I love all those pretty hexies Helen ... very festive looking.
A little something extra for your fudge ... I sometimes add some chopped pistachios, they make it look even more Christmassy and taste good! You have reminded me I must get some candy canes!
Carpet is going down here as I type, nearing the end, fingers crossed!!!
Have a great week, I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to faffing again. :)

Yes, soon Christmas baking will start around here again too :)! Your pictures look so festive with baking and beautiful fabrics. Soon the renovation chaos will be behind you - and you will get to enjoy the fresh new face of it all. Enjoy your day! I feel like I can smell your lovely candle just by seeing your pretty picture.

Helen,
It looks as if you have a good head start on your Christmas preparations. I love all the red and white fabrics for your little hexies, and I am happy for the reminder to make some peppermint bark.
I am working on gifts for my three daughters and want to begin a new quilt top with my Kaye England fabric called Amorette, but need to stay focused on tasks at hand.
Thank you for sharing such festive photos.

Your hexies look very pretty! I've just plucked up the courage to start some too, mine are in shades of blues.
The peppermint bark sounds delish....so Christmassy :)

Ohh.. a look-about on your blog is very festive! I've been writing Christmas cards all day, so I'm in the holiday mood, too. Our tree is up and sparkling with white lights, now I just have to decorate it. My holly tablecloth is on and my wooden Christmas candle carousel is on the table, new candles put in. Enjoy this season! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
