Miranda’s Advent Calendar

In rambling on on November 30, 2007

Pattern at Hobbycraft – though I accidentally ignored it in certain strategic places, it probably would have been better if I paid attention! (Also, we’ll forget about the bit where I threw the sewing machine across the room! Stupid thread tangling machine!)

I’m a bit worried about filling 24 pockets for the next n years, but I guess I can always just resort to the all chocolates, all the time plan if need be.

I’d like a star for the top like in the patten, but my sewing wasn’t going to work on that one, so am waiting for more inspiration.

For the record this year she’s got 5 Happyland people & animals, 3 cars, 3 Batman model bits, a xmas dec (scheduled for the day we put the tree up), 2 packs of Thomas the Tank Engine stickers, a pack of xmas snap cards (in the big pot pocket for the 24th), a bouncy ball, and the remaining 8 are bits of woolies pick’n'mix sweets. It all came in at about £15, which I didn’t think was too bad really! (And I’ve got some bits left over for her stocking too.)

I just hope she gets her head round the “one a day” thing!

lol. This had me literally laughing out loud. (That’s using literally to mean literally, not the more commonly used sense where it somehow means "not quite literally".)
