It's the most wonderful time of the year

This morning I went to the cinema to see the new Harry Potter film - The Deathly Hallows (part one). It's become something of a marking of the Christmas season for me - as the films always come out just before Christmas.
The film itself was quite dark and very bleak at times, but despite this (and the running commentary from the kids that were sitting next to us) I really enjoyed it. It's very well made, well shot, gritty and just more grown up - natural evolution I suppose. I'm really looking forward to the next part...

Other things marking the Christmas season for me is the fairs I attend at this time of year.  I'm busy making and stocking piling my softies and accessories.
I have a pile if half made monsters on the desk here next to me and have stockings hanging up all around the room:

If you've been doing some Christmas making it would be great to see your pics in the handmade Christmas flickr group, so please do add them. In fact, if you just want a bit of festive cheer then click the link and have a look at all the handmade loveliness.

We saw HP on Saturday - as luck would have it it came out just in time for Monster's birthday. I thought it was great, very very dark indeed but so well done. Of course, I now need to go and read the book again to help me make sense of it all!

Love those Christmas stockings. I hope your fairs are going well. I'm off to drool over the handmade Christmas photos :o)

I did make a stocking, but it is a bit slap dash and not quite as lovely as yours!
