Two books from the library this week. Halfyard Christmas wasn't very inspiring. It was a bit too much burlap and bunting for me.
Handmade Christmas was a lot more fun. Many of the crafts are by Clare Youngs. I read her "Christmas Crafting in no time" last October. Some of the crafts are repeats from that book, but it did give me a few ideas.
We're having a Craft Fair at UCF in December and I want to make some bits to sell.
But I was also given a book this week by a friend. She said it has been on her bookshelf for years and she didn't think she'd ever get round to using it.
I've had fun knitting a mini jumper and pair of mittens from patterns in the book as a thank you gift for her. I made a little coathanger for the jumper from a pipe cleaner wrapped in tape.
I really enjoy autumn evenings when I can sit and do festive knitting and stitching
