My car is off the road, it needs quite a bit of welding work doing to it, it's an old car that belonged to my late dad so it's quite sentimental but it looks like it wont be viable to repair it.
With not being able to nip off on a whim to friends or run errands in the car this week, i seem to have had quite a bit of time with needle, thread and wool making gifts for Christmas.
The little trinket box is for a friend, she collects them and this little one has been in my stash for such a long time waiting to have it's design stitched. The notecube is a small extra stocking filler for my mum.
Crochet hook has been busy too with two doillys made for the aunts, these are so easy to make yet really nice, i'm sure they will be a hit when opened on the big day.
Yummy chocolate santas are to stuffed into these cute stockings for 2 little people and can then be hung on their Christmas tree in future years, they were very successful when i made them last year and are quick to knit up.
SIL's wish will be coming true, santa has decided she has been very good (as good as a girl can be!) and will indeed be receiving a pair of hand knitted socks. Purple is her favourite colour and this Superwash wool is knitting up really nicely, i think i might have to get a bit 'clicky happy' with the mouse button and go shopping to get some more so i can have a pair too. One sock completed, one more to go and with tonight being 'Strictly' night, i'll be knitting away again.
When the schools were closed for half term hols, my neighbour went abroad for a week to get some late sun. DH & i were looking after their 5 little kittys. One of them seems to be missing me as he is coming round every day for a cuddle and a quick bite of my boys food. He is a lovely boy and very affectionate but i really dont know how he got the name Treacle? A friend of mine made me smile when she said he wasn't a cat burgler, he was the Neighbourhood Taste Tester LOL.
I hope you all had a lovely bonfire night last night, or maybe you are celebrating tonight like a lot of local people here. There will be lots of loud bangs and whizzes but DH and i will be remaining at home keeping Mr Moe company as he really does get frightened and needs a cuddle. Have fun and enjoy, but please, stay safe!
