Happy Christmas Meerkats (and their friends!)

Nobody who reads my blog can have failed to notice the Meerkat World Tour.

They started making their preparations way back at the beginning of November. Since then we've been in the local paper and video'd for the local paper website!

Since then it's been one adventure after another: Treasure visited Cute Designs and then to Israel to meet Arosha and Inbaliya and celebrated Hanukkah with SpringDesigns

Meqanwhile, Etta went straight to North Carolina with MidnightCoiler and then spent Thanksgiving with CrazyDaisesDesigns. After Thanksgiving she went to New York to attend the "one of a kind show" with GocksFrocks (where apparently she earned herself a tutu!)and is now with ZaftigDelights, looking forward to Christmas.

So why have I chosen this video? It's something we used to listen to a lot when my children were small, so it's nostalgic - and you don't need much of an excuse to be nostalgic this time of year!

But also - it's all about pulling together. I have been more touched than I can say by the way my friends from ETTEAM have joined with me in this Meerkat World Tour - I certainly couldn't have done it by myself! Thanks for all the fun photos, the blog posts, the facebook messages and of course the souvenirs the meerkats have taken away with them. They still have a lot of visits to make before the final giveaways on our Etteam blog, so if you're not yet a facebook fan - join us now! May this Christmas time bring you all you deserve! xxx

Oh Nifty H. That video is so wonderful. Huzzah to you, for you, with you. So enjoying the meerkat tour, thanks to YOU for creating the knitted meerkats and for having the courage to send them out. With best wishes and kind regards, Jane

Heather, Etta and I having so much fun together! Thanks for allowing her to spend the holidays so far away from home. She loves the warm sunny weather in San Diego, and has also discovered she really likes Oatmeal cranberry cookies!

Happy Holidays!

Hope you had a great Christmas Nifty Knits.

I settled down last night with my Feb issue of Period Living Magazine and was chuffed to bits to see your lovely pin cushion featured on one of the pages - well done you! Elaine, Ellie's Treasures
