Last Wednesday I just couldn’t get warm so I spent an hour in the morning baking a chocolate cherry cake for tea,keeping all snug by the oven and to do an upper arm workout and to keep warm I creamed the butter and sugar by hand till it was light and fluffy,the cake was better for it as well,so much lighter.
The afternoon was spent cuddled under my throws on the sofa with trashy Christmas films on in the background whilst I made some more Merry Christmas bunting and because I didn’t want to move from my warm cosy space I sewed the whole thing by hand,attaching the ribbon to the felt flags with blanket stitch,which for some unknown reason I always have to look up how to do it as I always forget how to start it of ! It is such a simple but attractive stitch which always seems to work well on Christmas sewing projects and especially when working with felt.
I have so far this month been packing my handmade goodies and sending them of to mostly America,from New York to Indiana I am slowly getting to know all the States and every time an order comes through,out comes my atlas.I still find it amazing that my little makes made by me in my home here in good old blighty ends up being in someone else’s home as far away as Australia.I am as always very grateful.
Today I am helping the teen with his Christmas shopping,no doubt in the pouring rain as the weather forecast doesn’t look great and then it is our towns Christmas light switch on and then home for hot dogs and a movie maybe. What is everyone else up to ? I hope you all have a lovely weekend,I am hoping for a relaxing one !!
