New makes for shh........ (Christmas!)


It has all been happening here - Last weekend saw a major repair in the fish pond thanks to a hole made by a sharp stone, and for once, it was hubby's fault not my sons!

However, we found 50 small fish (this year's fry) we didn't even know we had!

I finished making some shoulder bags ready for Christmas presents - I'm trying to make a handmade present for all the ladies / girls this year - don't think I can think of enough ideas to include the men!

Also I had my first go at felting in the washing machine with some lovely eco yarn  - knited flowers - the dahlia can up a treat - going to try felt a rose over the weekend - will let you see progress when next

I'm resurrecting my violin tomorrow after (cough cough) 22 years for a play day at the Beccles Music Festival with the London Mozart Orchestra accompanied by my son (grade 1 distinction trombone) so I'm sure we will have fun :-)

  1. Sounds like fun :) 2/4 of us are musical here - MrVV plays a tuba and Little son plays a violin & euphonium. We're off to Henham Steam Rally this weekend as MrVV is playing there.

  2. I think it's a very good idea to try and get ready for Christmas early if you plan to make presents. Well done you!

  3. Would love a fish pond.
    Your on a roll with all those bags!


I would love to hear from you with your thoughts :-)
