We have been struck down by seasonal coughs and colds and a stomach bug. Yuk. Yuk. Yuk. I knew I was ill as I didn't want to read any blogs! Apologies for lack of comments. I now have two recovering kids off school so any reading is out of the window. But fingers crossed we are recovering now. Today, I have been dealing with the seasonal sink unblocking. And the seasonal five year old tantrum. Oh and the unseasonal car repair bill. Ho ho ho.
I have completed just one present this year
Finished and ready for posting - a scarf from my granny hexagons. Some of them turned out to be octagons but never mind! I edged them all with pale grey thrifted wool and stitched them up to make a bright textured scarf for an old friend.
Christmas bits and pieces are appearing around the house.
While Rocket Girl slept last week I finally, finally, FINALLY, cut out my first Renfrew. I am so late to the Renfrew party. All the cool sewers have moved onto to something else I know. I bought the pattern in May, so it has been waiting 6 months. I am using some purple cotton jersey given to me by the lovely Scruffybadger. Hopefully it won't be another 6 months before I sew it up.
Tova pattern hanging up
I also finally printed out my Tova pattern last week (I am so late to that party too) which I bought as a PDF about 6 months ago. Now I am just sticking it together, which so far is straightforward. I know I won't get any work done on it till after New Year and the return to school.
So anyway, I hope you all have a peaceful and happy holiday. On Sunday I am off to stay in a house with no internets....eeek. The good news for me is I am not cooking Christmas dinner, tee hee. See you on the other side. xx
