Sheltering by the fire

Well, at last we're feeling a lot better, thank goodness. But, I don't seem to have been very busy.

Just a couple of things, though.

Hats for Sailors! These are a couple I did this week, from donated wool, for our charity knitting group. They'll be given to somebody who will distribute them (along with all the others which have been done) to sailors and fishermen. It is a lovely group, and one person had not really knitted before, yet she knitted a whole hat in one week! An impressive lot, too.

Also, along with my wanting to make as much as I can this year, I have made this,

It's a little bit of needle felting for my neice's birthday card. I've never done this before, but luckily have a book on it here which I got when I went to Twist Fibre Studio recently. I think it looks like a birthday cake from here, don't you?

The reason I've not been doing a lot of crafty stuff this week is because - ta da! - I have my new workroom nearly done!

Pictures will follow shortly.

Nice hats! Well done you, and the six is very nice (you are so neat, how do you do that?). A new workroom - wow, can't wait to see those pictures :-)

Good for you making the hats and the card! Looking forward to seeing the pics of the workroom and it's good to hear you're better xxx

Very well done.

papoosue - fear, is how I keep it neat! I was not really sure of what I was doing, but I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out. I think next time I'll sit at my table, properly, with some polystyrene underneath and won't stab my fingers so much!

thanks shaby chic - I just popped over to your blog and am v impressed with your banners

alfazema - I knitted the hats and needle-felted the 6. I didn't get the mojo to actually make a pressie for this neice, but was desperate to make the card.

What a beautiful card and yes it does look a bit like a cake but that's not to take anything away from it. Love the hats too. You still got snow? Flick xx
