There is no fireside
like your own fireside.
Hello, I hope those who celebrate Christmas had a wonderful time. We had a fantastic Christmas, most of the time hanging out in the pool. It was 44C in our parts, but having a pool is top fun. I have stitching together some left over squares to make myself a table topper for a small desk in the library. It measures 20 inches x 40 inches and will make a nice display with the books.
I have knitted a small bird from leftover yarns and it is a pattern I have loosely copied from the net. I decided to use buttons for the eyes and stitch on the wings.
Another knitted bird that can be knitted using just normal yarn or you can knit it in a furry yarn. I tried the furry yarn as I have a tonne of it, but it was tricky sewing on the eyes and beak. Still a good result. Click here for the pattern.
More knitting than sewing going on around here, but while it is so hot outside I may as well get some knitting done under the air conditioner. I could do some housework, but lets not go there. lol. I am knitting a few extra baby garments to sell, so I have started with a cute white beanie. It fits a 3-6 month old and is very soft.
The tribe has come back home so it looks like lunch is on the cards. Wherever you are I hope you are having a great time.
