Not much time for crafting with our Christmas preparations in full swing !
The house is starting to look festive - I love it when all the Christmas lights are hung up !
My hand is still sore & achy after my fall so stitching has been slow & laborious - but I was determined to finish my 2 new festive friends !
The fur on this pattern was a new challenge !
Now here too is Herr Penguin - taken from the pattern I bought in Germany - resplendent in his Christmas hat !
What little time I have found for crafting has been focussed on making sure I keep up each day with my Christmas Journal - I really enjoy my annual month of journalling !
So there is a collection of JYC pages on my desk this week ..
Although there are email prompts each day, I seldom stick to them in order and just write about whatever captures my imagination that day.
So far it has seen an eclectic mix of subjects !
And I never bind the pages to the end when the journal is finished - you just never know how dimensional & bulging the book will turn out !
Hope all your Christmas plans are going smoothly !
Have a festive, fun & stress free Christmas !
Love Ali xx
