Better Late Than Never!

Hello all.

I wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas, but as we're now well past Christmas Day, I'll say instead that I hope you all had a wonderful day full of joy and happiness.

We had a lovely day at home with my family, however I spent the week before hand running around like a mad thing trying to make sure everything was as it should be.  I managed a few hours sit down in the hairdressers on Monday, but other than that yesterday was the first day I managed to do absolutely nothing!  It was lovely ;-)

I also wanted to share with you my crochet Christmas wreath, which I managed to get finished in plenty of time to hang it from the top of the French door in the dining room. 


I basically followed what Lucy did with hers, but didn't have time to make as many embellishments for mine.  No matter though, I'm very happy with it the way it is.  I used a mix of DK weight yarns - picked purely for the colours - they were all merino blends though of a similar make-up.   The tiny baubles were hard to find, I finally tracked a box down in Ikea.   


I'm going to get my act in gear today and do some sewing I think - I fancy a new top for New Year's Eve and happen to have a metre of navy sequinned fabric in my stash that might be perfect.
