Inbetween time.

We’re in limbo land, the inbetween time, Christmas has passed, the New Year and that feeling of a fresh start approaches, but it isn’t here yet. It’s a funny time, you lose track of the days, there’s still loads of sweet treats in the house, so if you have the same amount of willpower as…

Christmas Stockings and things.

It’s Christmas Eve and all the planning and buying and build up is coming to frution. It’s the creating that I love most about Christmas, the chance to justify sitting down and spending half an hour weaving foliage into a ring, just as important, in fact much more so than the 3 loads of dirty…

O Star of wonder, star of night…

My Autumnal wreath came to an end last week and it was time to replace it with something a little more Christmassy. I had this metal star, bought from Hobbycraft, in my box of tricks and a lovely lady had just dropped off a bag of beautiful Eucalyptus for me, she answered my plea on a local…
