Singing in the Rain...

Well that's a bit of a fib, but it is raining, and we did go singing, but that was inside, and it wasn't raining then.

Today's tick off the list was the Cubs & Scouts carol service.  As ever, it was a bit organisationally-challenged; all the packs had made painted jam-jar candle holders, the tea-lights were LED, for health and safety reasons, but I did hear at least 2 smash on the floor, hey ho ho ho!

                         Don't blink!
I did get a start on my parent's table mats too, and I even pre-washed the Essex Linen, a first, and I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of fraying and tangle at the end.  I am not going to make a habit of it, but I reckoned this was the worthy exception to the rule.

So I am settling in for the Great British Sewing Bee Christmas special and writing a 'last minute' food shopping list, because the shops are shut for a whole day, and you know how we have to prepare as if they are going to be shut until New Year!

  11. LED tealights? That's a bit of a shame, but I'm sure it was all lovely! Wasn't the GBSB fab, made me want to make even more things :-)
