The little snowman in my sidebar is telling me this. Sometimes I wonder why I put him there. Was it because I was looking forward to Christmas? Maybe back in February I was… but now… it is seeming rather too close for comfort!
Thankfully I have been working on Christmas. Joining Di’s challenge in August was a good start. I’ve also been busy making stockings for my sister’s market stall. I forgot to take a photo of them before I sent them, but Christie kindly took a few. She sold one… hee hee, but it is still early, after all, when she had the stall, there were 62 days till Christmas.. and now there are only 55…..
Here are a few of the finished stockings:
I have made only have 6 of these stockings so far, but have 24 other simple ones. The fun news is that I will actually be at the next market!!! So I will take photos for you all!!! My mum, Elizabeth and I will be leaving on Wednesday morning to go spend 10 days with Christie and her family. I’ll be posting photos of them all for sure 🙂 It is going to be great fun.
I can hear Alice saying – but Joy, you are not doing any Christmas stuff for yourself!!! True, but I am hoping that if I sell enough Christmassy things at the markets I can buy a big round trampoline for the kids for Christmas.. so you see, I am working on our Christmas!
There are only 3 1/2 days till we leave to go to Christie’s.. and in that time I need to make more stockings…. and cook some meals for the boys… and catch up on the washing… and clean the house… and… and…. and….. 55 days till Christmas is looking better…. I’d better get moving! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
