I'm still here..................I think!!!!

I'm sorry but it has been quite a while since I have blogged but I have been very busy, I promise.

I have had a couple of successful craft fairs and that means lots of sewing into the wee small hours for me.  I honestly don't mind but it is lovely to have a few minutes to catch up reading blogs and also to think 'I don't have to sew unless I really want to!'

I would just like to thank all of my customers, both online and the lovely customers I have met at craft fairs for their custom and lovely comments - thank you I really appreciate each and every one of you!

Here is a photo of one of my recent craft fairs.  I'm sorry its not one of my better photos but the sun was shining right through the windows.

 I have never had a circular table before so that was a bit of a challenge, but I think it looks ok.
Now that all of the fuss and preparations for the fairs are over I now have had time to think about Christmas and yikes I am so under prepared I am scared to think about it all.  If anyone knows of any helpful little elfs that would come a weave their magic, I would be most grateful for their help.
In the New Year I have some decisions to make, mostly to do with how my little crafty business is going.  I am so pleased that people like what I love to create, but as I have a day job as well, I need to decide which direction I want My Calico Heart to go. So keep watching this space and after I have had a little think I will let you know what I have decided.

OK, thats a lot of words and talking so if any of you are still awake, I thought over the next week or so I would show you some Christmassy corners of my home.  I have only, just this weekend, started decorating the house for Christmas, a bit late, but it is starting to look a lot like Christmas ho ho ho!

I have 3 sets of lights on my tree, but one set has now decided not to shine brightly, and its too much trouble to take them off again!!

The white bag around my tree is designed to pull up over the tree which in theory will catch all of the needles so I wont be hoovering them up in July - I will let you know how it performs.

These cute little zinc decorations are new this year, I bought them from Ebay, and I just love how they look on my tree.

More photos soon.
Take care and keep warm.

It's never too late to decorate. A century ago, people sometimes put up trees on Christmas Eve. They kept them shut away in a room with doors so their children would be really surprised on Christmas morning. Imagine having all that to do on Christmas Eve! My German ancestors used to do that and my dad and his brothers used to tell us about it. So...decorate away! Your tree is beautiful! Merry Christmas.
