I've finished off the the last 3 ornaments for the bazaar and handed them over to one of the organisers. She was very pleased with my efforts and thinks they will all be snapped up - let's hope so.
I tried to make each of the six different, these charts are also from a very old magazine. Some of the older designs are so lovely. This time we have a felted stocking, a flat pinkeep design and a small cushion, the wording on the fabric along the bottom of the shepherds and sheep reads 'Noel' it was hard to get a good pic with the recent dull days we've been having.
Today though, the weather is the complete opposite, a crisp, cold bright and sunshiney day. I heard someone on the radio telling how many shopping days were left till Christmas, i'm sure they can't be right, i am not organised at all this year, not sure what's different but i just can't seem to get in the mood to get cracking. I've almost finished a crochet gift for a family member so i'll show you that next time.
A trip to the post office today and my Christmas Ornament is on it's way, this is a secret exchange so no show of what i made till 1st December when we will learn who stitched for who. I'm stalking my postie looking forward to mine arriving, he got such a shock today when i opened the front door before he even pressed the doorbell wondering if he had it in his little mitts, but alas not today, maybe tomorrow. He is such a nice man and knows i am a mad woman when it comes to stitchy post.... aren't we all?
