Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas? I suppose in a way it is. I mean, it’s not like we’ve yet reached Easter, and I do rather object to shops starting the Christmas season in the summer.
Except that when you’re lovingly handcrafting Christmassy items – gifts, decorations, and so forth – you do need to start thinking about them all early, so you have enough time to complete them.
And when you start planning barely six weeks before the deadline, and you know, Life, you probably won”t finish in time. Like the Advent Calendar I began last November, and failed to finish in time for Advent.
So I’ve started it up again. One patch at a time…
