Santa Parade

Friday night was the night Ardrossan had their Santa parade through part of the town and down to the civic centre.   I didnt manage to get so many pictures of the parade, camera was being a bit iffy at that point.

These are the lovely trees outside the Civic Centre before and after they turned on the lights.  There is a manger as well and various lights up and down the street.  

This is the PIE Arts Glee Club performing some of their much practised Christmas specials. They really were a delight. So much hard work goes into their performances and they are getting so confident. The Christmas Fayre was really busy by the time they went on stage.  My wee tootsie Jessica is up there too singing her wee heart out.

This is a hair band I bought from the Impact Arts stall. They were selling lots of up cycled goods and this hairband was so my kind of thing.  The products they were selling really were beautiful and the kids that made them were selling them as well.  I've attached a link if you want to  Find out more about impact arts

One Thursday in December

Time for Christmassy socks.

The hills of Arran, looking a bit snowy and cold.

Some mistletoe and wine. Bit heavier on the wine front but hey! It was my night off when this was taken.

Ive been having quite a productive few weeks project wise.  Ive been working on a wee bit of this  

 This was a baby blanket for my cousins wee baby boy.  Its all finished now and keeping him warm.  I forgot to get a final picture before it went over to him.

  This is a pennant / bunting style  decoration ive made.  I first saw it in Attic 24 and really wanted to make it such is my love of making bunting.  It really didn't take me that long and instead of felt for the letters I used some of my vast selection of buttons.  Any excuse for getting my glue gun out.

Now for my granny square blanket, which is in fact for my own granny.  I wish I had tied in my ends as I went along.  Ive spent ages tying them all in over the last week and scunnered myself with them slightly.  The pattern came from Heathers blog Little Tin Bird

I have been taking a different route on my doggie walks in the morning due to having access to a car that can accommodate a dog in the boot.  All the following pictures are from Cannonhill, Ardrossan in the morning.  All taken at the same time but from different parts of the hill.

 Across from Ardrossan right the way over to the Apollo in Saltcoats
 The windfarm
Arran ferry coming in, a wee bit late I think that day. 

The Castle.  Its currently under going Heritage work.  My dad had been going to the meetings about it.  Its a really lovely old castle and lovely to walk around.  You can see it from a lot of places in Ardrossan and Saltcoats.  The Castle, the high flats and the wind farm, the three landmarks I suppose.
