Just dashing past to announce the winner of the silver clay giveaway: it's number 65, Calico Kate. Congratulations Kate - please could you email me your address and the book and kit will be on its way to you soon.

Sorry for the delay, there was a sixth birthday party here at the weekend.

Monkey cake pops featured, as did make-your-own glitter pipe cleaner hats,

and a game of musical flowers.

Happy Birthday little one.

December's Making Winter Week will begin next Monday (12th). Mrs Thriftyhousehold will be hosting the blog hop this month where you can share winter's good things.

I suspect next week will involve decorations. I have a tutorial planned.

Meanwhile it's back to preparation for the Selvedge Christmas Fair.

Golly gosh! Miss P1 looks so grown up :-)

Good luck at the Selviedge Fair, I'd love to come to see all those fab creative people and their stalls - but I'll be on a train heading up to Merseyside / and back (knitting all the way!)

BTW - read the piece on the Cam Evening News web site - fab! (and thanks for the mention)
