We have decided that we are going OS in April, regardless of the results, so after Christmas we start to plan our trip once again! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeee
On the creative front, not a lot has been happening though. I posted swap presents to Michèle in Alsace, France and have received mine. Just check these out!
The snowman is painted on and the decorations are embroidered hanging from the arms. The girl's plait is actually plaited and moves as you walk - just the most beautiful work.
I have read half of the book, used my bag and am planning to make Christmas cookies tomorrow morning while the ham is being glazed. I also have a snowflake cookie cutter which I used to make some of the Bredele cookies which are made in Alsace at the beginning of Advent. The FQ is a very fine linen, made in a factory in Alsace as well, so a wonderful French Christmas for me, without the cold of the weather :)
Here's a sneak preview of the FIS parcel which Santa delivered on the big island yesterday.
Still some photos of my weekend at Exeter as well as a few other bits and pieces I have finished this month - I'll post them tomorrow.
