the post about bauble-making
(beads found and leapt upon by me and the Girl in Hobbycraft last night - we had to kill time before picking up Mr Gonecycling, who seemed surprised that we were able to spend a happy hour in a craft shop - hello??)
mystery present stitching and constructing
and snowglobe making'n'shakin'
(I knew I hoarded those mini jars for a reason. The first one looks like he's jogging around the jar, and the second one has come unstuck and just drifts around....know the feeling)
and box decorating and chocolate stitching'n'stuffing
(thanks Gina! And decoupage paper found in Hobbycraft, just along from the beads...the Girl and I have discovered a new craft. The chocolates just need some tissue paper and their label: "Stuffed - the chocolates are, so you won't be" or some such, which I shall leave to the Girl to compose.)
to stitch a very special name onto a very special someone's very first Christmas stocking:
Born late this evening, but not a moment too soon!
I've no idea how much he weighs as I forgot to ask, no doubt my sister will fill me in with all the details tomorrow - we just know he's finally here - only 13 days late!
I think Christmas can start now.
Have a happy time, everyone - see you in the New Year if not before!
