Head above water

It has been busy around here. One thing after another. Firstly, I've been trickling along with the Christmas crafting: some napkins for gifts...
with applique vegetables.

And than we had a bit of chicken pox
which meant that M wasn't allowed to come to B's brothers wedding and wear this...

and for which I had been tearing my hair out making this...
The result was passable (although the pictures barely are),

And, we still have scaffolding all over the house, and builders tramping in and out,

But yesterday after driving back from the London wedding, we got our tree, and now the place feels much jollier!

I hope your son is feeling better. Your creations are wonderful! Love the vegetable napkins. What a great idea. My favourite is the t-shirt. I must say the wedding cake does look very professional!
