Last week we visited Chatsworth House (www.chatsworth.org) in Derbyshire to see the house decorated for Christmas. this year the theme is Wind on the Willows. I adore this story, it is one of my very favourites. The house was not a disappointment at all it really was magical and it really got us into the Christmas spirit. They have a new booking system so the house doesn't get to crowded when you visit. We booked our time in advance and it was worth it, no queuing and we got to have a good look at everything without feeling rushed or crushed.

Since leaving nursing and starting my little business I have been busy sewing and making lots of little things of loveliness. I had a little stall recently at a Christmas fete at a local school so I got busy and made some Christmas tree decorations. I love snowmen so I couldn't resist making some using Little Joys fabric from Penny Roses fabrics. I have a few left so I am going to add them to my new Etsy shop this week.
Fairy lights always make me smile.
Well that's all for today, I have some bunting to make and cards to write, presents to wrap...............
