There are several reasons for this, I have been busy knitting Christmas presents for friends and family and I do not think it would be right to post them before the person has received them. But the main reason I have not been sharing my work with you is because I am still having laptop problems. The latest in a long line of problems is that the media card reader stopped working so I have been unable to load any of the photographs from my camera. However, I have treated myself to an early Christmas present and bought a new laptop. I have not quite worked out all of the functions yet but I have worked out enough to be able to load and edit photographs.
I have a considerable backlog of photographs and, as all crafters know, this is a very busy time of year, but I shall try to write at least one post a day for the next month and to start this roller coaster, this is the first of two posts today.
Regular visitors will recall that every year I exchange Advent Calenders with my best friend, we have been doing this for many years now and our calenders have become a little out of the ordinary, for instance they contain a small gift for every day for the whole of the month of December and, because I can never find very small items, none of those calendars with tiny drawers for me, my container has to be a little larger than the norm.
For the last couple of years I have made a padded box to put my gifts in. (You can find the 2015 box by clicking here and the 2016 box by clicking here.) I have made each box slightly smaller than the previous one so they can be ether stacked or nested.
