Hey there guys, sorry for the absence but I have been sickly, and not in a good way. It's left me with labyrinthitis/vertigo again which basically means my brain feels like it is spinning around in my head and I'm going to be violently sick. Anyway, the lovely nurse practitioner is writing me a new prescription as I type so hopefully I'll be feeling alot better soon.
Anyway, remember this post? The story of two crafters who love ''MollieMakes'' magazine and who have shared their combined skills to swap special makes? Well we have now made out makes and swapped. The owl mittens were so easy to make and I had enough wool to make the mug warmers too which took an afternoon. And here are the results:
The lovely Emma sent me a beautiful package tied up with yellow tissue and tied with twine..............my fave, can see a LO coming on about this and inside were her crocheted gifts.
I had asked for mini-heart bunting but I also got a beautiful teal rose which is so appropriate for Team Teal
and also a lovely crocheted bird which reminds me of Attic 24 who I adore so an in all a very happy swap I think.
Emma's pieces are beautifully made and she has an Etsy shop here so if you're looking for gifts or just some bunting for you hop on over, she has an amazing range available.
Now as I am on a roll, I thought I would share some future posts with you. There will be some JYC 2012 and updates about my jaunts once I get this sickness abated. I am meant to be going to the Cathedral tomorrow night for carols so it better be. My sister has eventually responded to my post about her with a post about, wait for it, ME! I'm so excited to have another guest poster and it's her first time so be gentle with her. That will go live Sunday 23rd Dec and will be birthday related apparently.
Finally as I have been taking pictures for JYC 2012, I came across the new style decorations in M&S where the Xmas friends seem to be slightly out of place. You see the Easter bunny has become the Xmas bunny and apparently there is a Xmas squirrel despite the fact that squirrels hibernate at this time of the year. Anyway for your laughter I present to you the Xmas squirrel, drum roll please....................................
