Advent

I am feeling very slack after I have read so many lovely advent blogs, so I thought I should start one too.Blogger is being rather tricky and uploading a lot of nonsense instead of my nice photos but I think I've sussed out what is happening .
I have been baking, sewing, sticking, and sewing ready for the Waterfront Christmas Fair on Tuesday, not to mention teaching all day for the last two weeks!

I made some gingerbread stars which were very delicious using these cute star cutters from MandS which come in an even nicer tin- how satisfying !





I made this lovely twinkle twinkle garland after looking at Lucy's in Attic 24 and the talented Royal sisters, I'm going to use it to decorate my table on Tuesday...



Lucy's stars look much bigger than mine in her photos I must look again more closely and see if she did more rows. I have also been making gorgeous itty bitty flowers , I have put some on hair slides, and I have made a couple of corsage flower brooches in this lovely purple.



I absolutely love making birdies from attic 24 , I read a blog today from a lady in Australia who was making chooks from the same pattern , I love that we are making the same things so far apart.




I have also been making some covered notebooks for my daughter to give to her friends from scraps of fabrics and some little applique cup cakes, they were so yummy I made some more for my stall.They will sell for 2 or 3 pounds each I think.



These are the very lovely heart shaped keyrings I have been making, I may or may not sell them!



I have bought these perfectly heavenly angels from Michelle S.at the Arts and Crafts Shop so she will unfortunately have two less for her stall!! I loovvve them to bits

  1. Ooh, ooh! I LOVE your birdies from attic 24! I have the pattern but haven't tried my hand at them yet. One needs an over-abundance of yarn colors and for the most part I have a very little bit to choose from. And where did you get the pattern for the itty bitty flowers that are so cute? How fun would those be on a scarf?
    I think you have gotten a lot done for someone who seems to have a full time job teaching!
    Thanks for stopping by...always fun to meet someone new, isn't it?

  2. Oh wow you are right! We are on oppsite sides of the planet and we are crocheting exactly the same things. I love the colours you have chosen for your stars and the birdie. I hope you are having a great week. X
