I've just got so much sewing to do:
- I still need to make a m_ _ _ _ _ _ _ for Daisy
- 3 S _ _ _ _ s for Fred
- and I've no idea what to sew for Dorothy although I may adapt a G _ _ _ _ _ _ pattern to make a R _ _ _ _ _ _ _ similar to one I've seen somewhere that I can't possibly link to right now because little people have inquisitive eyes!
- and I'd really like to make a h _ _ for Mr Locket (at least you stand a chance of guessing that one!)
Firstly a little doll from this pattern for my friend Jane's 5 year old daughter because she fell in love with the Lockets' friends from the summer
and a dog - of my own design!!! (hence the wonky legs and ears) for her 2 year old daughter who promptly said "My Dog!" when she opened it!
I also managed to knit Jane some super-long wristwarmers and bought her this beautiful stitchery pattern to get her well and truly hooked!
I have been busily corrupting Jane over the last few weeks/months by getting her nearly as hooked on sewing as I am so next time I will show you the lovely eyemasks she has made for the children and some of the other lovely things she has been doing. I can't show you the eyemasks this evening as the children have naturally taken them straight up to bed!
Talking of lovely sewing, I was very lucky to receive a totally unexpected surprise in the post last week - a parcel of goodies from Maria!
Thank you so much Maria - I was so delighted to open such a lovely parcel!
And I'll leave you tonight with a rather strange photo of our rather strange (and very titchy tiny, teeny-weeny) Christmas tree because I love the shadows cast by the paper chains!
