These 4 pillowcases will make excellent pet beds, I use a synthetic wadding and they wash easily and spin very dry.
I also had this lovely hand made card, I am so jealous of card makers, perhaps I should seek a workshop out for next year.
When I slipped to the village shop to get some milk I saw that they had a collecting box out, a notice on it described the centre and asked for offerings of food. I did not contribute as I only took enough cash with me for the milk, they sell delicious pastries and cookies!
I will be going in later this week and taking some dog beds and making a donation of food. I will also be putting a stack of children's treats in the food bank collection, every child should have some goodies at Christmas.
I never buy an advent calendar for myself, on the odd occasion that I have been given one I have the first 2 then forget about it and suddenly I have 10 days worth piled up. The last one that I had ended up as truffles, it was Thornton's dark chocolate and the chocolates were huge.
This afternoon has been a marathon gift wrapping session, just the stockings took an age, 1 each for Junior, Kaitlin, Faith and Francesca and I like to wrap all the contents. The children's main presents are also wrapped so really once Francesca's are done there will only be a handful.
Remember this bag?
I made it rather large but new that I would find a use for it, possibly a knitting bag. No it now hides my dirty laundry, it has replaced a wobbly wooden affair with a dull cream cotton bag. As it is pretty it hangs on the newel post and has freed up space in the bathroom.
Now I am off for a gallon of tea and some dinner, quick and easy pizza tonight, and some fruit to be healthy.
My Pompom makers are here, so tomorrow's post will be colourful.
