With wings!

I asked the girls to let me take a picture of them on Christmas day, and they promptly cuddled up together!

Then I asked them to turn round and show us the winged-bags that I made for them, and they did this!

Then they quickly flew off!

Happy Christmas Blog Readers!

These lovely candles left over from this years advent spiral made cast a lovely glow on the Christmas dinner table ...

so I popped the camera on the table for want of a handy tripod ... i do a lot of table top or sewing-machine top photography in winter!

wow, look at that face - can you believe that's a three-year-old with sprouts in front of her? Now its time to give thanks, and tuck in! We all hope you had a lovely Christmas day!

looking christmassy!

The tree down from the loft and ready to sparkle!

Ben and Grandma-moon-bun where they can see all the action!
I was pleased to find Ben's hat again in the bag with lasts years wrapping paper!

Our cute nativity set with books ... Daisy can now read most of these this year!

and a very special garland made by my girls in Sunday school from self-hardening clay

I had to give in and use the flash on my camera to share all this with you! Hope your house is looking nice and festive too xxxx

Winter Lanterns ... Found photos!

I took part in a project in Edinburgh as part of a centre for adults with learning difficulties, back in the early 90s, and as well as working along side the users, produced a lantern panel of my own ...

the images were projected onto cotton using photographs we took on each other, and then we used batik to create the colourful images ...

That's me on the right, just a wee slip of a girl back then!

Nativity time - feeling christmassy?

Well it was a lovely evening when my little girls stepped out for all to see in their mummy-made costumes, so of course I took the camera along as one does at such special times!

Mary did very well despite me not giving her lessons in stairs-and-long-dresses! My favourite grown-up costume was the chicken, what did you like best?

Really must get the tree out of the loft!

Round up ...

some woolly hamsters shuffled through the stormy weather into my shop ... they chose calmer day to sit on my garden (but they did blow over!)

It doesn't matter if its cold or wet, there will always be rainbows here, and matty has even given me a lovely mug of hot chocolate!

here I am giving an Edward a lovely cuddle, this shows you how big the full-sized version is too!
