The festive season really started for us when we had a Winter Solstice celebration with friends whilst watching the sunset over Budleigh Salterton Beach on 21st December. The day had been very cloudy, but just as we got to the coast the clouds cleared and we had an amazing sunset! I think these photos will be incorporated in my work sometime soon!
I have small girls and I had spent much of the run up to Christmas looking forward to making some Barbie clothes my girls
While I had the Sewing Machine out its been new cushion cover time and a chance to recover the horrid kitchen chairs which were getting a bit 60s in the wrong way!
My children’s Christmas gifts were a world of craft activities and stickers which they have been racing through enthusiastically, one of the best of which was a kirigami mobile kit. Basically its lots of pretty printed paper with shapes printed onto it which you cut out and assemble into long strings with coloured thread and sticky tape. We have added a couple of large bits of driftwood to hang it and now we have a lovely family art work in the living room…..bets on how long till the cat or one of the kids wrecks it???
