Half A Pound of Tuppenny Rice… and a few socks

IMG_2829_w

I’m still in making mode for the church Christmas Fayre… and inspired by yet another Facebook shared video, I have three snowmen families gracing my studio table, one of which has chosen this as their official Christmas card. Nobody mentioned that sports socks are now rarely just white, seemingly requiring colour splashes to be able to match them up when mixed in the gym bag. Good old George at Asda came up trumps though 🙂

And prices have gone up since rice was tuppenny… with each family weighing in at 1333g of Basics rice, that’s more like 3lbs of rice for £1. Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

And the pompoms, despite a wonderful gizmo to help, still took an hour to make and sew on. I think it was worth it though for the finishing sparkling touch.

  1. I love your snowman family Neil, and your key rings yesterday. The sale will be fantastic with all of your creations!

  2. Happy New Year, just seen your blog. My daughter brought home a snowman similar to yours. She made it at Cubs no pom pom though.
