It's been a great weekend of crafting, Christmas and friends!
Yesterday we went to knitting group in Newburgh - we ate cakes made by Allyson, Laurence and Louise, we watched what other people were knitting, including Andrea's scarf -
and we gave Peter and Laura that run the knitting group for us, the poinsettia wreath that we had been making for them for the past few weeks!
After knitting group I headed home to spend some time with my parents - that was a fun afternoon - I had planned a relaxing afternoon of knitting, and after delivering some Christmas cards with my mum we came home for just that - except the world had other plans - a power cut (just in our street, in fact just in a few houses in our street) that lasted 4 hours and we were left in a world of candles and torches!!
I finally escaped to my friends tree decorating party in Edinburgh - a really nice night, when not too many bizarre things ended up on the tree (a Christmas tradition to see how many things we can hide from Gary in his Christmas tree!) - this time just some satsuma peel, a cork, 3 walnuts and a piece of garlic bread!!
Back home today I had some friends round for gluwhein and german cookies - it was a nice afternoon, freezing cold outside but my home full of friends bringing warmth!
