It's reached that time of year when I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark I think the lawn may have been mown for the last time this year, the front hedge has been cut and garden furniture packed away in the garage until next spring.
What's a girl to do these long evenings?
I cleared the decks in my craft room and set to. Fifty xmas cards later and I'm feeling quite smug... never have I been so organised. I adapted a simple idea that I stole from Pinterest and set up a production line, everything used came from my stash.
Next up, another crocheted cat blanket knocked up for the Cats Protection from odds and sods. I was whittling down my yarn stash quite nicely until Friday when I visited Uckfield's many charity shops and came away with 200g of variegated DK.
I've a new project on my hook which I'm hoping to share with you soon... provided I get my head around the pattern instructions!
Speaking of yarn, this next card was made for Helen, a Stitch & Bitch chum who'll be celebrating a big birthday next weekend. (No need to remind her of the number) She loves all things pretty and pink so let's hope she likes it.
And the Coq au Vin?? Well I forgot to take a photo of it before I dished it up for lunch yesterday but here is the wreckage.
Did you see Nigella last week? I'm only surprised that she didn't lick the camera lens!
