It takes me a while to get into the Christmas spirit, but I always get there in the end. I want to wish every one of you a lovely and happy Christmas with your loved ones. Hope there is loads of food, drink and happy crochet moments by the fire.
I wanted to share some pictures of my tree, it doesn’t have many ornaments I’m afraid since I haven’t collected many in the few Christmas I have spent away from home. However, there are some very special decorations hanging from this tree and they have been handmade by the amazing people from a knit club here in Edinburgh. We meet every Monday, rain or shine, get our needles and hooks out and just eat, knit, crochet and talk with each other. It is definitely one of my favourite times of the week when I am not away somewhere for work and I have met some pretty amazing ladies so I am very thankful to have found it. If you live in the area we meet on Mondays from 4ish to 8ish at the Safari Lounge in London Road.
We do an ornament exchange as part of our Christmas party and that is why my tree has the prettiest of decorations, the mousie on top of the tree is definitely my favourite and it couldn’t go anywhere else than at the top, of course!
For those of you who like me are far away from home this Christmas I send you all my love since it can be a hard time. Remember all the blessings and the people you have met in your new country who are now your family as well. I always Skype with my family while they are having their Christmas dinner, they put a laptop in the middle of the table and we chat and open presents, isn’t technology amazing?
Well my dear readers, enjoy this merry time , hope you get loads of yarn under the tree and that all your crocheted gifts fit perfectly!
