French Christmas Crafting
We are all very grotty in this house (apart from hubby) - bad throats, heavy colds. Yesterday Miss T was on one sofa under blankets, Master T on the other sofa all snuggled up, didnt leave much room for me unfortunately.
Late afternoon the children went back up to their bedrooms so I managed to nab a place on the sofa and though I was feeling really sorry for myself I did manage to carry on with my crochet blanket.
I've finished all the squares now I just have to join them sll together - (I much prefer just making the squares)
As I havent got a "reveal" for you yet I thought I'd share another of my foreign crafting books.
This one is called "Noel Au Coin Du Feu" and is french. I do understand much more french than german so love buying french books.
The designs are a bit vintage in style and I love red and white colour schemes.
I know that this sack is designed for games but I think I would turn it into a Christmas Sack.
I love these little drawers - the structure is made up from cardboard and all the instructions are included - another project to add to the list.
This Noel sign is so simple but looks so beautiful - I was thinking to get it done quicker you could just do the letters and put them onto some coordinating fabric.
Well sorry its not a longer post but I dont want you to catch the dreaded lurgy . I'm hoping we will all feel much better tomorrow - I've got so much I want to get done.
There is some good news - I've won 2 giveaways this week and I really dont enter many at all !! Cant wait to share with you when they arrive. The dishwasher (touch wood) has started working again - the boiler that I told you was fixed on Saturdays post - started spurting water out just as I had finished telling you all that it was fixed, but the plumber came back out at 9am on Sunday and finally sorted it and the bedroom renovation project is still moving forward - my built in wardrobe is all constructed just ready for painting.
I'm still not sure it will be fully finished for Christmas but at least its getting there.
