Icicles, mittens and stockings

Hello! I hope that everyone is keeping warm and wrapped up in the cold. All the snow is gone here (well, there are a few little patches of it here and there), but we had quite a lot of it which was lovely. And the icicles in our garden have gone too, I think they were the best bit!
These ones were forming by our back door along the clematis that we have growing along the fence....


I've been making a few more little felt decorations for the tree, they are great way to use up all those little odd pieces of ribbon, fabric and sparkely things that are stashed away.

Here is the mitton and the stocking that I made using a blanket stitch to sew them together...


And here is Bruce the (Blue Spruce) Christmas tree - finally brought in from the garden last weekend. I'm quite pleased that he is still green but he has a bit of needle droppage bless him which I am hoping a few glugs of water will help with. Looks lovely and Christmassy with the lights on, we went for the traditional multi-coloured fairy lights (absolute bargin from Argos - 80 lights for about five pounds!)


Have a wonderful weekend!
