stocking up

Here is the reason I have been busy busy this week...


Ginger Pudding now stocked at Frippery, Colchester.....
10 Christmas Stockings have been made in shabby chic fabrics and colours and I'm hoping that Royal Mail delivered and these stockings are gracing the shelves today...
I have taken great pleasure in the fact that I have been 'working' this week....though its not been the best week to have been in gainful employment!! Mum has been in Bath at the Christmas markets (and visiting Cath) and my mother in law chose this week to fall during a squash game and break her wrist in 3 places!! (she's made a proper mess of it, needing surgery..she's fine but off babysitting duties for the forseeable ;) )
Cutting out 40 stocking shapes was not the most enjoyable thingbut seeing 10 Christmas stockings stacked up finished was.
I have made some more too- watch this space for listings in the blogshop.

Beautiful stockings - well done you. I might have bumped into your Mum at The Christmas Market in Bath (if she went last Wednesday that is!)

I DID bump into The Tom Show though - outside The Pump Room

These are lovely! I've been meaning to make some myself for popping Christmas presents in for my sister and a couple of friends - needless to say I've not got round to it yet :)

Well done Claire! They look super too. Your poor MIL!! How awful for her but I guess it will get her out of any Christmas preparations this year. There's good in everything.

The stockings are so pretty Claire! And your poor Mum-in-Law! I hope she recovers soon. (My dad's just gone into "rehab", bless him!)
