It's really a winter wonderland here. In all my years, I have never known us to have such cold temperatures and for the snow to stay so long. I love the brightness that the snow brings (I don't like dull wet days) and I don't mind the snow staying for Christmas day, but after that I think I will allow it to disappear!
This is going to be a looong holiday, as the children have been off from last week with school closure. I thought I was up to date with my baking for Christmas but with them being off, my tins are nearly empty again:(
I wanted to quickly show a few finishes just in time for Christmas:)
I have been beavering away any spare moments, to get this table runner finished for my living room table.
This is just to show the wools closer. I used 3 different textured reds and 3 different textured greens.
I found it hard to get a good pic of the sitting room table display, but it is very simple- 5 gingerbread fellas in amongst some greenery.
And just some random shots of Christmas decor!
The children are very excited today-in keeping with tradition, the next door grandparents have a party for us all. We have a great time playing games, opening presents and lots of eats-just what memories are made off. Esther has made an after-eight cheese cake and I have made 2 batches of fudge-peanut butter fudge and dark choc fudge, so we intend to indulge:))
Trust everyone has a great Christmas as we celebrate the coming of our Lord and Saviour as a babe into this world. May we all experience the peace that He wants to bring to our lives.
Blessings, Shazy x
