IT'S BEGINNING TO FEEL A BIT LIKE.........



....... CHRISTMAS!!!! Well, at least this little Santa is a start to the festive season. He's very simple to make. I found the pattern here . The pattern shows them personalised, but I prefer him as he is. Hopefully, I'll have time to complete a second one, so that they can be popped into our two little granddaughters' stockings. I buy or make a tree decoration every year for each of our three adult children too!


There are sparkling trees springing up all over our city. It seems this is the year for sparkle.......


... although this one is looking rather lovely!


We visited the beautiful little town of Holt yesterday, on our way home from the coast. Everywhere was looking splendidly sparkly!




I've spent the afternoon making seventy-five star biscuits, ready to be turned into seventy-five Santa biscuits by the children, to sell at our school Christmas Fair on Friday.


This is how they'll end up...... hopefully!


Pretty cool! :-) Busy! Busy! Busy!

Lovely, lovely sparkly photos. I love this time of year!
What a nice idea to make decorations for your children. I might do that myself.
Have a good week x

Hi Ros! I love your knitted Santa and those coocies will be super cute! How beautiful photos - I can sense the Christmas. Here I haven't seen any lights yet, nor have I been in town. I put some lights at home and they look great. Nero started today his Christmas Calendar at our blog! x Teje

The little knitted Santa is lovely! I admire your dedication in baking those biscuits. Are you decorating them or are the kids doing that? Have a good week! xx

It is so pretty where you live! Love all the lights. Are you icing the santas or the children? Either way I hope they go well!

Sarah said...

Oh I see the children are doing it-well done!

What a beautiful little town. Yes before you know it the big day shall be here.
Any snow yet? We could arrange to send some.
Have a great week Ros.
