I can't believe it's only four weeks until Christmas - November has passed in a flash, whooooooosh! I'm trying to be organised a little earlier than usual this year - I'd love to have that time just to make a few mincemeat pies and some cute little handmade gifts to add to the pressies - but will it happen!!
Here's a couple of pics of last week's tweedie creations (a long awaited toiletries wallet) . . .
I lined it with some waterproof fabric . . .
It just sort of worked out how I wanted to, which doesn't always happen LOL, but . . .
It's it in the shop here :)
Talking of mincemeat pies, here are some pie tins I inherited earlier this year while sorting out some family belongings . . .
I remember both of them being used from when I was very little - happy days!
It would be lovely to use them this year - however I did buy a jar of mincemeat last year and it sat in the fridge untouched well into January and beyond (ooops!) I'll try harder this year :)
How are your plans for Christmas going? Are you a last minute frantic shopper or a methodical, uber-organised type? I quite like a little bit of last-minute shopping flutter - but only when I know it's for little fun items - I get the major ones out of the way first!
I got my copy of Hundreds and Thousands last week - it was nice to get a little package from Oz!
It's a cute little publication about all things handmade and you can buy your copy here. Well done ladies - I hope you little magazine goes from strength to strength! I might be trying that recipe for orange cake - it looked yummy!
Well, I'm off now . . . no time to waste! Things to make and cakes to bake - would be nice to spend all the time doing that, wouldn't it, hehe - dream on :) :)
