Happy 1st day of December everyone!
I've been busy making these quilted decorations out of wired ribbon. I'm not sure why they are called quilted decorations as there is no sewing involved.
I have to say thankyou to Julie for my wonderful gifts which I opened this morning, what a treat!, The ferreros have already been devoured and I've wanted this book since I saw another blogger making the fawn on the front cover. The decoration, which I love, is now hanging proudly on my tree. You have spoilt me Julie and on the first day of advent too!! Thank you x
I'll be looking for some good quality felt to make some of these lovely toys so If anyone can recommend someone, do pass on their details to me. p.s Julie I hope you dont mind me using the ribbons from the presents for my decorations...I just couldnt resist!!
I hope all your Christmas preperations are going well. I bought myself the coveted Heston Blumenthals Christmas pudding this morning. I simply had to know what the big fuss was about as these are apparently flying off the shelves and selling for stupid money on ebay, and I love his puff pastry mince pies with pine scented icing sugar, give them a try people!
I am away this weekend as the Christmas party season has begun so it means I'v simply had to put up the tree early (thats my excuse ands I'm sticking to it!.) Plus the strike yesterday meant I had the kids to myself so it was perfect timing for the tree to go up.
xxx p.s Dosn't that John Lewis Christmas advert bring a tear to your eye?
