So, another week has passed and we are creeping closer to the big day. My 'to do' rail keeps filling and getting in the way of the seasonal preparations so every spare minute I seem to be playing catch up.
Here you can see the beginnings of my next batch of Christmas cards. I've used bond a web to attach Sari silk ribbons onto a base fabric and will work on this with machine embroidery etc before cutting it up and embellishing it further to decorate some cards with. Watch this space as they say.
This is the latest little knittie I've made with some wool M bought for me to knit for Sam. It's knit up a bit small so not sure whether it will fit but if not one of her best friends had a little boy on Sunday so it will go to a good home. :-) ....welcome to the world little Oliver.
Jo[zart]....take note of the fab buttons....we all love them. Thanks so much x
I treated myself to a 'comic' last weekend for being a good girl and just know the knitters out there will love it if you have littlies like mine to knit for. It's the Woman's weekly special collectible series and it has some real favourites in it to knit/crochet such as Angelina Ballerina, Peppa Pig and Raa Raa the noisy lion and in total it has 39 great pattern in it so I felt it was well worth the £9.95 I paid for it. I am trying to make a few special knitties as Christmas pressies. [wonder if you can guess which ones I'm knitting?....I won't share then til after the big day but will take some pics].
Another stocking in the making. I'm taking orders now :-) Sooooooooo many new babies during this year in my life.
I have two little elves who are desperate to decorate our Christmas tree.....Amy has always loved doing the tree and this year she has two little helpers [Stephen will prob sleep through it...he's such a good baby]. It was far too soon to bring a real tree into the house so this year we have treated ourselves to an artificial one and here is is waiting for the elves to arrive :-)
So folks, that's it from me today. My heaving 'to do' rail is calling me to clear it [....again!] so I shall pop over to see what you've been up to in my coffee breaks....if I can fit one in :-) Please leave me a little hello comment before you pop over to join in the WOYWW fun at Julia's blog and here's hoping you all have a really great week.
