creating for Christmas..

 Have started watercolour painting again so this one is called Welsh sheep which I will give to my Dad for Christmas as he loves my paintings and hasnt been well lately
 Decorated sweet jars for the teachers inspired by according to matt blog
 My 7yr old painting along with me last weekend he loves watching Frank Clarke painting shows (sky channel 191 12 noon)
 simple cards to give to friends on the school run and neighbours
 My husband has been off this week so time for lunch at Morrisons which I prefer to expensive cafes as the food is always superb and reasonable..were hoping to go out for Christmas lunch tomorrow as our sons break up for Christmas in the afternoon!
saw this great video on youtube click here for the pattern from crochetgeek.  I added the heart to a cushion with some vintage buttons..a present for me!

As you may have noticed I have changed the blog background..quite like this brighter look for Christmas..

Have a lovely time preparing for Christmas and dont forget to treat yourself too;) even if its just for a cup of tea;)
