Yarn Along, a day of completion.

A day of completion! I am joining Ginny over at Small things for her weekly yarn along

Well I gave manged to finish the moss stitch scarf for my Dads Christmas present (it's shorter than I expected but it will tuck in nicely into his motorbike jacket). I have also finished my book the Distant Hours this morning in bed with a cuppa, what a treat.

My managing to complete things doesn't end there, I have had a good few things hanging around and this morning I have been on a mission. I have finished another padded hanger, they are Christmas presents, also a little gnome that has a little bed which will go in Arthur's stocking. I've also thrown in for good measure the felt ball that I made at the Steiner mother and baby group I run, we all really enjoyed the felting and I think we are all hooked!

Well that's my morning sorted,now to get on and finish my Christmas party dress you can see my adventures in dressmaking here

Hows your day going?

Dear Charlotte

I am so happy that your parcel arrived and that you are happy. How absolutely lovely that they arrived on the 1st Dec!

I am in love with homemade goodies. I believe along with the gift you receive the wonderful spirit in which it was made. That is just such a treasure all in itself.

Happy count down...and love to your family~

Warm regards
to you Charlotte

First time read of your blog and I think you live in one of the prettiest parts of the world, Devon and Cornwall. I read of your community quilt idea and thought you may like a look at the one at Sarina, Queensland, Australia that a group of lovely people made. It hangs in the local library. It is very much admired by all! I think it may come up on Google. No.. I do not make quilts.. no patience. But, I do sew.
Best wishes...

Charlotte ~! my gorgeous King Winter arrived today with a very cute little bird ornament. I just love nature and seasonal tables and he will be perfect for our Winter one. I will let him sleep until then. Thank you kindly Charlotte. I love the card too. Olivia will be excited.

Its been wonderful doing the swap with you and I really hope we will cross paths again this way. I hope you are cozy and warm. I believe its pretty cold in England at the moment.

Have yourselves a very Merry Christmas.

Lots of love

Oh Charlotte, the scarf turned out so well - I really love the texture of it all. What a busy bee you have been too - the felted things are lovely. xx
