Lovely to have had a bit of time for all the small things...
Like baking mince pies.
And putting together a mini hamper as a gift for our lovely new neighbours.
To include; a baked Camembert kit...
And an old favourite from my childhood - Peppermint Creams dipped in dark chocolate.
All were gift wrapped and packed into a small box with some freshly laid eggs from our hens - It was very well received :)
I've been helping my daughter make a few gifts for her friends too, such as this cushion made from a cosy wool charity shop cardigan and a tweed skirt. (We shortened the skirt for her to wear and used the off cuts for the back of the cushion! - frugal recycling :))
And I used some other wool off-cuts to make a pair of lavender filled hearts as another gift for my daughter and her partner.
Then one more simple little project got whisked up; evergreen snippets from the garden were simply tied to some terracotta pots with jute string. Church candles were pushed inside and packed with moss ready for the dinning-table.
Hope you're having some festive fun!
