Christmas Cheer

I hope you all well and not too frazzled. The stress is getting to me a bit.  It's not bad stress, just that funny feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you think of all the things still to do.  At least the Christmas present shopping is out of the way.  Just the dreaded food shop and then I can relax.
Here's a sample of one of Miss Cakeaholics Baileys cupcakes. They are yummy.
Well just in case I don't get chance to blog again here's wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful and prosperous New Year x

May the Force be with you

Is it me or is it beginning to feel like Christmas?  I got a bit panicky this week as I had got it into my head that Christmas was next weekend.  You can imagine my relief when I realised that I had another week.
I hope you are more organised than me.  I'm like a headless chicken at the moment scooting from one thing to another whilst not really getting anything done.
Steve wanted us to spend the day together yesterday as it was his last day off until Christmas Day.
I needed to go shopping and so did he so we went in to Doncaster.  It was a pretty swift visit as you don't hang about with a bloke in tow do you?  Anyway on the way home we stopped off at the Lakeside Shopping Centre which is literally five minutes away from where we live, and look who was there.
Storm Trooper
There were all the characters from the Star Wars movies.  If I'm wrong about this being a Storm Trooper then I apologise.  No doubt Joe will put me right.
There were lots of people taking photographs but when they got out of the way this guy posed especially for me.  It must be the first time I have actually had my camera with me and the courage to get stuck in and take pictures.  I'm quite shy and don't like drawing attention to myself.  However since blogging I feel the need to take pictures so I have something interesting to talk to you about.  So thank you for visiting, you are helping me to face my fears, so to speak.
Finished projects this week have been the dolls blanket and a dog jacket.  Unfortunately because I didn't complete them until Friday night and they we collected Saturday morning, it slipped my mind to take photographs.  Never mind.

More Finished Items

Just to let you know I have completed another two jobs on my to do list.
One doggy jacket for a puppy not yet born.  My friend Carron has a friend who will have the pick of the next litter that Rupert's Mum has.  This has been made in lieu of the happy arrival.  You've guessed it.  She wants a girl.
And one pair of baby bootees.  My customer didn't seem too keen on these but I think they're gorgeous.  I did give her the option to have another pair but she took them anyway.  It is abit disappointing when someone thinks they're doing you a favour but you can't win them all can you?
I also finished a tidy bag and a silk necklace but forgot to take pictures.
I took an order yesterday for 2 more baby cardigans but they're not needed until April so that's not a problem, another decoupage box and another silk necklace, these are for Christmas so I had better get my skates on.
As always thank you for visiting my blog and I'll speak to you again soon.
