A Crafty Weekend

It has been a weekend of rain, rain and more rain!

Luckily Tetbury is on a hill, so only a couple of parts in the valley flood, but all around us there has been flooding. My thoughts go out to anyone who has flooded, fingers crossed the weather eases over the next few days...

As it has been such terrible weather and leaving Tetbury through flooded roads seemed like a crazy idea, we have spent the weekend in the house. We did have one walk into town to get magazines and have some hot chocolate:

My magazine was the lovely Mollie Makes and the boys had National Geographic Kids and the Cbeebies magazine:

The Cbeebies magazine was a Christmas special and mini has worn his Santa hat all weekend! I have to say that magazine has been a great spend. Mini has spend all weekend armed with scissors and sellotape making Santa, elves and other decorations!
I have been busy on the sewing machine finishing our advent calendar from the fabulous Blueberry Park.

I will review the kit tomorrow, but needless to say it is great!

I also made some Christmas bunting for the living room. The boys have asked for more!

We also baked our first batch of Christmas biscuits, which was great fun!


In the last 3 years I have spend this time of year concentrating on getting bags and pouches made for craft fairs and orders. This year it has been brilliant to be able to spend a weekend just doing things with the boys to start celebrating Christmas. As you can see we are starting to get into the Christmas spirit..
