I’m feeling very relaxed tonight, about half an hour ago I finally finished my last commission piece, I still have some gifts to make but it lifts the pressure a lot to know that I haven’t let anyone down and they will get their promised products with plenty of time to wrap and post.
I’m looking forward to some time to tidy around the house and prepare for Christmas at a slower pace,
we bought our tree last weekend (please excuse the missing skirting board and wire but this is still very much a ‘house-in-progress’), I confess to a very hasty decorating hour as I simply didn’t have the time I normally would to relax and enjoy it, ideally with a nice glass of something Christmassy whilst I ‘work’. I did make the effort to be quite nicely colour coordinated but F had his own plans and over the week has added every decoration in the box to the tree and the few that are too heavy he has hung on all the door/draw knobs!
Sitting on the top of the tree is the Fairy I made last year, a fabric version of my Gran’s vintage one as her’s is getting too fragile to use, you can see where the recent Fairy/Ballerina Mice began in her pink silk dress.
And there are plenty of multi-coloured birds that again were made last year (more of which are available in The Shop, sadly I didn’t get around to make more fairies).
Genius idea, not mine I’ll add I bought these in the Sale some years ago from Pedlars.
We have quite a busy weekend planned with F’s School Fair and all our cards to write, not to mention Teachers gifts to make. I am also planning a giveaway in the next post, slightly overdue but better late than never. For tonight, it’s Thai takeaway and maybe a bit more decorating, this time at a nice leisurely pace 🙂
