It's been a busy couple of weeks. There was our Christmas Market where we saw some fabulous hand crafted goods, shared some Christmas goodwill with our friends from U-Turn, learnt how to finger knit, ate mince pies galore and enormous slices of Cynthia's mum's coconut cake...
...and made some crazy looking baubles for our Christmas tree (what exactly is it that happens to people when they get their hands on glitter and glue?).
The tree went up at the weekend at the Community Christmas Tree Festival along with some other amazing entries. Ours has the cups on top instead of a fairy. I particularly likes the tree made of party hats, the reindeer sculpture and the model with the light-up tree-skirt.
We also met up at the Geffrye Museum for a great deal of chat, a fair amount of tea and coffee and lots of oohing and cuddling of Jo's baby boy.
And as if that wasn't enough, we even managed a bit of fourteen- point- star crafting on Tuesday evening at the Crown because Elizabeth produced some pretty paper from the depths of her handbag a la Mary Poppins. You'd be amazed what you can do with a large star other than put it on your tree.
Our thanks go to everyone who joined in, sold and bought, and made these events such fun, particularly to all of you who brought along Christmas gifts for U-Turn. We know it's very much appreciated by Rio and all the women who used the drop-in centre. We'll be meeting again on 17th January when we'll hear all about setting up a business, so do remember to put that in your new diaries when you get them. Until then:
have a Wonderful Christmas.
