Home bears end of year

Hi everyone it has been a while since I’ve been here!

It seems so much has changed in the past couple of months, November still had quite a bit of colour in the garden…….

…….and then December brought the snow, it was lovely however to see the little bulbs pushing through!

In recent days though it has become quite mild again.

There has been some knitting for the little person in my life over the last few weeks…….

…….a little person who is just beginning to realise the magic of Christmas!

There has been lots of festive animal making too.

They have all now been posted off to their new homes and I am so grateful for all the support given to GRD this year.

I made 55 little girls during 2017 and I finished off with a little bunny called Yule who was my 350th animal!

Today is the Winter Solstice and one of my favourite days of the year because today the light begins to return and that is such a lovely thought.

And according to the GRD calendar it’s only 10 days to Pre-Spring…..wonderful!!!

In the meantime though there has been lots of Christmas preparation going on and it will be lovely to celebrate the day with my family around me.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas with those you love!

Happy Christmas! 🎄

Hello Vivienne, I was wondering if you would have “one more post” for 2017. This has been a fabulous year and your photos and creations were the cherry on the top. Happy to look back at Miss A A, your garden, animals, everything. Well, see you here, on Etsy and on IG in 2018.
