Paul and I went to a Christmas Craft Fair last Saturday ~ as visitors for a change. It was held at Broadway Gardens, which is a garden centre in St Catharine's, Ontario. We had never visited this place before, but I must admit that a lot of the crafts were of poor quality in comparison to the beautiful crafts I see on so many blogs.
I did buy two beautiful poinsettias ~ red, of course. I see the white ones and admire them, but I always want that touch of festive cheer.
On these cold evenings, it is nice to be able to snuggle up under something warm whilst reading or whiling away the hours with some other occupation. I thought that as the season is upon us; it was time to dig out my Christmas blanket.
I made this blanket a few years ago now, but it is still a favourite. I spent weeks knitting the squares and I think that I finished it within a month; so determined was I to have it done for Christmas Eve. The ends are fringed, but it is too large for you to see this in the photo.
The trouble with these darker days and evenings is that I have been unable to take any half decent photographs. I need the lights on even during the day, so I have been putting off taking pictures of my Christmas pieces in the hope of a bright day ~ I have reached the stage now, where I am going to take them regardless! Have a great weekend.
