The christmas craft market in Le Dorat was on yesterday. OH decided that he could resist going, so I went on my own. There were a lot more outside stalls this year, but then it was very wet last year. There was a wonderful cheese stall run a man called Adrian. He has mainly English handmade cheeses that are absolutely divine. There was a sausage stall, I bought Ian some Cumberland and Lincolnshire sausages. He had the Cumberland for dinner last night and said not to bother getting them again as he prefers the French Toulouse sausages - apparantly they have much more meat in them. Penny had a stall there which looked fabulous, lots of lovely treasures on it, her friend Sandra had a stall next door with some wonderful handmade cards.
When I got home I spent a lovely afternoon crocheting some little christmas tree bags. You put a Ferrero Rocher chocolate in them and hang them on the tree - if I bother with a tree this year, never have I felt so un-christmassy. The pattern is Pennys, and once you get into the swing of them they are suprisingly easy, I managed to make 2 of them during the afternoon.
These are my little bags. The 2 white ones are white wool with a silver thread running through it, the blue one are in a fine metallic yarn. I am really please with them.
