I love Christmas, I always get so excited and now the clocks have changed its really winter so I can start planning with gusto! I love thinking about the entertaining that I want to do and organise the food menus, think about what and when to decorate. I even have a special notebook where I write my menu plans, shopping list and top tips. Its actually good to look back on as well to see what I cooked and for how many people! And this year I'm going to be wearing my new Christmas Apron!
So I've been loving making my Christmas Aprons, Tea Towels and Napkins ready for the Christmas Craft show season! My first one is a my nephew's school with several others in the following few weekends.
My Christmas Aprons and Tea Towels are ready
I've also made up gift sets, complete with gift tag to write your message on and mini peg to attach to your gift!
I've been getting ready for this craft show in the last few days. I know its a few weeks away but I want to make sure I have plenty of stock. So I've made more cards, tea towels & napkins. I should be getting some more fabric tomorrow so next weekend I'll be making more aprons.
I've also been planing some Christmas craft fairs. I'm hoping to do one at Radley College in aid of the Sobell Hospice Charity on saturday 23rd & sunday 24th November. Also Felsted School Christmas craft fair and another one in Witney on the 7th December.
So I'll be busy sewing as fast as I can and making Christmas cards too. My first 2 Christmas cards...
Wow, what amazing weather we are having at the moment! So this weekend in a bid not to miss out on the sunshine I set myself up in the garden in a nice shady spot and got to work designing for Christmas! Robins and holly, would you believe.
Tricky to get fully into the Christmas spirit in 30 degree heat.
And this is the end result!
Just sent off for a swatch to see how the colours will print. Fingers crossed!
