Had some Christmas sewing to finish up
Started these ..... ages ago
And a Santa painting session with my girlies
The receipt of my Designer badge from the Brownies ( for my work in repairing and remaking the dress for Big Duck )
And then four extra adults and three children (under 4) spent 5 days with us, just before Christmas !!
It was lovely, noisy, exhausting and lovely.
When they all went off to the in- laws on Christmas Eve, a quick blitz on the house and a couple of hours just staring at the walls 💆before a quiet Christmas day for us.
Boxing Day saw a jaunt over to Naseby to view the Civil War Battlefield
A cold but beautiful and very interesting day that is right on our door step!
Then a sorting of fabrics for a gift for Sister 2
Then we were at New Year! More childcare whilst the young 'un's partied
and a visit to the coast to return said littlies
longest pleasure pier in the world
|It still makes me nervous!!!|
|the Pier in the distance|
We live about as far away from the sea as anywhere in the UK but water featured a lot during another long walk this season
|The river running very high|
|and some flooding|
And the sewing? Twin bed runners. All done and dusted
All using scraps
Both with pieced backs
A sort out of more scraps to be sent off to a friend
|tidies my box up a bit 😉|
And the runners all wrapped and in my suitcase ready for delivery ....... soon.
