More Christmas 2010

Our Christmas tree...

and our MASSIVE turkey!

And again I couldn't help myself, I made something for my partner...a stocking! It was his first christmas with my family so I thought he deserved to have a special stocking as he didnt have one before!

Oh and please excuse the cheesy grin! :)

Christmas 2010

Well I know this is a bit late but I just wanted to share some of the things I made for christmas 2010!
My partner's parents are scottish and I wasnt sure what to get them, so I thought of getting something personal, something that they couldn't find up there so I thought of a festive hamper full of welsh foods!

Fantastic, so I got to work...

This was the basket I found to put my items in, it had brown leather straps to do up but these were taken off whilst I was organising it. I decided to make it a little more special to make a lining for it. I found some beautiful flowery fabric left over from when I made my skirt. 
I was sending it up to scotland with my partner and I wanted to make sure the items didnt brake in his suitcase, so I filled it with some shredded red tissue to add some christmassy charm to it....
I bought some gorgeous welsh praline cream liquer for them, I also bought a big bottle for myself! it tastes so yummy!! (i adore praline) I also put some welsh cakes (well I had to really didnt I!) and some other bits and bobs. Oh and the little parcel that was wrapped up, a tree decoration, a bit of a jokey decoration, it was a christmas sheep with 'Nadolig Llawen' which means Merry Christmas.

The finished package looked like this!
