Christmas crochet

They tell us that the Christmas season is upon us so, on that note we decided to have our full works Christmas party at The Dock tonight.

There was a very delectable spread of goodies as, of course, our followers have come to expect









A Christmas tree

And candles









Canapes and pate with crackers and very gooey cheese









Some crochet work on display














Anne wore her Christmas slippers









And of course Santa just had to make an appearance!  Thanks to B for the Santa pressies, very thoughtful.









Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyoneHope to see you in 2013.

    1. I thought I would finish the repetition I'm on and then do another one, but having seen it out properly last night I think I'll just finish this repetition. Although ideally I'd like it to to cover husband when he's lying on sofa, so will test that out tonight! May need the original plan after all!!

    1. Hi Angela

      Holding the Christmas tree together we have oasis, polystyrene, cocktail sticks, a small length of bamboo, and some green and/or gold paper to cover the joins! For the complete recipe you will have to be put in contact with our resident tree-maker, Lorna. But then, of course, it may be one of Santa's little secrets :-)
