I'M LATE, I'M LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE....
Well, I thought I'd finished making everything for the WI/RNLI stalls at the fair which is this Friday and then someone turns up with 48 more Ferrero Rocher to knit covers for!!! (This person doesn't knit so has no concept of the time it takes, I think) I put the call out for helpers and thankfully someone stepped in - bless them!
More little Santa hats (sorry to those folks who've already seen these on FB)
I fancied doing something different and had seen painted wood on Pinterest. My friend's husband obliged with a few slices, the old acrylic paints were dug out and the cobwebs blown off!
I have to say that I really enjoyed doing some painting again!
I put some Stickles highlights on, screwed a little brass cuphook into the top and used some of Sue Dyer's ribbons that she sent me.
Thanks for this Happy Mail Sue, it made my day getting this and it'll definitely be used!
It's been a busy week apart from crafting. I went to the Royal Welsh Winter Fair with my friend Helen, we had a Grand Day Out and enjoyed criticising the judging in the homecraft section, lol! There was lots to see and I admired some of the amazing patchwork and quilting, some folks have soooo much patience:
All different and all gorgeous!
This tripych was the worthy winner, I spent a long time looking at all the details, stitching, bead highlights etc etc.
My band is being filmed at the moment for an hour long programme (6pm Christmas Eve on S4C!) and the camera crews have been in action this week. They were there to record our rehearsal, it was very different for sure, we were far more well behaved for starters!
Cameras were everywhere! The focus is on the people who have been with the band for ages and who are first language Welsh speakers - the programme is about how groups in rural Wales have their Christmas traditions. Watch this space, lol! (I shall mostly be hiding behind my tuba....)
And finally, we did a bit of Christmas shopping yesterday and this was the window display of a secondhand bookshop:
I wonder how long it took them to create it? That's a lot of books! It really looked like a Christmas tree, my pic doesn't do it justice.
Hope you have a good week!
