Mollie Makes Christmas

I know it's only October, and I know that I've been talking pumpkins lately, but did you know that Mollie Makes magazine has a new Christmas book out today in the UK? They do! I haven't seen it all yet, but I'm really, really excited about it! The magazine has me head over heals, so I can only imagine what the book will do to me...

Oh, and guess what? I've got two projects in the book! Truth be told, when they asked me to make something for the book, I just as excited about knowing in advance that there would be such a book as I was at being included! (Not to mention, it gave me a good excuse to listen to some Sufjan Christmas music in the spring...) Here's a peek at one of my projects:

  139. My favourite thing about Christmas is the food. I know I shouldn't say that - the answer should be family :) But, it's the only time of year we eat roast turkey and I adore it. I wish I lived in the US so we could have it at Thanksgiving too, but in Australia we don't celebrate that holiday.
