the goose is getting fat

Dear Annie,

It's that time of year again; the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder and in our house, the countdown has already begun. It's too soon to bring out the advent calendar, definitely too soon to start counting 'sleeps', but Christmas is definitely on our minds!

 When I'm not answering queries about Father Christmas ( "Where does he live, Mama? What's he doing RIGHT NOW? How do the reindeer fly? Will he bring me a train...?") there is always some knitting to be done. So many projects on the needles and all needing to be finished in just over a month's time.


There's also a special piece of sewing to be done. Something essential for baby R's first Christmas. I've searched my stash and gathered fabrics, ribbon and thread all ready to begin stitching later this week. A selection of treasures that I've hoarded away for just the right project; there is striped fabric from Freecycle, teddy bear fabric from a local table-top sale, fat quarters that came free with Cloth magazine and some treasured ribbon from the wonderful Le Bonheur des Dames, a craft shop which nestles under the Viaduc des Arts in Paris.


Can you guess what it's going to be?

Love from,

Laura
