Blogger seems to be absolutely obsessed today with turning my photos the wrong way up while uploading, but as this one doesn't really matter, I'm going to leave it as is. Today's advent calendar choice was the Christmas crackers. This is one of the patterns which wasn't in the original kit, but which I made up myself to reflect one of the more English aspects of Christmas. Look at this now - only 5 more to go (and given the shape of the calendar, one of those is Christmas day itself!).
