Hand made Christmas Challenge......

It is really starting to feel like Christmas is on the way! I found a half done Christmas bunting that I started earlier in the year, and as always time has got away from me and now it is nearly Christmas time and my hand made decorations are not finished! Damn!

Sooooo... I am going to quickly finish these little flags and string them together for a cute deco across a doorway.

Also made the first batch of the season of shortbread last night, a bit early I know, but I love these bikkies and it doesn't take much arm twisting to get me baking them!

We did a bit of Chrissy shopping today, braving the crowds at DFO, didn't get much really. I think I'm going to fail on my Hand made Challenge, it will probably end up being a 70/30 split of shop stuff to handmade stuff, but I guess it's a start!

So feeling quite festive this weekend! Hope you had a good one!


  1. Love those cookies and their shapes. Those woolen flags are beautiful too. I wouldn't be too hard on yourself about the handmade challenge. It would be a mean feat if you managed to get everything handmade. My Christmas purchases are around 60/40 so I'm pretty happy particularly when I know I've tried really hard to support our blogging community. Trace

  2. Just found your little bit of the woolly world when I was doing some "bloghopping!" And a lovely place it is.
    Kindest Regards Linda

  3. Great flags, but now I am craving shortbreads. :)

  4. Nice Bunting, I like how it is knitted as I know that takes longer :-)

  5. LOVE the crochet Christmas trees - precious! But I really want to learn to knit. Do you have any recommendations on videos, etc., that can teach me to knit?
