Apologies to those who have received this post already. I am re-posting it to see if I can sort out some glitches from Tuesday.

Cheers, Karen.

I always find there is one week in the lead up to Christmas that is busier than all the others. Lots of deadlines to meet and functions to attend. This is the crazy week for me. Three Christmas parties down and three more to go this week. All the cards and parcels that need to be mailed have been sent. Decorations are up and nearly all presents are wrapped and under the tree. Next week I get to slow down and relax.

I made these books as gifts for one of the groups I am with. Lovely hand made paper inside.

They can be used as Christmas memory books to keep cards, photos, lists, menus – anything at all.

I made a small cushion as a little gift, too. This one uses a Lynette Anderson pattern variation.

This last one is not Christmas. I knitted this gorgeous little dress for our grand daughter. It looks lovely on her.

I love the detail in the hem.

Time to get back to work. I hope everyone is enjoying their version of the Christmas crazies. Good luck getting ready for Santa Day.

Cheers, Karen
