Forget Santa, for now it's Emma's workshop ;)

So I thought I would whizz on by just to say hello and hope you are all enjoying the half term so far. We haven't done much due to the kiosk and weather. I have been very busy with some things though...yes it is to do with the Christmas Fayre hehe! I thought I would show you what has kept me busy this evening, so you all know I am doing my own fair share ;)
It really is like a little Santas work shop here most days now. With only a couple of weeks left before the event and to send my advent swap parcel off I am trying to get as much as possible done. Here was tonights table...
I must admit I am very much in love with felt at the moment. I haven't used it to this extent in the past and now I am hooked. So simple and much faster than some crafts. I need more practice with sewing(which I think I am going to get somehow!) These gingerbread men are the cutest.

 Sewing on lovely ribbon. The light was awful and I hate this camera but you get the idea...

 This little chap needs some eyes and to be sewn together then he can join his little gingerbread friends :)

Loving felt I really am. I can see a lot of home made decorations adorning my tree this year...YIPEE!

I would like to thank you all for your recent comments about the hubbys job situation and I am pleased to share with you all that he has acquired a new job it is nearer to home and he is straight in as team leader and they are training him to be kitchen manager so he is well happy(as am I).

I hope you all have a Happy Halloween. We are going to an organised party which I am so happy about. We normally go all out at Holloween but this year it is so hectic here that I am glad I haven't got the worry and the kids just have to turn up and enjoy themselves.

Take Care
