, which she enjoyed although I was sure that Santa had had one too many Christmas beverages.
Some of my decorations.



Last minute iced cake trying to attempt Kirstie's polar bears :)
We also had a brilliant evening at the Eden project with a lantern parade, music by a shanty band & a shadow puppet theatre not forgetting the very yummy cups of chicken chilli & ginger stew and the chestnut, parsnip & cranberry stew.






A few of my presents.
I'll be back very soon with my Christmas makes.
Happy New Year x

Happy new year :-)

Your decorations are amazing!
I have spent so much time making orders this yr that I've made nothing at all for home :-( One of my resolutions for this year is to set aside some time for home projects. I love making things to sell, but I think it is important to make for the home too!

The evening at Eden looks fab! I have visited the gardens there in the summer (a couple of years ago now) but it was not as much fun as the lantern parade looks!
