|Never told old to enjoy filling an advent calendar!|
This year I made another Advent calendar from this Cool Yule Makower panel which I think is just the sweetest. I do love these panels, though this one wasn't printed terribly straight and drove me crazy when trying to finish it off well. This calendar is actually for use in 2015 which I know sounds a bit crazy, so let me explain.
Every year my aunt hosts a huge boxing day gathering of the family. My mum and she are from a family of nine children so, as a clan we can be quite a considerable number to feed each year. My contribution is usually a chocolate cake which is nowhere near enough but my lovely aunt insists that's all I should bring. So, each year I like to take another little something as a thank you gift to her for taking such good care of us.
Now, if you're still with me, this aunt is the grandmother of my cousin's baby who was born last year and will be grandmother to his baby brother/sister this year (for whom either the wonky stars quilt or the pixellated heart quilt are in waiting). So, given that she will have two grandchildren visiting and celebrating Christmas with her next year, this calendar is for her to hang in her house so she can share the fun with both of them. Follow that? I hope it's a good idea and just in case not, there's a pretty fragranced gift headed her way too!!
