A lovely lady I know has this little business making silver and costume jewellery beauties for us all to wear, at very reasonable prices. She's a qualified silversmith with a whimsical bent and everyone who I've bought her jewellery for has been delighted by their gifts.
I have just discovered Martha Stewarts website. There is so much stuff on there to inspire and to create. Here is an advent calendar so beautiful in its simplicity. http://www.marthastewart.com/265851/m-is-for-matchbox-advent-calendar

The other day I saw this episode of Kirstie's homemade Christmas on repeat on one of the channels. I thought this would be an awesome present for the writers and journal keepers in your life. Just wish I had a bit more time to knock a few of them up!

Since we last spoke I have been manically knitting tiny cardigans for the new arrival (pattern here). The fact that these cardigans are tiny means that I can afford to splash out on beautiful wool. There have been a few done in soft cashmere and a few in fluffy lambs wool. I have slowed down now and all projects are on hold whilst I gather my strength for the days ahead.
At the beginning of my pregnancy I was bought the starting material for a changing bag, it is safe to say that I haven't even gotten the material out of the bag it came in. I doubt I'll get the chance to for some time either. Maybes I should use the material for clothing for my DDs and enjoy it in other ways.
