Oh I'm sure this poor blog is feeling very neglected. It's not that I haven't been making things, it's just there seems to be no day light for taking pictures, no time to find the cable for unloading, no words in my head.
Most of the christmas making is done; chutneys and shortbread and crudge (like fudge but gone wrong, kind of hard and sugary...) fabric baskets to pack it all in, snowflake cards, needle cases and pencil cases. Christmas decorations consist of 6 tissue paper snowflakes threaded onto cotton and half heartedly tangled at the window. Some clementines on a plate. Perhaps next year when the curtains are up and the pictures are up and the kitchen is done (and we haven't both got colds) perhaps then we'll have a christmas tree. A real one, to plant in the garden afterwards and bring in year after year.
It's snowing and it's beautiful. Crunchy.
