FNSI and where have I been?

Many thanks to Wendy at Sugarlane Designs for all the work she has put into FNSI over the year. Last night was our final get together for 2015 so do pop over to Wendy's to see what everyone got up to.
As we are in UK I was knitting as we watched the TV and made good progress on this sock.

I've got the complicated bit to do next!

We have been in the UK a week now so if I have not been to visit you lately then that is why - we seem to have been busy all week Christmas shopping and visiting friends.
The weather here is incredibly mild - we saw daffodils flowering the other day - but also mostly grey and damp. However it has been lovely to see the Somerset countryside again with two trips across the levels to Street and to Wells. The levels on a misty morning are one of my favourite memories from when I worked in Street. The Farmers market in Wells is always a treat - just a shame that we can not indulge in all the lovely foods on offer during our stay.
Yesterday we went to the south coast - to Seaton where the sea front was very blustery but in the town all was calm. Found a lovely little craft shop and picked up some bargain Christmas ribbons which will feature in next years Christmas makes.

Well I must get on with wrapping Christmas presents this morning - it's wet and windy outside so an indoor job is perfect.

Wishing all my lovely readers a Very Happy Christmas and a Healthy, Peaceful and Stitchy 2016.

The weather is the same here in Sussex Lin! Josh is outside playing in shorts and Hubby has mown the lawn, a first for December! I love Somerset and Devon. We holidayed there every year as children. We would leave home at 4 am and get to Seaton Hole at about 8 am where we met my Aunty and would fried breakfast on the gas camping stove. Us cousins played for a few hours before finding our holiday cottage. It was my favourite town to buy gifts :-) Have an amazing time. xx

Hope you continue to have a lovely time in England. It was even mentioned on the news here how mild the weather was - we have friends visiting England for 6 weeks and they are a bit sad it won't be a white Christmas. Have a great day on the 25th.

The weather in the UK sounds a lot like what we experienced in Newfoundland when we were there at the beginning of December, except that we had a bit of snow there as well. I guess any place that is coastal will have the damp and wind. I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you are looking forward to a happy new year.

I hope your pretty blue knitting is coming along. Are you back home or still in the UK? It was wet and rainy here all through Christmas week, too! But it was warm and now it's cold, even though we're seeing sun. It sounds like you had a wonderful time, and bargain ribbons - I look forward to seeing what you do with them - unless you mean Christmas wrapping ribbons. =)

You're knitting is looking good-time to turn the heel? Handknit socks are the best!! It sounds like you had a wonderful visit with good food and plenty of visiting.
Happy sewing!
