Christmas Dreams

A little girl's Christmas dream come true. Christmas meal with BOTH her grandmas.

Whilst a bigger girl is pleased with time to tackle some orignal, lengthways knitted socks in amazing coloured yarn.

Christmas ecstasy

Who's enjoying this most! Me or Lessie?
Spiralling Diamond socks designed byKaren Wessel in Regia Christmas sock yarn. The Photo does not do justice to the cream and sparkling gold Lurex yarn.

A British cuppa

My Italian friends are always a bit disappointed that I don't drink tea. So this afternoon I gave them the works, complete with new tea pot and lemon slice squeezer. Not to mention THe Royal tea Cosy.

Patty and Lorenza trying it out....

Tweed jacket by Debbie Bliss

By me really. Naturally the pcture doesn't do justice to the tweedy wool, waisted darted fit and tartan jaquard patch pockets and elbow patches.
A slight doubt - too many buttons?
I was aiming for a quirky Vivien Westwood look, not a clown!
