Uploaded off the camera, wanna see what i've been doing?

Crafting keeps you smiling ............ finishes since I last wrote a few words here ....

Charity blanket finished and here's a close up of the lovely pattern -

Christmas gift for Miss Isabelle.  She wanted a pair of socks like mummy has had knitted by nanny, so santa will fulfil her wish :-)

You were all right, she NEEDED another clanger in the set, this one is Tiny clanger - will there be more?

Stitching ....

The Wednesday SAL with Barb and the ladies at NH, Merry and Bright was stitched, but not made up yet.

Octobers challenge, a free chart by Janlynn, found here.  I think I told you in the last post that it was a very simple finish.  A coaster that will accompany a nice Christmas mug as a gift.

Plum Street Sampler SAL, I've seen quite a few of these being started.  Day 1 and 2 are complete so I have a few to catch up with as this week 5 gold rings was posted .....

perhaps I wont get them done for this Christmas, but a start has been made....

Made a couple of these for the craftshare group for the Christmas event.

Not a lot to say this time, feeling a bit under the weather with a sinus infection that has resulted in a perforated ear drum and other health issues that are rearing their head again.

I'll be back soon feeling much brighter.

Thanks for stopping by... Blessings to you all
