I have had a busy couple of weeks.
 Fun but busy.
I finally finished and posted my Modern Christmas table runner swap. I have seen the pictures on Flickr and it has arrived safe and sound in it's new home in the Czech Republic. I'm now sitting and eagerly awaiting my table runner.

On Saturday I went to the Festival of the Nativity at my friends church. It was amazing. There were 101 nativities from all over the world. There was even one from Bethlehem. Unfortunatly I didn't get a photo of that one.
Here are some of my favourite Nativities.
  This is one I would really like to have a go at making.
This knitted one was on lone from St Coleman's Kirk.
 These amazing sewn pieces were made by my friend Vikki and a lovely American lady whose name escapes me.
This is another one of Vikki's.
 How cute is this one.
I love this. It is so adorable.

 Here is the warm welcome we were greeted with, and the lovely thing was , the bairns got to take home a balloon at the end.

We decorated biscuits.I think the grown-ups had as much fun as the bairns.

 This is my Mary biscuit.

   Icing and coconut.
It tasted much better than it looked. Vikki got the silver balls espeshally for me

In the afternoon I went to an ATC class with Jennie Atkinson. It was amazing. I will be hosting an ATC swap here in Shetland in the new year. I would also like to join in with an on line ATC swap but I haven't found one yet, If you know of a good active on line swap could you let me know ?

Here's looking forward to another good week.
