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 . . .
