Catch Up

Ooh I've been neglecting my little blog - I guess it's just that time of the year when it's all BuSy BuSy BuSy!
I hope you are all well and a BiG welcome to new followers, it's lovely to have you here.
I've been busily sorting out bits and bobs for Christmas and am slowly putting up decorations in ready for our tree, which will be decorated on Tuesday.

Little twigs hung with treasures are in the kitchen
I completed my festive bunting (although I changed my mind on making it white and went for BrIgHtLy coloured instead) The pattern is from the lovely LuluLoves

Snowflakes are in the window

My sweet mini pointsettia is florishing
And Christmas gifts are being created.
And this afternoon I think I shall write my cards and have a go at making some pomanders
Are you all getting into the Christmas spirit?
