samX 4 Xmas

Time to think about decorations for the holiday season at the office, and since George has left I took the chance to make samX (Xmas backwards :-) ) 

samX is a red and green dalek with extra sparkles and a bit of glitter to make him stand out from the rest of the yarn daleks.

It's about time I got into my etsy bloggers team routine again.  I missed last month because of the laptop being stolen, and now with the new one there is no excuse!

The theme:
What item are you working on?? What is your inspiration for this piece??

Well I'm working on lots of stuff as usual, however my 'thing' at the moment is felting.  I'm really enjoying making things and popping them in the washing machine with an old towel and seeing how it comes out the other side.  I've had a couple of bombs, and a couple of dead cool things :-)

My inspiration comes from loads of places on the interweb, though mostly from the pictures of the fabulous and creative people on ravelry, Drops Design and interweavecrochet

Specs & Stash

Too much time in front of the computer I think. 
Yep it's getting to that age when the specs are needed (hahaha not really, I've supposed to have worn them for quite a few years now and just ignored them!)
I wore them driving home tonight - and now I know why Andrew tells me off for travelling so close to the car in front!

I will be able to admire my new stash better though :-)

Oh the plans I have for this lovely selection of lambs wool and other wool!  My nephew helped me to wind the skeins in to balls at the weekend - I haven't been able to get Andrew to do that for ages, he's so over it :-)

(oh - And I have an idea for a George spin off, I'll let you know how it goes :-) )

Bye bye George

Today George the Fluffy Blue Dalek left his relm and is off to take over Wellington.
Thank you to the lovely person that bought George and helped out the people in shaky Christchurch
For the first time I feel a bit sad to say goodbye to something I've made
Awwww :-)
