Merry Christmas!

Happy Christmas to all my friends and followers! Things are gathering speed now at the' Fricker 'household.
Alice is beside herself and I think Flora is too. Izy has finished the table decoration, William's cutting up yet more logs to try and warm up this place! Harry sadly isn't around as he is working as a chef in a very trendy bar in Instow, we do have him later tonight and tomorrow. I have a busy job to wrap rather a lot of pressies that I thought wasn't much!
The lane here is like an ice-rink and we still can't get in or out with a car, the sledge is fantastic but rides like a bobsleigh at a hundred miles an out anyone wanting a peaceful walk!
I am looking forward to the new year and moving forward with my new venture, although I do feel that it may take longer than first hoped, all my fingers and toes are truely crossed. May I wish you all A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!!

Christmas is nearly here!

In between all my Christmas shopping, I have been busy making all sorts of things for Christmas. I spent a wonderful day helping a dear friend Clare make bunting with Snowmen on each triangle. Clare had never sewed anything before so it did take a rather a long time, but the results were fab and we had lots of laughs along the way. Especially when trying to decide were to hang it!
The next day we swooped skills. Clare is a glass artist and so she taught me her the very tricky art of how to cut glass and make it into something amazing. I have no photos of my glass attempts yet, they are to follow.
I have also been making a much waited for Christmas stocking for Flora, something to keep forever and now Alice wants one too!

Home coming!

What a great weekend. I have managed to do 3 Christmas Fairs with the help of Flora and Alice, all being quite good earners and making some lovely friends on the way! Its quite interesting watching what people go for, some stand for long periods of time contemplating while other walk right up to you and take what they want quickly and walk away. I was lucky to sell nearly all my wears and what was left over ....I was really rather glad as ,I think they will make great pressies for my friends and family!
We had an unexpected surprise on Saturday. Harry came home a week early from his travels in SirLanka , he had run out of money. It was so good to see him and to hear all his funny stories of his travels and fantastic photography. For the first time I could actually see him following in my husbands footsteps as a travel writer and photographer, we are very proud of him and wish him well , Great to have you home Harry!
Exciting news for me this week as I have an add and small writeup coming out in a very trendy Wedding magazine called 'Wed' , I must go and buy it tomorrow.
