A first December

When my niece was born earlier this year I stitched a quilt to welcome her into the world and to keep her cosy for years to come. I firmly believe that the best way to celebrate milestones is with a handmade present, so for her first Christmas I have made her an advent calendar similar to the one that I made for Matt a couple of years ago. I decided to make a festive pudding, complete with squishy holly and berries and lovely big currants. I hope that she will look forward to the first of December every year when her pudding will reappear, filled with chocolate.
