My New Knit

I've just finished knitting this and I love it, just the thing for Autumn, although with this fabulous weather here I might have to wait a little longer to wear it. It only took me just over a week to knit it.
Wool is Sirdar Demin Ultra Chunky in shade 507 Starling which is cream with a brown and grey fleck.

More christmas LOTV

Two more cards for the christmas box, using images from LOTV, these are so handy for a quick card and don't want to buy the stamp, and at just £1 a sheet are great value.

Autumn is here.

Well I think Autumn is nearly here, there is a nip in the air, although we are still having a few sunny days. The leaves on the trees are turning to all the wonderful shades of orange red and brown.
I hade a little trip to Hobbycraft yesterday(yes again, can't stay away since the new store opened) and was inspired to buy some goodies to make this wreath. The ribbon is from my stash.

More LOTV Xmas Cards

Here's two more cards using Stamps from Lili of the Valley stamps, how cute are these, and I dug out these papers from last years Nitwits collection. Ribbon from Costco.

No time for crafting today, I'm waiting for the engineer to come to fix my washing machine, then a quick trip to Tesco and this afternoon off to pick Grace up from school, Grace fractured her arm at Gymnastics on Sat, bless her, and then dinner at my daughters house, I love not having to cook. don't get me wrong I like cooking but hate the day to day thinking up meals etc. If you ask them what would you like for dinner the answer is nearly always anything. If they made anything in Tins, Fresh or Frozen it would sell a bomb, anything for dinner every night, how much easier would life be then. supermarket shopping done in a flash.

Just wanted to share this with you if you live near a Costco get yourself some of these fabulous ribbons, I think they will sell out fast. Brian asked me if I really needed more ribbon, he just doesn't understand this need for more ribbons. Just look at all the yumminess, Red Velvet, Silver Lace, White Velvet, Red and white glitzy cord, snow ball ribbon, Red and silver velvet, snow flakes and red and white cord, and 10yds of each, for only about £15.

Tilda Snowman

Since the new hobbycraft store opened in Aylesbury I have visited at least once a week, after being deprived of a local craft store it is heaven and I'm afraid I have given the old bank card a bashing, all in the name of crafting. I bought  this Tilda book last week.
Crafting Christmas Gifts: 25 Adorable Projects Featuring Angels, Snowmen, Reindeer and Other Yuletide FavouritesAnd I just couldn't resist making this cute snowman.  He was so easy to make I'm going to make more. I added some sparkle but it doesn't really show in the photo.
