The Silly Season!

It’s been bonkers busy round here!

One of the highlights this week was visiting an annual Continental Market in Belfast for the first time (I don’t get out much!).

A wonderful treat for the senses, and great company too (thanks mum and dad)!

Thursday was an emotional day!  I was greatly moved by the news of the death of Nelson Mandela!  I have read his book and consider him a giant among men.

It was also my daughter’s school formal on Thursday.  I found it a very emotional experience (feelings of pride and over-protection just don’t quite cover it!) & I only just held it together!

Classes continue a-frenzy, as we hurtle towards Christmas and really start panicking about all the Christmas presents we want to make!

Yesterday, a group of creatively uninhibited kids conquered their zipper feet and made these wonderful pencil cases and pouches!

I love how fearless children are when it comes to sewing, putting colours and patterns together!  Well done young’uns (& adults too)!  You are an inspiration to generations of all ages.

Last night in the Hollies’ Household we put up our Christmas decorations!  I’m really pleased with our ‘fake’ tree this year – the girls have done a brill job of decorating it!

One more week of classes and then I can really start to panic about all the presents I haven’t got yet!!

Hope you are managing to keep your head in this Silly Season!
