The Good Shepherd






Will performed in his first nativity on Thursday, he is completely taken with the story and said his lines loud and proud, or so I am told by Daddy who went to watch as I was at work. Simon took Will to the cafe after school as a treat but Will was fading fast and spent the rest of the day under a blanket on the sofa. Friday was Christmas party at school but Will was still poorly and took another duvet day. This meant he missed out on Christmas Party and Santa! His lovely teacher did catch a friend in the playground though to make sure he got his goodie bag and cards. Poor boy-he is just well enough to be naughty today but poorly enough to really flip if you try to tell him off! Joy.




I hope you are all having a better run up to the big day, but judging from what I have been reading on other blogs I suspect not.


I have either finished, or missed the boat on all my Christmas sewing so today I got the sketch book out and put down some ideas for next year. I think it will be my year of 'cuffs'. Here is my prototype. Embellished felt with hand sewing and backed with cotton. I am not pleased with the elastic loop closure and am about to snip it off for a buttonhole loop. It will just mean I need help to get it on and off- oh well! Watch this space for more hot cuff action, hopefully I will get chance to do some crafting over the break, we are staying with Mum and Dad so I will have a partner in crime...hooray!














So, I think will be the last post before Christmas day; Happy Yule, Seasons Greetings, however you see the world and whatever festivities you partake of I hope this week ahead is a really lovely one for you and your families. xxxxxx

Are you sure Will wasn't down The Good Shepherd pub? Hence the poorliness, and possibly the naughtiness too. You are allowed to tell him off, you're his mum and them's the rules.

Have a fabulous couple of weeks and a much better new year than the one we're leaving. Cuffs... hmm, a whole new must-have!

Bless, the shepherd looks so cheeky.
Hope you all enjoy the festivities.
Look forward to seeing the cuff and it's adventures!
