First up, my Celtic Christmas Bauble published in the newest edition of the Fat Quarterly
In between stops on our recent cruise I took advantage of the classes held on At Sea days to try my hand at another New to Me activity - needlepoint.
If you have made any Christmas gifts or home dec items this month don't forget to link them up to this month's link party over at Rose & Dahlia where Joanne shares her brilliant tutorial for a Christmas Gift Wrap sack!
Wallsend Hall Regular readers of this blog will know that I am partial to an Afternoon Tea or two, so I was delighted when I was given a voucher for Afternoon Tea at the Hall. I didn't realise until I got there that this was not for your standard, run of the mill Afternoon Tea but was, in fact, for a Northumbrian Afternoon Tea.
The Northumbrian Tea is a more savoury affair than your regular tea as it includes such local delights as Ham and Pease pudding croquettes, Craster crab pate, mini Pan Haggerty pies and Lindisfarne Mead jelly. It was delicious! It was my first ever Northumbrian Afternoon Tea but I have a feeling that it won't be my last :)
My final New to Me is yet another New to Me city, this time in Germany.
My annual Christmas Market trip with my daughters-in-law took us to Aachen in Germany, which as you can see was a wonderful setting for a Christmas market.
So that's my New to Me this month, now it is your turn to share all the fascinating things that you have been up to in November. As ever please help to spread the word by linking back to this post in your post and/or adding the blog button to your sidebar.
The link will remain open until 23.59GMT on November 30th, so you have plenty of time to try something new and link up and join the party :)
