Christmas Goodies

As usual, way behind with everything, including getting Christmas presents done!

Suddenly realised haven't got anything for the friends we are spending Boxing Day with so made a SOS call to the Stitchery Queen yesterday evening and asked her about the pot stands she made last year.

hpim5557 She very kindly talked me through what to do and I finished the first one about an hour ago.  The one bottom left has got to be backed and "stuffed", and then they are ready.  They are so easy to make - no quilting involved and you get to have a rummage through your Christmas stash at the same time.

The Old One is cooking curry this evening - I'm on strike - and tomorrow it is just going to be the three of us, but with The Young One directing operations from the sofa whilst watching My Fair Lady.

And on that note, I wish all of you a peaceful and happy time over the festive season, drink and eat lots on Christmas Day, and those of you in the US, keep warm and safe.


(The potholder is for someone who shall remain nameless as the things that are going with it aren't ready.  Shhhhhhhh).
