December December full of Christmas Cheer

The moon is full and there is a nip in the air that can't be ignored. The wonderful smell of wood smoke fills the senses as all the fires start to be lit. The first of December is near.Busy little fingers are making, baking, sewing, knitting and getting busy with a hook, my days play along to the hum of my sewing machine. Yes its that time when this Mommy gets too busy to blog as I am so busy making for the big day. Wanted to pop in and say hello and wish you a Happy December. A lot is going on in the Suzie Sews household, some good and some not so good, but presents and decorations are busy underway, my calender is filling up by the hour, school concerts, appointments and all things BUSY!!! Its the time of year when the house comes alive, people popping in to say hello and being warmed by a glass of mulled wine.

The school fair has been and gone is a flurry of baking a few dozen cakes, its the first time of not being able to help on the day. I have to admit it was nice to go along and support the event with my children, especially meeting Santa.
By the end of each day, the children are asleep, I have plans to settle in my sewing room or stand over my stove to make some more tasty money saving treats...somehow though I only seem to manage to curl up on the sofa in front of the fire with a warming class of rich red wine ...dreaming of all things cosy.

December cheer to you too! I feel like I'm at the beginning of the race and hearing 'let the games begin'. Christmastime is my favorite time of year but it does involve a flurry of activity. Each Christmas season I try to slow down a bit and take it all in. I haven't been overly successful in the past but I'll try again this year.

Hi there, I love your new banner photo. I can't believe it's December. That Christmas feeling hasn't started yet for me, although I do like the colder rathter than wetter weather at this time of year - it's definitely more seasonal today. I agree, it's so lovely to cosy up in front of the fire at this time of year - I need to do it more often! Happy December to you all. Teresa x

Love that photo at the top - I could just walk right in and snuggle on the sofa with that offered mulled wine! Happy sewing, knitting, crocheting if you manage to get any done!
love
Caroline

That you for this cup of good cheer, Suze... During the run-up to Christmas, it's important to not let the to-do lists bog us down... there's so much to enjoy so sneaking all the fun we can in between it all makes the season brighter. Happy Advent to you & yours :o) ((HUGS))
