Homemade decorations

I had wanted a real tree this year so I checked with the forestry commission website to see where they were selling them this year only to find I had missed out.  They only sell them on one day and it was last Sunday so I had to make do with what we had and although you can't really tell from the photo, it looks very pretty.  It's so dark again today and I took pics at 2.30pm with the lights on but they are still not great.

I like to see homemade things on my tree

Which do you prefer, the knitted or the crocheted snowman?

I ended up making seven of these angels one year for family and friends!

This star pattern was on Lucy's blog Attic24 and I like the different colours so i have hung it up in my kitchen as its too big for the tree.

Played about with bits of felt and buttons

More hearts of course!

Last year I made a rag wreath so that has gone up on the kitchen door

My crafting influence has worn off on my son as he has made us this lovely homemade card this year.  

Our room is looking quite festive and cosy now and we have lit the stove because there is still a nip in the air probably due to the dampness because the temperatures are quite mild.  Still we saved wood as we didn't light it yesterday.
Tomorrow is my OH's Birthday and we are going out for a stroll along the beach at Loch Fleet which is like a nature reserve and we will hopefully see the seals, followed by a hot chocolate and sausage roll in his favourite cafe.  Simple pleasures.  I plan to cook us a nice meal in the evening.
I would also like to say a big thank you to those of you who leave me nice comments on my blog and thank you to all my followers.
Bye for now as I need to get back to my knitting.

  1. Wow, fancy the light fading at 2:30pm! Here in Auckland it is still light at 9pm. I'm not putting up Christmas decorations this year as I have a friend and their two year old coming to stay and am anxious about the trail of destruction he may wreak. Besides which we are going away until 6 January so it hardly seems worth it.

  2. Hi Terri, its looks great, some much work goes into those wee knitted decs... Woo xx
