Howdy doodie pepes. Phew, what a day.
I have to be honest with you. I did a booboo lol. I was awake way too late last night. I meant to go to bed early but it just didn't happen. So I turn to my hubby as we got into bed and I said: ' Wow..I can open my first day of Christmas ornie from Maggee in twenty minutes'. 'So you can', he replies...then apparently I fell straight asleep lol.
He let me have a wee lie in till 8 am and then off came the pretty tissue paper wraping! Oh my wow. What can I say?
My first ornament is just perfect. She has her place on my tree and is gorgeous. I love the rik rak: it looks so delicate.
Now, I would like to show you what I sent Maggee BUT I forgot where I put my list so I can't remember. I am hoping Maggee will remind me (hint hint M).
Without ado: here is my 1st day of Christmas ornie from Maggee.
I gave in today and made some gingerbread for the boys. I had the templates for a cottage and have the walls and roofs ready to make three gingerbread houses. I spent all morning cooking them and the boys can decorate them tomorrow. Mmmmm. I have never made gingerbread before but it smells wonderful. So wonderful in fact that I had to keep answering the door because of a tapping and a knocking.
Each time I looked there was no one there so the last time I stood by the door ready for the tapping so I could catch the culprit!
Apparently Napoleon the goose likes the smell of gingerbread! Cheeky so and so was knocking on the door. I think I live in a madhouse lol.
After spending all morning teaching decimals to my son whilst cooking up a storm, I insisted on some mummy craft time.
I go to a quilting group in County Roscommon and we all have to make a block on a Christmas theme. All the blocks made are then put together and we raffle them: the winner gets all the blocks.
This is the first time I have felt confident enough to make something good enough to give to someone else...I found this lovely tree on the internet and thought it would be perfect.!
Then whilst the machine was out I finished my little cushion. I found the perfect fabric for it. Sorry but it is dark now and eco-bulbs might save the world but they don't give off a lot of light so the colours are not really shown. Same for the quilting block; the colours do match, honestly!
Right: that's me done. Off to bed now. I have information about a few giveaways on my previous post or you can click the Giveaway shown by my labels xxxxxxx Have a good day!
