Some progress

I have managed to finish the mini Christmas banner:

And advanced on the hearts design:

With the cold weather I am very much into fleece material! Fleece jumper, fleece hat, fleece gloves, fleece scarf, fleece blanket, and my latest addition: fleece pillow cover! So much softer for the head to rest for the night sleep.


Paris decorations

Some lovely window shopping last night, enjoy:

Last Sunday ...

... we gathered at a friends' house and started preparations for Christmas.

We made mince pies!

We made some craft: candle decoration, gift tags, crab tree apples wreaths!

Got involved in the baking!

And even did some babysitting!

All in all it was a wonderful Sunday afternoon, finishing with a real feast!

Have a good weekend,


Ongoing projects

I have done a bit of knitting lately, the cold weather must have inspired me.

The pink one will become a scarf neck warmer cowl.

As for the white one will become a small shawl, but I still need to knit some sort of ends to be able to tie it on.

It is really soft!

And a return to cross stitch, two projects in the making, one a Christmas decoration and the other one a whirly heart, more getting towards Valentine Day, well in advance.

Hope you are all well and keeping warm! Enjoy the weekend,


Been away ...

Last weekend I was back in London, and I was glad of the warm welcome of friends, as weather was purely autum: cold, grey and wet.

Followed by a trip to Normandy, Cabourg, same over this side of the channel: cold, grey and wet.

Back home, Paris is exactly the same ...

Waiting for Christmas now!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows."
