Happy Christmas!

The big day is getting closer, and everyone is getting busier, myself included.  I haven't been in the shop for the last week, but Debby has been working away.  I haven't got much to tell you about the shop, and my mind has been on other things.  I have made several Christmas presents this year, and have spent the last week trying to get them all completed.  I have one more little gift to make, but I need Christmas fabric for that so will have to wait until tomorrow, when I am in the shop.  I can't even show you the presents I have made because they might be seen!

I decorated my house on Sunday.  I don't know about other people, but my husband likes loads of tinsel, and what I call tacky stuff, and I don't, so it always gets a little tense!  I did tell him I am quite happy for lots of natural green stuff in place of the tinsel, and have left it in his safe hands, needless to say it hasn't appeared yet!  I went to my friend Rosalinds yesterday and she had the most beautiful swags and wreaths all made with stuff out of her garden. Even if I was inspired to do the same, it would just end up looking a mess! Another friend always makes a wreath for my front door, I can't even manage that myself. Debby likes lots of sparkle, and I'm a little more understated, I think she thinks I am a right old misery. 

I like lots of red, and I had hoped that this photograph would show how cosy my fireplace looks, but it looks totally uninspiring, so I am not going to show you any more!  The reality is much better than the photograph, but I expect you are all fed up with me telling you that everytime.

I have given myself a break each afternoon, I discovered that Channel 5 were showing two seasonal films in the afternoon, so have wrapped presents and watched them at the same time, most of them have been very corny, and one or two truly dreadful, but I have still carried on watching them.

Well I have no more to tell you apart from we will close the shop at 12 noon on Christmas Eve and re-open on Wednesday 2nd January.  We hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thank you all for your continued support.

  1. Less is more Joan and I approve anyway. I don't go overboard either and you would be at home in my house. Light some christmas scented candles and imagine......

    Happy Christmas.
