I have been totally waylaid by my entries for the Holiday Softie Awards http://softiescentral.typepad.com/blog/. All the entries are absolutely stunning, I just marvel at the creativity of people. The whole thing has got me feeling all Christmasy, and the nights really feel like they are drawing in.
Tonight we went for a walk down the Royal Mile (The street that links Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace) and in the soft night it could easily have been a couple of hundred years ago. We then headed into Arthur's seat and just gloried in the night air. Sometimes the world still seems magical.
and a little robin
All this means I have neglected the Instant Gratification Crochet page... I am a very bad girl. The good news is that the Robin will be included in the set. I am writing up the patterns and they should be on-line in the next couple of days. So keep an eye out!
