Having shown you the covers I made for this year's Christmas Book, it seemed only right to share a picture of the finished item! I make one of these most years, just capturing a flavour of the whole event ... it's lovely to look back on, especially while the grand-daughters are so little and changing rapidly. Obviously I don't take pictures of the cat being sick on too much turkey, or half my family suffering alcohol induced narcolepsy!
In recycling spirit most of the ribbons and dangly bits on the spine have come out of crackers or off packaging etc. The gold ribbon was around our Christmas crackers, and the sparkly star fell out of another. Don't ask me which manufacturer made the papers etc cos I can't remember.
It already seems like a lifetime ago dunnit, and the New Year off to a cold and snowy start. Thinking of knitting myself some thermal underwear as our big, old house is flippin freezing! The snow that fell Tuesday night is still here and well and truly frozen into lumps, and more is forecast this weekend. This is a picture of our driveway - very beautiful but almost impassible. Can't decide between singing "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" or doing the whole Bah Humbug thing. Will probably do both!
