Petite Noël

Are you feeling Christmassy yet? I am a bit traumatised by the fact that our cooncil turned the Christmas lights on yesterday – they really get a kick out of doing this Way Too Early. But closer to home I am starting to think Christmas thoughts in preparation for this:

Petite Noël is organised by some very dynamic folk over at Dundee Jamboree, and I’m going to be taking part with a stall of my handwoven scarves, bags, mug rugs and more — so if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, do please call in and say hello. I am currently planning some Christmas cards as well, hence the seasonal thoughts, which are actually quite warming in this dreich November weather.

My progress in all things is still extremely slow. I feel great sympathy for the poor little ligament cells in my foot, who are presumably beavering away trying to get themselves back in touch with the bone they used to call home. Every time I knock my foot or twist it or put too much weight on it, I can hear their howls of pain and wonder whether I have just undone their day’s work. Rather like unweaving, really, and having it all to reweave again tomorrow…

    Would love to be there to see the craft fair. Sounds like you really, really wrecked that foot. Take care!

    Ummm, just so I’m not going senior all the way, there is no picture of the event in this blog, right?

    Guess who got so caught up in the whole thing that she forgot to take pictures?

    But you can see photos on the Dundee Jamboree blog here. Scroll down to the sixth picture and the man in the kilt is standing in front of my wee stand. The blurry figure in the red cardigan behind the stall is Stuart – I am out of sight at the end!
