Making A List Checking It Twice........

Well, I've checked and I discovered that despite the shops being closed for a whole day, I have enough food in and will not starve. I seem to be in the minority with this revelation, as (almost)everyone else is manically buying vast quantities of stuff they can not possibly need.
Oh well. it's nearly over for another year - no more inane Christmas music everywhere you go and no more interrogations about what I'm going to eat on Tuesday (does it matter?).
I hope you are doing exactly what you want to do, this Christmas and if possible enjoy yourself as well.

I made a quick dolls cot quilt for the daughter of a colleague - used up some scraps. I know my colleague had bought her a toy buggy (stroller!) for the the little girls' dolls, so I'm hoping this will prove useful. It didn't take long and cost almost nothing.
The other day, I saw this great idea - a patchwork bottle. Sounds rubbish, but actually was very effective. Will definitely have to give this a go.

Lastly, I want to say a big thank you to Angela at Tracing Rainbows for her kindness and generosity. Thanks. x


  1. The quilt is gorgeous and any little girl would love to have it! Happy christmas.

  2. Thanks Anne. Kind of you to say so. merry Christmas to you, too. x

  3. I only popped into Asda today for some ice cube trays and it was manic. I think I'll survive with my fridge full of food whilst the shops are shut. Have a good one yourself xxxx
