Busy, busy, busy.

I had a great day yesterday, I got loads of things done. As well as baking 2 dozen scones and prepping some pastry for today, I took some items to the charity shop next door and dropped another bag of with a friend. Then I was able to spend some time up in my room. I prepared a whole bunch of stuff so that I could work on it while I sat down stairs with Tony in the evening.

I finally remembered to sort out buttons for the Aran sweater, I stitched them on later. I sorted out ribbons and buttons for one of the Secret Santa projects, and stitched them on later.

I made a second SS item and found pretty threads for embellishments which were added in front of the TV.

I made a third SS item and need to find one more special part for that.

A fourth SS item was also completed and the final few stitches finished by hand in front of the TV.

With a little time left before Tony was due home from work I set too with some scraps and made some Christmas ornaments. Yep!! You guessed it, the buttons, bells and ribbons were all added later while watching TV. Needless to say I didn't get much knitting done last night!

So whats up today?

I'll be making pies with the pastry I made yesterday, hopefully some of them will make it into the freezer! Then it's back up to my little nest, to make more Christmas gifts. :-)

And productive, productive, productive! I love your little trees. What a great way to use up those little Christmas scraps. The little jumper turned out super cute. It looks lovely and snuggly for a little one.

What a busy day. You got so much done. I save binding quilts usually to do in the evenings so I can be sociable at the same time. I love your little bells, they are really cute.
