It's not that I haven't been working Christmas the last couple of weeks, I have. I've also been super busy getting Mum organised and settled and working with my brother to make the wisest choices for her ongoing care, and that has been exhausting.
I rescued some boxes from the kitchen and a brown paper shopping bag to be made over into gift wrapping. I also saved the ribbon and bow from a beautiful gift I was given. They're gold, and we all know gold can be used for any occasion so recycling them into "new" embellishments make sense.
While I was in a creative mood I've made some jam labels too. Sticking with the French provincial theme, they're black on white in a pretty cursive font. I'm using labels I bought at a $2 shop and they seem to be sticking to jars without a problem.
Two dishcloths have been added to the present box and I've started a baby blanket, using wool from Mum's stash. It's a simple square in white, pink, lemon, blue and mauve.
Here's the video
