Manic November

It has been a looooong time since my last post and I have been manically busy with making Xmas presents. Especially since I have quite spontaneously decided to fly over to Germany for my mum's 50th birthday on 5th December. She is only having a small thing at home as the real big party will happen next March in conjunction with my 29th birthday, but it is a big event after all. You only turn 50 once, right? And as I haven't been over for my mum's birthday in the last 8 years, I really wanted to be there this time.

The plan is to take all presents with me to save on postage and as I am only going for a week I don't need as many clothes for me and Lucy. Therefore I have been busy busy busy. I also didn't feel quite ready so far to share these handmade presents with you as I didn't want anybody to see anything. But I also don't want to put them on here after Xmas either.

So, here are a few of my favourite things:

a crochet hook+accessories wrap

potholders for my granny

scarf galore- for several people...

Peony corsage for my MIL

I can't believe how much work this all took. When I decided to make as many presents myself this year as possible I didn't realise how much it would take. I just hope they will all know to appreciate it...

P.S: Please excuse the quality of the photographs. The light here is very poor at the moment.
