We went to Cotehele today which is on the Tamar, to see the Hand Made Christmas garland which festoons the main hall of this Tudor National Trust property. It was beautiful, and amazing to think that all the thousands of flowers are grown on the estate, and it takes months of planning and making to create this Christmas floral display. The day was cold, and softly foggy and gave everywhere a magical and other-worldly feel. I loved it!
I have been overwhelmed by the likes, shares, pists, comments etc for both the Advent CAL and the 12 days of Christmas Giveaway.
Here’s the CAL on friday in Porthleven, when I met up with my dear friend Annabel for coffee and a chat, and crochet of course! Her dog Indie was there to lend a paw if we got stuck!
The 12 days of Christmas will be drawn on Wednesday, and the winner will be notified so I can get the Gorgeous Gift box to you before Christmas. There are so many lovely things, you are sure to have a fabulous Hand Made Christmas! There is still time to like, share etc, every one is entered into the draw, so the more times you like, share, comment and repost the more chances you have to win. Good Luck!
Last Posting for Christmas will be Next Thursday, 22/12/16, First Class.
Very Best wishes,
