Christmas crafting

I had been hoping for a more home made christmas this year, I had big plans of handmade candles for gifts, gingerbread biscuits, christmas stockings, tree decorations and printed christmas wrapping paper all made by my fair hands but then the real world took over.

The whole house has been ill each taking our turns over the last two weeks to have the flu and in the midst of all this my son turned 2! I can not believe he is two already but on the other hand it feels like he has been around a lot longer then just two years.

So what have I managed to do?

4 stockings, I still have one to go and two loops to put on but I am almost there I can see the finish line now.

I have also finished the christmas tree decorations I started with my son, but I am a bit disappointed that I didn’t have time to jazz them up a bit more with glitter.

I am hoping to do the gingerbread men soon, so I may still get that done before christmas but everything else is just going to have to go on hold.

Did I mention I started knitting a scarf for my mum for christmas three years ago and she only got it this year? I am currently knitting a scarf for my son, I wonder what age he will be by the time he gets it?
