Believe it or not, in the midst of going to the farmer's market, doing laundry, putting up the Christmas Tree (& decorating it), starting dinner (roast pork, mmm) and all those other things, I did actually manage to craft today. For Christmas, I had intended to make a box of inchies for my mother, but I decided that she would have more fun if she could help choose the stuff, so the two of us went up and made inchies. We made our lives a little easier by doing them onto paper (we used 6 different kinds of rusted paper) rather than fabric bases. The photo on the right shows the final arrangement, but as the colour is a bit off, I've put the left hand photo in as well, which shows the colours better - we were still playing with arrangements at that point. I think they are pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
And got some nice stuff in the post today - on the left is a Christmas card from Julie (again, bad colour, but then again, the weather today has been dark and gloomy) and a package of bits (I love bits. You guys know that. And hey, we used one on the inchies, so they were well timed!)
And two postcards, both for the L is for... swap - on the left, Lace from Priscilla and on the right, Luciano (Pavarotti) from Judy. Tomorrow, school fair, so frankly, it's a good thing we'll have the advent calendar and the giveaway draw or it would be a dull day in blogville.
