Mid December is always so hectic and hurried. I keep trying to remind myself to stop and look up every once in a while, to appreciate the beautiful wintry-ness of the days.
Little oddments of Stylecraft Special arranged in a rainbow, Just Because.
Making Little Lacy Stars with my rainbow of oddments, whilst drinking coffee and scoffing a mini mince pie. Rather delicious, all of it.
The LLS's (Little Lacy Stars) worked out well, very quick and easy to make. I'll try and write up the pattern in a day or two if I get chance in amongst everything else.
I made the LLS's to hang in my studio, to add a little bit of festive hookery ready for our open Studio on Sunday.
Our studio looked fab and we had a steady stream of lovely visitors on Sunday afternoon despite the dreadful wet weather.
We will be opening again this coming Sunday 15th, 12-4pm if you fancy stopping by.
Little Man came home from school last week asking me to provide him with a Christmas Jumper to wear to school on Friday for charity. Quite a big ask really, seeing as there isn't already a handy festive jumper in residence. I scoured six charity shops with no luck, then went to a we-sell-everything discount shop and bought a cheap sweatshirt. A bit of felt and some insanely satisfying handstitching later, and my Little Man is very happy with his handmade offering. Phew. Another job ticked off the worryingly long list of must-do's.
Really enjoying working with these delicious candy-coloured cottons this week. Little candy coloured buttons too.
Ahhhhh these December days. So, so so busy. Such a full agenda each and every day this week. Must remember to breathe deeply and not get swept away in a tide of mild anxiety.
It'll be ok. Breeeeeathe.
