The last blanket of 2012...


Ive had a lovely time with this one! Ive been busy with Christmas telly of an evening and a pile of Aran yarns... Actually I only watch telly so I can play with wool!


I am halfway through already and the blanket is only about 4 days old! Im going to finish the centre block and then work about 3 rows of ivory edging, followed by several alternate rows of single colour / ivory till its the right size. Its so pretty, I will be making another! Next time I am working the spot borders as alternate black and white, like a chess board. I can see it in my minds eye... a bit like snakes and ladders. I may even pop a ladder and a snake on it somewhere!


The gingerbread house turned out beautifully. Apart from making one of the batchs of gingerbread, Littlest made it all by herself!



The detail was tremendous, even including guttering and water butts...


Willow wreaths were made on Christmas Eve...


Piles of homemade bread was devoured...


Christmas morning saw some of the family hiding under duvets...


I was spoilt rotten and had a cake stand bought for me by Mr F... perfect tea party centre piece... it will match my cups!


Ooodles of tea to fuel 2013... and a new milk jug from Littlest, especially good for if I become senile, as it clearly sayes MILK on the side, and special golden syrup to add to my collection from Middlest, and homemade tealight holders using special woods by Eldest, and homemade recycled cutlery coat hooks from Mr F... See, very spoilt!


And a feast like no other...

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year ahead full of health, happiness and laughter. Dreams galore, and the energy and courage to carry them through.
