Here's to a healthy, happy, fabulous year! Can't believe Christmas is over with so quickly. I always wonder at the build up, for just, let's face it, a few hours!
I always like to put the Christmas decorations up quite early in December - with a glass of wine, Christmas music blaring and 'him-indoors' out with his buddies. I love Christmas and I always think of happy times gone by when my mum used to cook the dinner after eating a belly full of chocolate whilst opening the presents that 'Father Christmas' brought us. Then we'd pop over to my nan's for a lovely tea and home made Christmas cake, and then if time, we'd walk over to my grandparents and have more food! I was such a skinning child as well!!!
I particularly think of my nan at Christmas, as it was she who taught me to crochet as a child. I still crochet after all these years and often pay homage to my nan in my textiles in the form of crocheted trim or a lovely Winter warm cushion.
But crochet has not been the craft of choice recently, it's mostly been purses and pouches, so with more stock to make and decisions on which shows to do in the coming year, I will love and leave you until the next post
Happy creative New Year xxx
