Last Minute Bunting

I'm going to admit something, inspired by A Hell of a Woman's blog, I'm trying my own challenge. Basically I'm trying to post for every day of the advent calendar. Every year I mean to make a fabric calendar for my children and this year, as always, I haven't managed it. So this is my advent calendar this year.

So far we've had spiced apple chutney and ginger biscuits, and today was more frantic activity ahead of tomorrow's Christmas Fayre. I baked and iced a marmalade cake and some Christmas cupcakes and of course decided that what my stall was missing was some festive bunting.

This was the opportunity to get the pinking shears out, which is always a good thing. The triangular flags are zig-zagged stitched onto some simple woven tape. Another trip to the Nylon Shop yielded some lovely festive fabric.

Tomorrow morning I'll be busy getting everything ready for the Fayre. Lists will be made... Wish me luck and I'll try and keep up the challenge by posting when the dust has settled tomorrow evening.


  1. V nice! Good challenge too. Brave woman!

  2. Am right behind you! Good luck and welldone so far xx

  3. Well I've managed three in a row, just twenty-one more days to go...
