I was surprised to find another ornament had landed on my doormat when I got home from work today. It has come all the way from Texas and arrived to brighten up our post-Christmas blues. Our tree has drooped and I don’t think it will survive until the sixth night. I have placed the ornament on my new Ikea tree which will be staying up all year round.

I received this wonderful ornament from Neele in Dusseldorf this week. It was beautifully wrapped and a real pleasure to open!
I finished this last minute present for an aunt we are visiting tomorrow. The design is from simple sewing and was so simple to make. I used some of my favourite Cath kidston fabric.
We also made some delicious gingerbread biscuits so I hope my aunt likes her handmade gifts. I even made a little felt Robin gift tag!
We’ve had another busy weekend preparing for Christmas. We had our own Christmas meal yesterday, I even made some cranberry sauce! We finally got around to having a real fire in the lounge and put our Christmas tree up. The tree is laden with handmade ornaments from the swap – I recently received two more:
from Heather in San Diego and this cute monkey from Lucy Byrd
