Soon it will be Christmas and I've been in the mood for it for quite some time this year. I already took my copy of Nigella Christmas off the shelf in November and have been thinking about Christmas crafting and decorations a lot.
We brought down our christmassy stuff from the attic last Sunday and now it looks quite cozy here.
I've also started to use my christmassy tea cups.
As for the Christmas crafting, unfortunately my ideas by far exceeded my amounts of time and energy this year. I started some little projects (mix and match potholders from Modern Log Cabin Quilting, elves from Scandinavian Stitches, I even cut a stack of squares for a simple christmassy quilt), but I doubt I'll finish any of them in time for this Christmas.
Anyway, I think the most important thing is enjoying the feeling of anticipation and those few quiet moments in the weeks before Christmas. When it's dark and cold outside, it's nice to plan and dream and let your imagination travel to a colourful and sparkly Winter Wonderland. Have a nice time waiting for Christmas! :-)
