Craftwise I held a Thursday evening class decorating Advent Calendars - a lot of fun with mulled wine, mince pies etc.
My All DayChristmas was successful. Lots made. Everyone bought along something towards lunch as my friend who usually does lunch had to do the Craft Fair at the Community Centre. I foolishly said I would make some cards etc and DH went and looked after my table. Turnout was poor and it really was all too much.
I decided that I would have to delay an afternoon for charity until the new year.
I am going to put a few photos of makes etc.
My desk this morning - making deer for more Christmas Cards whilst waiting for new bed to be delivered!
Will visit as many desks as I can.
I have been to Yorkshire to visit eldest son and family - a great weekend just chilling out! However I came back to the news that Auntie had fallen. She went out despite my brother offering to shop for her, fell while out. He got her back and settled. That was on Sunday - two weeks ago. On the Monday she fell out of bed, was not wearing her alarm, could not reach the pull cord so lay for 15 hours undetected. She didn't break anything but spent over a week in hospital. It was dire in A&E so many waiting to be seen or for a bed. Because she still has her faculties ( though can barely see) she told everyone she could manage and wanted to go home. She still refuses to wear the alarm, is no longer allowed to turn cooker on - she is a danger to herself and other residents. The Manager had no choice - they have had fire brigade out in the past because of her. She refuses to have proper care. I dread what will happen next.
At the moment I am crafting just for me and enjoying it!
Below is a Stuffed Envelope for a swap I joined in with.
