A bit on the side
We're certainly looking it around here. The place has been decked out in it's finery and those dark evenings don't seem half so bad when you have the glistening bulbs of twinkling tree lights to brighten the house.
I've gone with a slightly more sophisticated tree this year (for me), and mostly only used my golds,silvers, creams and whites on the main tree. I'm kind of pleased with how it turned out. The other tree is where the colour is at this time and my bright baubles show up beautifully against it's creamy branches. There's a sneaky peek of some of the Christmas glitz here but I'll show you more soon, once I get my tripod out to take a decent shot.
Now that I have finished LM's cardigan, which I wanted to get done so she would have it to wear while it's coldest, it's time to put all my other 'ordinary' crafty projects aside so I can concentrate on some Christmassy ones. Which means the blanket squares are still on hold and a new quilt I started a little while ago will have to wait too.
Twinkler Stars ready for presents and I've got a couple of other things that are getting close to the finish line too. I've got my eyes on a pair of cute crochet slippers and I hoping to find a moment to join in with Amy and Kristyne's fun Holiday Tag-a-long this year too.
There's plenty of these extra 'bit on the side' projects I could choose to do but there's only so much time.
We'll have to see how I get on...
