I sometimes wonder if the preparations for Christmas aren't actually the very best part of it. This week, we have been...
:: Foraging for natural decorations. rosehips, old man's beard and holly. We also bought some mistletoe from the Christmas Fair.
:: Making mincemeat, in preparation for mince pies. I used the suet-free recipe from How To Be a Domestic Goddess.
:: Indulging in some festive crochet. These little flakes need to be blocked and starched, and then I will be able to show them to you properly. The pile keeps growing- they are very addicitve!
