With the delights of autumn turning to winter my thoughts are now firmly set on Christmas and that inevitably leads to "ooh what can I make?". I had my lightbulb moment whilst doing my weekly shop and my daughter asked me if they were having advent calendars this year and I thought "I know; I'll make them!" This was a completely crazy idea as not only is it being done as a surprise so I'm restricted to evenings but also I had this idea on the 22nd November which meant I only had a few days of November left to make two advent calendars!
So Friday morning whilst my littlest munchkin was at nursery, I spent a very happy 2 hours cutting out 100 little felt stockings to make into an advent calendar. I will hopefully be decorating them using remnants of fabric, ribbons and buttons I've faithfully
hoarded collected over the years!
