Christmas TIME

I've hit the December point known as - "if only there were more time" - I think it about a thousand times a day as I have yet another crazy idea of something to make/cook/do for Christmas. I like to think that if I could just abandon the job for December that I'd get it all done. I'd get more done for sure but it could never be 'all' as the inspiration out there ensures fresh supplies of schemes for wintery delights - like learning to crochet just to make snowflakes or building my own snow village or... well I'm sure you all get the idea and have a billion things bubbling over that you'll never quite get to.
So it's prioritise like crazy, craft for sanity (and if it is as simple as wrapping some berries and mistletoe round a heart shaped wreath - jump for joy) and I try to remember that seeing the people I'm making the presents for is the most important thing of all!
I don't think I'll be back here before I head down to the wilds of Cornwall for Christmas (where the internet is like a candle in the wind) - so let me pass on my Season's Greetings and farewell to you as I head off to knit a little more and watch The Holiday with my cousin while chomping on some roasted chestnuts. Ah, it may be crazy but I LOVE this time of year. Hope it treats you all well.

Love your wreath. I'm no way ready for Christmas yet. As for Christmas knitting, not even started that yet.Have a great Christmas. We had lovely 'Christmas weather' here last weekend, cold and sunny. I hope it stays like that for Christmas.

There will always be next Christmas and the one after and the one after.

Maybe next year I'll make a wreath as beautiful as yours. I can only hope :)

I'm with you completely on feeling like time is just slipping away. I'm not sure how to get it all done, so I'll just have to do what I can, and let that be good.

Oh, so jealous, we were in England last year visiting my mum and dad and were in Cornwall for awhile. I'm ridiculously homesick for Devon and Cornwall this year. Sigh!!!!

Have a lovely Christmas!
