WOYWW...

Good morning blogging friends.
Another busy week has passed and we are back to the best day of the week when we all have a good snoop round lots of crafting spaces.  If you are here by chance and don't know what I mean then please pop over to Julia's blog and join in the fun.

This has been another week of family, sewing and crafting for me.  If you check out the posts below you will see I have now finished the fairy mice and little bears have now taken over my crafting time.  I made the first while teaching my son to knit and since then they have just multiplied.  They are just so cute that I can't stop knitting them.  I rarely make two of anything the same so each one is different and has their own little character.  They are only about 3" tall  :-)



This is the latest snap of the ones I've knitted and as you can see the one I am giving away as a Christmas gift to one of my followers [see post below] has lined up with the others.  I have knitted one each for my two little Granddaughters and my eldest daughter put her order in for one so I've knitted her one too...she is full up with the flu at the mo so I hope the little bear will help her get better very soon.

I still had to knit a Jesus for the knitivity so last night my knitting needles got clicking. 



Can you tell what it is yet?










It's not everyone that gets to knit pants for baby Jesus.









Here he is in his swaddling clothes sucking his thumb....how cute is that?
At least now I have the three main characters for my knitivity....the rest will come as I find the time.






The decorations are all up and I've posted most of my Christmas cards so it's just a little more present buying and then it's onto the baking and I will be all ready for family celebrations.  I will be taking some time off between Christmas and the New Year so I can relax and enjoy the festivities.  

Now before you leave please check out the post below, become a follower and leave me a comment so your name can be included in the Christmas Gift Draw.

They are so cute and so tiny! I think one of the Teddies should be a fairy Ted with wings! Lovely post as always. Take a peek on mine as I've included the caped hood I made for my grandee that you asked to see finished. I'll let you have the pattern once I've perfected it, and if you like it!

Lovely bears - but you're a fab knitter so naturally they are.....

Knitting the pants of Christ, sounds like a strange Indie hit. I trust we will get to see the completed nativity?

Love the fairy mice, are they a pattern to knit for a useless novice?
