Day 328 - Sunday 23rd November

"A mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.” - Plutarch (46-137), historian, biographer, essayist

What’s filling your mind today?

I am determined to get Zoë really into Christmas this year. I have bought the Polar Express DVD to watch with her and I have made a matchbox advent calendar. However I saw a fabric advent calendar and I knew I just had to make her one.
I haven’t used a sewing machine for about 10 years, but I have managed to make the calendar – well almost, it is not quite finished yet. The stitching is a bit wonky but I like to think of it as “rustic” – as long as it doesn’t fall apart when I put goodies in it.
