Feeling Festive

Look what I just got !
I couldn’t wait to get home and have a read.
Of course these stumbled into my basket too
Oh I couldn’t resist !!!
I was so excited that I only unpacked the refrigerated stuff from my shopping … the rest is waiting to be put away!
The minute I got in the door
the coffee machine was switched on,
 a mince pie plonked on a plate,
turf put on the fire
and minutes later 
I sat down with the magazine for a half hour of bliss.

I have spent the entire time going oooohhh, ahhhhhh,
oh that’s so cute,
oh I want that,
oh I must make that.
Here’s why …
I want to show you everything but it’s my pet hate when I see all
 the contents of a magazine on a blog. 
So … I’ll just show you a few things.
How gorgeous are these teddy bears.  The patterns for both are in the magazine.
There’s also patterns and instructions to make these adorable mice.

Never thought I’d be calling mice adorable !

And loads of other patterns for fairies, deocorations, wreaths, cards etc etc including this gingerbread couple and felt owls  Sorry about the picture quality but it’s been a very wet and grey morning here in Ireland.

There are also some lovely gift sections – all of which I want!
But these really stood out
Soooo cute!

Right I better stop now.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. 

Don’t forget to enter the lovely giveway I’m hosting for the gorgeous book Freya & Fred.  Click here to enter.

Have a lovely day.  I’m off to get ready for a dinner party.  I’m hosting a Come Dine with me night – will tell you all about it tomorrow.

    I had seen this mag advertised in another one and wondered whether it was going to be any good – that answers my question! Thanks!

    I had started to get christmassy and then weather changed to super hot and I just couldnt think about it! Still it's meant to be central heating weather again by the end of the week!

    Hmmm…. You just made me feel all Christmassy!
    Can I have a mince pie, please? 😉
