yesterday, we had christmas drinks at hélène and rich's flat. t'was a super evening with plenty of mulled wine and mince pies for everyone. and seeing as since we've left uni we dont get to see so much of each other, it was extra-nice to get everyone back together in one room again.
what with it being christmas an' all, i decided to make a stocking for everyone. i made up a basic pattern and filled them up with christmassy treats: a tree decoration, a candy cane, a chocolate santa lolly, and of course some chocolate money! i made up some gift tags and braided some brown string to finish them off, and tadaaa! job done! i think theyre pretty cool and rustic looking. i can imagine them hanging from a fire place in a nice cosy log cabin in the snow somewhere... :o)
