People just keep feeding me nuts

Oooo, Christmas is so close now.  Are you getting excited?  I've pretty much bought all my presents, phew.  And i've even made my sister's skirt - did I mention that already?  If you follow me on Twitter then you'll already know but this year my sister asked me to make her a skirt.  Now I do make the odd piece of clothing (see some of my creations here) but I'm always nervous about making them for other people.  Also, I normally work with quite cheap fabrics, in the £2.99 per metre range.  But my sister wanted a Liberty print, so we're talking in the £19.95 per metre range.  Fooooook!  Anyways, it has been made, and i'll post pics in the New Year (well I can't ruin the surprise can I?).

 I love these little reindeers.  They were actually my dad's so of course that makes them even more special.  And the Bot created a little snow scene out of icing sugar - I was very impressed, ha ha!  

And the little fella at the top of the post is our nutcracker that we picked up in New York last Christmas.  They had these ads on tv featuring the nutcracker who kept saying, "Errr, people just keep feeding me nuts." in this weird little voice.  We found it hilarious but you'll just have to trust me on that one!

Do you like the new top?  I bought it from Hennes the other day - I just couldn't resist all the ruffles.  And it's not a colour i'd normally choose - it is terracotta? I'm not sure, but I like it and it's comfy and cosy.  Brillo.
