today i have been promised a day to myself to finish all the christmas presents – especially for my three boys! i realise now that i have left it all a bit late… i'm starting to slightly panic… have also got a little flu. the weather has been strange here with the solstice, full moon, eclipse and perigee all at the same time. we've had rain and a cold day on monday – i was wearing my woolly socks! in summer!
so it will be sewing and felting and maybe baking today. yesterday i finished a diary that i made for a christmas present (hope the recipient doesn't read my blog anymore before christmas…)
emily introduced me to working with paper and making journals and left her pink binder with us to look after until she comes back :) i still feel really clumsy with my journal making when i compare it to emily's amazingly creative and artistic approach to paper, recycling, paint, collage… but i'd like to make a couple more of these in the next two days.
the shepherds have come! they have a small flock this year. and mary and joseph are almost at the stable…
