Forget the Christmas Jumper….

...the Christmas Frock is where it's at.

Fabric from Frumble.

I have been trapped in the christmas cookie kitchen practising star trees and snowflakes.

 I bought them chocolate santas and this is what they did, a little bit harsh I feel.

End of Trading

We had a fantastic day at Rode Hall Farmers Market on Saturday Morning, our best days trading and it was only until one o'clock!

Obviously we were getting a little too confident and had a dire day at the Lichfield Christmas Market on Sunday.  I did manage to do a fair bit of shopping though from a few local makers and dealers, a lovely setting and a great event, will definitely be visiting next year.  The last bit of stock has hit ebay and we are done for the year, now for a bit of making for my people.

What LOL was made for, in my local "wool" shop.

Yesterday was my young embroiderers and we did some fast fun makes.
There were more than these but the others had flown off.

These were made by brother and sister twins, I took in some fabric from my young Cadet's newly adjusted monkey sleeve coat especially for the boys who wanted tough peg dolls.
Love them!

Birthday's and Christmas

Thanks to everyone for my presents and warm wishes on the big 41.  I managed to make myself a dress out of the above fabric as my birthday treat to myself.

We dined well with Mizz Thorneycroft at the Cheshire Cat,

then on to a ladies evening for St. Luke's Hospice.
