It's over for another year

I have been very slack with posting my SSCS gift not sure what has happened to the last few days.
I received this lovely parcel from Lyn in New Zealand.
Thank you Lyn I am sure I will put all these beautiful things to good use.
A BIG thank you to the elf for her fantastic organisational skills in putting this swap together.

Where we had our Christmas lunch a wonderful picnic under a shady tree.

Not enough time

Christmas madness has hit.
Are these not the cutest little things. I was luck enough to win these in a give away. Lisa and I have been chatting for years, she takes lovely photos and knits gorgeous thing some of which she sells. I have put a cotton reel in to show their size. I have the sneaking feeling that these 2 will disappear from my house and go live with Gemma as she loved them, or perhaps I commission Lisa to knit Gemma some as I think I would like them to live with me.
They are knitted in the softest wool.


My SSCS parcel has arrived from Lyn ........ cute little pudding ornaments.
Thank you Lyn I will wait patiently to open my other gift.
A BIG thank you to the elf supremo for organising the swap.


One of Lucas' friends asked me to make a stocking which I quickly whipped up yesterday.

Christmas stocking for Morgan

and finally some cuteness our friends dog had puppies 3 weeks ago they are the sweetest little things. This one had just had a big drink and could not lift its belly off the ground.
