Just to say I baked my Christmas cake this weekend - between power cuts  Grin


It always seems like such an effort, what with having to double line the tin etc and 3+ hours in the oven, with fingers crossed that the power won't go off.  But it is all done and can sit happily in a corner being spoonfed brandy at regular intervals.  Cheesy  Until I get around to icing it nearer to Christmas. 

Getting this out of the way gives me a sense of achievement and gets my mental gears into Christmas mode so I have also made a start on my Christmas cards. 

I plan to write up how I do them in case anyone else wants to know.

Hope everyone else's Christmas plans are off to a flying start.

They are just decorations but I am sure they could be used as earrings if I made them with proper wire.  These are just beads strung on copper wire so I don't think they could be worn as earrings.
(I've explained how I make them here.)
