Tonight me and the grand kids are decorating the tree at my place, while Mum and Dad are out shopping. This has become a tradition in our family.We started with a lolly hunt which was so much fun, then desert which was chocolate cream puffs with raspberries and these delicious Eccles or Banbury cakes.We then decorated the tree and its looks great.Josh has helped me load on these photos its great having a helper.
Much fun is being had by all!!!
I have been trying not very sucessfully to be patient while waiting for this awesome book to arrive from Scotland. It is called Colors Of Shetland by Kate Davies and I was not dissapointed. It is a beautiful book that combines my love of knitting and history and much more, beautiful patterns, most of them beyond my capabilities I think, but I am going to try one or two! Problem is the wool used is from Jamieson and Smiths in the Shetland Isles which makes it quite expensive with the postage. The colours are so lovely and this place has been going for years. One dayI would love to visit...... oh well we can all dream!!!!
This is a fantastic Christmas present to myself and would be for anyone interested in knitting, patterns and history of the Shetlands.
