We have been thinking about getting organised for Christmas for weeks now. Ever since we started hearing people talking about "Christmas in July". This week however, Christmas has been thrust upon us. Sophie (Miss 26) was asked to design a nativity wall hanging. And make 20 wall hangings. She took the challenge on and this is the start of her nativity. It's very simple and very sweet, and it makes me think about Christmas. I have stated my aim to have a handmade Christmas this year here before. I just need to make sure I start in time! So today, I packed away the quilt I am in the middle of quilting (I am so OVER it! I just need a little break from it. I'm sure I'll finish it e-v-e-n-t-u-a-l-l-y - is that how procrastination is spelt?) and "poured" some Christmas fabrics on my desk. My mind is full of Christmassy ideas. I am thinking I will start with some decorations, just to get me in the mood.
