CAL progress shots….


It’s getting bigger, now to wait a few more hours till the next pattern instalment is available.I’m thinking to repeat these rows a second time because I’m using 4ply and not the 8ply stated in the requirements list I’ll need to add more to the length like I’ve done with the width by adding more chain at the beginning of the pattern to make it wider…….so loving how this blanket is turning out and I’m having lots of fun with all the different stitches Smile

Friends having Fun Swaps: Felt project


My swap partner for this months swap was Shez and I was utterly spoilt by her!! Shez knows I love Christmas so my felt swap items reflected this…..two fig ’n berry Christmas patterns, I can’t wait to start working on theseSmile


three gorgeous felt ornaments…can’t wait to hang these beauties on my tree this year, not long to wait now! ( sorry to be reminding those who are in denial )


And last but not least a beautiful felt needle book, I must confess when I saw this on Shez’s blog I was quite envious of the recipient who would be getting this but now I don’t have to as it’s mine all mine! LOL.


OOops I nearly forgot to show you what I made and sent to Shez lol, A small felt table mat with appliqued flowers, a set of tea towels as I know how much Shez loves decorating them, a Cottage Garden thread called Rosalie and a yummy smelling candle from Dusk,  Shez and I are trying not to send nibble/choc’s to each other and I know she loves her candles as much as I do SmileThanks Shez for another fantastic swap and now I need to get the whip cracking on a couple of more swaps that need to be finished by November.
