Still Making Merry

 Hello! Just popping in with a very quick post - don't want to feel too out of touch during this happy holiday time! I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. We have had  such a lovely time with the family. We've been enjoying it all so much, and will still be making merry for a few more days yet. We have lovely friends coming tomorrow and more lovely friends the day after that, so it's still rather celebratory here.
                   New plants and bulbs - some lovely presents bringing the promise of spring to midwinter... 
 All the snow has dripped away here but we still have Snow Bites in the new Pip Studio bowl (next to it is my new pink knitting which has kept me busy when ever there's been a spare moment)....
Soon we'll be eating less of these...
                                                                 And more of these....
   I wish you all a happy time in 'the bit inbetween' Christmas and New Year. Back in a few days. xx

Hope we fell into the lovely friends category. Thanks for the great evening. It was so nice to have a crafty chat. I knitted another pairs of Anna's wristwarmers on the way home, so have my own pair now, which I wore to go shopping in Kingston today.
