That Work Thing!

Santa & Elf

Yes I have been missing again. This time because a wee thing called work got in the way. I don't have regular work hours during the winter months, but I am always available to help out when required and this was one such occasion when my presence was requested.
It was our annual Supersonic Santa weekend where Santa leaves his busy North Pole behind and comes to meet our wee visitors on board our Boeing 707 in the shadow of Concorde.

We also had a visit from the wonderful local theatrical groups Musical Youth & Encore who treated us to a variety of beautifully sung Christmas carols. Which sounded just divine in the acoustics of the hanger.

We had crafty "make and take" for the youngsters with the chance to print their own wrapping paper or make 3D Christmas cards. Also a look back at Christmas during war-time with toys and recipes  from the era.

Now to Knitting

So the above activity ate up many hours, but I still managed to finish all the knitting on the Daybreak for DH. Still have the ends to be sewn in and washed and blocked, but I am so pleased to have finished the long part. Pictures and finished item to appear here soon. Talking of which DH's birthday is on Wed, so I'd better get a move on!!

Stay safe and happy crafting.
