Update, Bella and My Christmas Wish To You..

Hello friends
That's it - only one more sleep!
Yesterday I managed to grab some photos of the new studio/shop -
this is the insulation going up in the kitchen.
 The plasterboard up in my craft room.
 And a wet plastered ceiling in the shop/studio.
I am wishing for a sudden heatwave to dry everything out.  There is nothing I can do
but wait - I'm not very good at that!  Plastering is a messy business and I'm itching to start cleaning
to get ready for painting.
Anyway enough of that...back to Christmas!
To keep today's blog post festive I asked Bella to pose for a nice Christmas photo 
but she sort of looks a little grumpy - I'm thinking if she could talk she would be saying:
"Take this ridiculous Santa coat off!"
I chose to go in search of another appropriate photograph and decided on this one. 
I bought these little tree decorations last year and today I send out this image across the blog waves....
My Christmas wish to you all is to have a truly wonderful Christmas, 
enjoy this very special time of year when everything is brighter and happier and 
may Santa put lots of crafty goodies in your stocking! 
I'm back on the 27th - just going blog awol for a couple of days as I realise everyone is very busy.
In an emergency I can be located under a pile of gift wrap, Quality Street and Twiglets..mmm heaven!
Take care dear friends.

Hi Christine
No doubt there is a present under the tree for Bella, so I think she will forgive you for making her pose.
Have a great Christmas, can't wait to visit you in your new shop.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and your beautiful blog Christine. You are an inspiration and your work is amazing. I love the birdcages and have seen one locally that I want for my dining room to hang from one of the beams. I'm waiting for the sales!!!!! Just love Bella in her coat, please give her a cuddle from me.
