4 cartons of plums each 400g made 5 jars of jam.
They now have a fabric top and are ready to fill any gaps I may have. I have been saving the fruit containers to use as the base for the jars, they usually hold three. A great way to recycle and they look effective wrapped in cellophane and topped with a large bow.
Christmas tags have been made.
Written on and attached to the wrapped gifts. They are all ready to be packed into the car. All that remains to do is the write on the cards, which we intend to do over the weekend.
Christmas done and dusted, all ready for Santa...!
We also have a lot of family Birthdays over the next few months so they need to be wrapped and that will be another thing ticked off the list. I did spend some time making up the girls some bows for their hair, they do so love pretty things.
I loved sorting through the ribbon box, it has been awhile.
I have had to stay focused to get everything ready and still a couple of weeks to go, but I am thrilled that I didn't get into a panic with last minute issues. I will add that although Christmas is done and dusted, many of the jobs I wanted doing in the cottage remain untouched. We intend to take a break and relax prior to going away. Our work on the cottage will start again after Christmas. I have a pile of books that I want to browse and some little crochet and sewing projects to enjoy. There is no deadline so I can enjoy the process.
Mickey needs a little attention, he is in dire need of a wash and brush up.
Oops! Spoke too soon...
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
See you soon.
