Just in case you are not really in the Christmas swing I thought I'd share a couple of pics from a day out in Rochester yesterday. For those not in the know, Rochester has strong ties to Charles Dickens and every year they have a couple of events, one early in the year (The Sweeps festival) and then at Christmas they have a Dickensian Christmas with lots of character's wandering the streets, a Christmas Market, craft market, parades during the day and ending off with a lamp-lit parade and carols below the castle. Mulled wine and warm mince pies abound and lots of Christmas cheer.
Today, I've been locked in my crafty world working on a book and a trio of chests so hopefully they'll be finished soon to share. Until then I hope you have a great afternoon and evening.
