The Christmas ban is lifted!

I've been such a good girl and managed to hold off from mentioning the c-word for so long now, but now that's it's November I can finally say it. Yes, Christmas is coming! Christmas, Christmas, Christmas! As you may have guessed, I am quite excited that it is now only 29 sleeps away!

Despite having kept quiet about all things chrimbo on here it has gradually been seeping into my life over the past few weeks. What with various blogs I read starting to talk about making things for Christmas or writing about how they refuse to talk about Christmas yet, the general invasion of Christmas features in the various magazines I read and, probably most influentially, the fact that I've been surrounded by and selling Christmas items at work since the beginning of September. Personally I think I've been quite restrained until now! And yes, you heard it right, they did indeed have me sticking a display of Christmas items (mostly sweeties!!!) on the first of September. September, I ask you! Even for me that's a bit early!

Anyway, I have gradually started making a few Christmassy items and as well as planning and purchasing gifts. Want to have a peak at what I've been making? Well, I've started 3 different new projects for Christmas to date - two decorative and one present. I don't want to overload you with too much Christmas in one go, so I'll disperse my new projects over the next few days.

If you've been reading my blog recently you'll already have seen the beginnings of this little guy I've been stitching on the train, who's nearly finished already. I imagine he will be finished in the next couple of days, if not on the train journey to Sussex later.

If you follow my instagram you will also see that I've begun getting into the Christmas mood lately as well - I really am a sucker for a gingerbread latte!

Happy Monday,

  1. The stitching project looks cute! Looking forward to seeing what else you've been up to ... :)

  2. Thankyou :) I shall be posting about my other projects over the next couple of days, whilst simultaneously battling to finish the fabric advent calendar I'm working on by Saturday. Looks like I'm going to be busy!


Thank you for your comments, they are greatly appreciated, always read and make my day!!
