On the fifth day of Christmas . . .

12 Days of Christmas Swap 2008

My very own Mummy gave to me . . .

a Christmas Bon Bon


opened by The Princess



and inside a fabric covered box, and as Babes would say "with embellishments"


and inside the box, a green thing . . .








which turned out to be a fabulous felted cuff. Mine has a bow on the top, lots of sparkly beads and blanket stitching.


















All in all, very gorgeous, very funky, it has not left my wrist this morning!

Thanks Mummy!!!

**********************************************************************************
The house is finally decorated for Christmas, I bought my first three presents this morning and the Christmas crafting is coming along nicely!


I have experimented for the first time with dyeing with tea, these silk taffeta roses are embellishments on gifts I am making, that I can't show you right now as some recipients of those gifts read this blog. Very pleased with how they turned out. Next time I will use less tea bags for a lighter look.

Tomorrow I will give you a good laugh and show you the state of my dining room table . . .
