Christmas is coming!

For my birthday last week I got a delightful book written by two men, Arne and Carlos. It has 55 christmas balls which are all beautiful!!. I think my first one will be a snowman!!! The only thing was the lovely wool which they used in the book wasn't stocked in the U.K!! Had to call on America! I bought some 100% wool batting for stuffing which they suggested and has just arrived. So soft! I also got the lovely Dale of Norway "Miela" wool in cherry red and Off white and petrol blue. I hope they arrive on Monday! Will update you when it arrives! I was also going to get a silver and gold but could not find them. I will have another look on the Internet but might have to have it from America!!!!!

Christmas stocking!!!!!

Hi!
Yesterday went round to our local sewing and knitting shop were I bought a lovely pattern for a stocking made with Millamia wool. I have already done tons as is it such a nice project to do in front of the t.v. Lovely wool which was much cheaper than I expected it to be. Only around £5!! It might even be nicer than some rowan wools!!I am making the stocking on the far left!! I wonder what it will look like when it is finished! Cannot wait till Christmas now!!

Hi
Hope you are all well!!
We have been in Japan for 10 days and got some really nice material I'm going to make a cushion out of! ( I got one metre of it.)

It was a really nice shop with lots of lovely things in. Come back soon to check out how the cushions turn out.

Have a great rest of your weekend
