Day 15 - Sunday. I spent the day in the cabin making Christmas cards and planning out the backgammon board flannel!!! In the evening I made these "labels" for table presents on Christmas day. I made a whole bundle for our secret santa at work. Mine is from that although I have to say, I didn't realise how small it was!!!!
Advent pressie is a homemade chutney. Apple, Sultana and Date. This will go well with my ham, cold meat and bubble and squeak!!
Oh and I put the tree up!
DAY 16 - Monday. Wool arrived for the backgammon flannel. The first pattern I drew out was 93 sts by 73sts. A weeny bit too big me thought, so I scaled it down. It's going to be trial and error I think so best get on with it! Pic to follow!
I also baked a banana loaf. The mould kinda spread a bit and Ron said if I baked a few more he could build a wall - thump!!!
It did taste lot better than it looked!
Advent pressie is two stamps. a hummingbird and a "To/From" stamp. Very useful!
DAY 17 - Today! Ron has gone back to work today. We have had a week off. I'm going back tomorrow. Mizzy weather. I have washed the net curtains in the lounge and dining room. They are now back up and the rooms are smelling quite nice!
Advent pressie is this - loving it.
Aren't they just the best. Thank you Tasha.......
Right now I really must get off the computer and do this flannel. Hopefully I will get it done today, that's always assuming I haven't binned it!
Sorry about the long post but thanks for stopping by anyway.
