I have been very lax in posting to my blog, but I have been busy knitting the shawl and a few Christmas gifts
This is my mystic water KAL I have one more clue before it's done, I am sure it will be so soft and warm, perfect for a cold evening.
I found a cool website for Christmas recipes and activities, found some yummy recipes and lots of things you can do with your children, this link will take you straight to the Northpole, how fun is that?
I received a most wonderful secret santa package from Holland yesterday, I now have my very own "Nisser" who has happily taken up residence in my gingerbread tree, I have to watch him carefully in case he eats to many sweets. According to my friend Imi these little fellows are a bit like Gnomes and can get into all types of mischief, but he sure brings a smile to my face. I also recieved a beautiful Gingerbread wallhanging, complete with sacks of flour and sugar with words and rusty tin embellishments so delightful, a piece of reproduction Dutch Chintz, several wool dolls, candy and Christmas tea, which just smells like Christmas, I do believe I have been spoiled.
If you look closely at the tree you will see a small tin horn, it's dated 1895 and was on my grandfather's first Christmas tree
