I recently bought" Christmas Crafting In No Time" by Clare Youngs...
... and liked it so much I have since bought another copy to offer as a giveaway gift.
I'll also include a bar of my favourite chocolate.

It is a lovely book, full of wonderful craft ideas just perfect for Christmas. When it arrived I was surprised at how thick it was - 176 pages - lots to keep you inspired. Here are just a few pages to tempt you...
I've already had a go at the owls:-
I'll be making more as they're to be donated to forthcoming school & nursery Christmas Fairs.
So far I like the purple one best. I got the eye beads from ebay (here's a link)
I also had my first attempt at quilling. More fiddly than I expected but I think I was trying to make my spirals too loose.
I finally managed to clear my desk so I could "arrange" my Christmas crafting materials on it. Now that I'm starting to gear up for the Christmas Fairs there's no time to finish off the crochet blanket...
...last seen here chasing the cat. It's the one furthest away, some of those pesky ends can be spotted trailing from it.
By the way (as they say) I bought both copies of the books from The Book People (here). They also have the KirstieAllsop Craft book which I'd browsed in TK Maxx (too expensive at £12), noticed on Amazon (still a little pricey at £10) then bought from The Book People for £6.99. It's the most I'd pay for it, it seems a nice book (have only really flicked through it so far) but contains too many photos of the contibutors for my liking.
