I know it's early but .....

..... Christmas is coming ..... slowly but surely
blink and it will be upon us
(don't shoot me, it's true!)

I've been very organised this year
(for a change)
making advent calendars on and off all summer really
a little embroidery here and a little cutting there .....

This was on our summer holidays in the lake district!

Snip. Snip. Snip
 Stitch by stitch

and there we go ..... as if by magic (I wish)

I thought I'd give you the heads up here on my blog
 because this year, I'm afraid, I won't be making these advents calendars to order
so once they're gone they are gone.

You can find them in my Etsy shop
in the Christmas section

I've been making lots of festive goodies lately
there may even have been sightings of Mr Percy Pecker here recently
but more on that in a good while.

Before I go,
I was asked about my gorgeous & cute fairy in my last post
here he is again if you didn't catch him

Ahhhh how I love him, what a handsome little fellow he is.

I got him from this clever lady a few years back
actually I have a very nice collection of three
They are special indeed
If my house was burning down, they would be on the top of my 'grab it' list.
My treasure.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend
Back soon .....

BIG love

  4. Jooles they are LOVELY. The ovens in our school kitchen have been broken this week so each day the cook has been doing as much as she can in the one in our staffroom, filling our corridors with beautiful roasting smells - very christmassy indeed. Well done! Jane x

  5. Hi Jooles! So wonderful to see you back in blog land :) Your advents are really beautiful- I love them!
    I saw your last post and had so many things I wanted to say but this virus I've been fighting took a turn and I just haven't had the energy until now to get on and say hello- and of course, I've forgotten everything I wanted to say earlier. :)
    Looking forward to more posts from you.

  7. Hi Jooles, the advents are so gorgeous.Funnily enough earlier today Tony and I were out with our grandaughter and we popped into a shop where they were selling packs of 24 advent chocolates which would just fit into them.

  8. Hello Jooles
