Getting Ready for Christmas

I had a lovely time at work today as Lucy and I unpacked these gorgeous Christmas crafts.

There are all sorts of beautifully packaged patterns for cute things to make.

Lazy but productive!

We had a nice lazy Saturday morning.

I made a chocolate cake with my helper.

Lucinda was as usual feeling crafty and had been asking to do an applique canvas.

She drew up a design and gathered her fabrics. I started the first stitch and off she went.
