The Holidays are coming....

Yes, I am feeling quite Christmassy, I am sat here wearing my PJ's and a Santa's hat.
I only want to do Christmassy things, so I am attempting some mini snowmen.... yes well a few more attempts needed I think.

Christmas tree is up, a few bits here and there, I cannot find all my X-stitch ornaments, I know they are here somewhere but my mind is blank on where they are!

Just in case I don't post before Christmas, Have a good one xx

Currently on the hook

I have these in my basket next to my sofa, I do have circular in there but haven't got any further as of yet. It will be a foot pouffe. But it does cause the hands to hurt doing it.

I had been looking after 5 kittens for the past couple months. They went to Cats Protection today and I am a little bit sad. I will miss their snuggles and little motorboat purrs. But they will have wonderful pets. I just hope they are not waiting too long.

I have a finish!
I had run out of this wool which is from B&M and my local store had also run out of this colour, but my lovely friend Ann bought some for me at her local store. Isn't she an Angel xx

The design is on Ravelry , it is a Scoodie, By Melissa Grice the design does have ears but I decided not to do them

I love receiving packages through the post

But these had me stumped as to what they were, I normally can tell what they are but these. I will let you see for yourself.

I just love how they vacuum packed them, I had no idea what they were until I opened the packages

A lovely weekend!

Saturday was the Needlecraft Haven meet up in Nuneaton which is organised by Clare.
 We had a special guest from the USA, and some of us stitched a coaster for her to remind her of her trip to the UK, I stitched a sheep.
Yes I stitched!
I crocheted for most of the time.
 This is for a xmas wreath I am hoping to get finished for Xmas.
 I didn't realise that I had only taken the one project with me, so I nipped to Wilkos and got some different wool and started a C2C Blanket.
I bought some fabric today, as I went to the Old Dalby Crafters group, I have missed attending there every month due to work. It has been lovely catching up with everyone.
I have finished the C2C Scarf, here is my Cat Bella Modelling it.

Hooded Scarf

I know I have only just posted, but wanted to share my current project I am doing, My version of this Hooded Scarf by Melissa Grice
I am not sure if I am adding the ears or not though.

 But this chunky wool I bought from B&M is just lovely, I have also bought some in blue and the last two pink ones.

On a different note...
I have to say as I am getting older I really don't like fireworks anymore!

I'm back

I hope everyone is okay, and keeping warm.
I have just got back from Cyprus I actually did some Crochet, also a tiny bit of stitching which I can't share, sorry.
But here is the Crochet, I did most on the flight, as it was too warm to do out there.
Andy did get a photo of me crocheting but I won't scare you as I was in my swimsuit. xx
I did last night start a new project, I must really finish the ones I have already, but there is so much I want to do.
