It's beginning to look a lot like...

Well, it's that time of year again.  Christmas Eve, husband's birthday...

and homes to find for this little batch of Robins.

Merry Christmas!

clickerty clack

In the age of Ipads, the noise of a typewriter isn't heard very often these days.  There we were, on the way to school, when at the side of the road appeared a collection of objects and a sign 'please take, free to a good home'.

There was an exercise bike (I left that well alone, obviously!) and this...

amazingly, it still works!  Could do with a new ribbon and the roller needs a clean, but the kids are fascinated by it.

Not to be left out though, Luke took a shine to, of all things, the empty box the typewriter had been propped up by, which he insisted on bringing home too...!

It's that time of year again,

...when everybody should have an Elf hat to wear while watching tv!

As is the case every christmas (according to my blog stats) it's my most visited free pattern, link here.

Embroidery hoop embroideries!

I have a couple of new items going onto Etsy today...

a Fox...

and a Kingfisher.  Both are applique pictures mounted in an embroidery hoop.

And, as it's nearly christmas, I also have      0 signed copies of 'Countryside Softies' on offer at the special price of $12.50 (that's about £8, cheaper than Amazon!).  This offer will run until Saturday 15th December, once they are gone, they are gone!
