Yesterday we put up our christmas decorations and brought the tree in from our back yard. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t fit through the door…
Prim enjoyed the tree and the tree-decorating
Every year we go to Gran’s house for Christmas. Yesterday Billy and I made chocolates for her. There are about half of them on that photograph, we made some in a chocolate mould too.
A few days ago I made marzipan for the cake (we don’t have icing, just lots of marzipan), I’ve put the marzipan on the cake but not really decorated it yet; so far I’ve just written Merry Christmas around the edge of it.
With the leftovers Billy and I made balls of chocolate dipped marzipan, but we didn’t put enough chocolate on (!) so Dad added more chocolate to them and also made chocolate brazil nuts
The only christmas crafting that I can show you are the crochet snowflakes that I’ve been making over the past month or so…
Three of them were made using the Attic24 snowflake pattern, the rest I made up myself. I blocked them on cardboard using a mixture of water and pva glue (thank you Hannah!), they are pretty much dry now and they look really nice when they are stiff
There has been lots of kitten-loving since we got Prim, but don’t worry, Apple and Blossom are not being neglected :)
Have a good Christmas and a Happy new year >:o)
