Morning all! (She said, assuming there might actually be someone reading this!)
Before I go any further I feel I ought to say HURRAH, HUZZAH AND WOOPPEEE DOOO DAAAAH! to Helen who gave birth last week to baby boy number two. I have attempted to find your house on two separate occasions to try and drop off a card but have so far failed miserably! I don't know why I'm failing to find it given that I have, before now, found it with no problems! Clearly baby brain has kicked up a gear! Oh dear at this rate I will be a jabbering mess before The Monkey has his next birthday!
So this weekend was a bank holiday and despite having to work on Saturday The Monkey and I were busy being creative on Sunday and Monday. Sadly no work done on the quilt...it's very tricky to do sewing with pins and scissors with such a keen little helper wanting to be so hands-on.
The Monkey created a beautiful painting for Granny (or Ga-Ga as he likes to call her), and I had a burst of forward thinking and decided to make some Christmas decorations! I know, I know it's FAR too early to be thinking about it but I do have good reason. The shop that sold so many of my lovely knitted scarves last year is interested in selling my baubles (oo-er-mrs!) so I thought I should make a nice set to take in for them to approve. I spent every spare minute I had, knitting the scarves on the run up to Christmas last year because (and I shouldn't complain) they were selling faster than I could make them. This year I want to get everything made early so I can just 'relax' into Christmas 2010.(Who am I kidding?!).
You can't really tell what size these are from the photo. They just about fit in your hand...about 12-13cm across.
