    Christmas swap 2018

    I really didn't think this through. My postman was laughing his head off to deliver a parcel to "Redhotchick" 😂 I got a big smile from him and he said "Redhotchick!!" winked and jogged away laughing.

    Christmas Eve Boxes

    😁😆🤣 Gosh, I started quite a thing here! In the interests of full disclosure. I do not have children. No one is going to make a Christmas eve box for me (OH is lovely, but surprising me with presents is not something I'd anticipate him doing!) I know someone who goes completely overboard at Christmas with presents for their children. It is obscene and I don't say that flippantly, and yes, same person has been doing Christmas eve boxes for years! I'm wanting to put a few treats together for myself on Christmas eve. It will just be me and my OH, and he's not one for staying up late. So I'm thinking, cosy pyjamas, scented candle, face mask, hand cream, book and/or relaxing Christmas music, some nibbles and a drink. it's not really a box, and it won't be a surprise! The best thing I could do to make Christmas special is spend some time with my dad and have an early night. I remember having new pyjamas for Christmas eve as a child, but I'm sure that was my mum's way of encouraging us to get ready for bed! Also new clothes for Christmas day. As an adult I can remember opening a present at midnight in my mum's kitchen. Happy times.

    Christmas Eve Boxes

    Does anyone make Christmas eve present boxes? What do you put in them? Pyjamas, what else?

    I'm making chicken stock and the kitchen is filled with its delicious smell. I haven't made any for ages. it is going to become rice soup.

    Hi! We did! Hooray! it was the thing that put me off going to India for years! We had a plan... Scrupulous hand hygiene! we took the Clinell hand wipes and some antibacterial hand gel. We washed our hands before eating, everywhere has a sink to wash your hands. We would have liked to try more street food, but only saw samosas and Pani puri. We didn't eat the Pani Puri as the filling (tamarind water? was made with unfiltered water, or so we were told) We did have samosas and chai tea. Our other secret weapon was Peptobismol tablets. Had between one and 3 a day. Brilliant!

    Loving the pics and food info from Japan, and the new pond. I got back from India last night. We went round Rajasthan for 2 weeks. My first time in India. I loved it, and have developed a taste for masala chai. I've never been a tea drinker in my life! I like this picture because it's colourful. I mostly took photos without people in, which is a shame! OH has some. I'll have to go back and take some more! x

    My first granny square

    Finished my second square. I'm happier with it. It's going to take me a long time to make a blanket at this rate! x x

    My first granny square

    Hi all, thanks for nice comments about first square. I have started the second and I am writing the steps down. it's the changes between "rounds" that I'm not sure about. I could probably do Christmas swap, maybe not crochet though! x x

    My first granny square

    Maybe I should use a smaller hook? I also struggled to get the hook through, so loosened it off to compensate. Don't give up Grandmashazzie! x x

    My first granny square

    I did really struggle with tension. Should I be aiming for the whole thing to be tighter? x

    My first granny square

    Hi, Popped on to the forum to share this. Everything has changed! I can't find the craft section! How are you all doing? Anyway, my very first granny square. Lots of mistakes. Would you unravel and start again, or accept that it will blend in and not be noticed in a blanket? Any tips for future squares? Love, Cathryn x

    Hello, sorry to hear this. I can't recall Trish, but I'm always saddened to hear of a loss in our community. I log on infrequently and it seems every time I do there is some sad news x
