Cones & Crepe

To compliment the lights (which really only look good at night) and so it looks fab for Saturday we have begun Operation Christmas Up The Deck.

Back to our childhoods, we have gathered pine cones and spray painted them silver, and have started to make paper chains with crepe paper.  Andrew has the sewing machine running hot whizzing up this and that.  
It will either look fantastic or crape I doubt there can be an in-between!

Crochet hook is still going strong - all the pressies are made, hurray! I tried to make a little summer cardigan (tried being the important word!)I've also tried crocheting flax. I think it's a great idea, I just need to work on it... quite a lot!  And after cleaning out my yarn stash I'm trying a cotton beach/market bag, this one of the 3 projects looks the most promising :-)

Pegs as Angels

I'm loving the Australian Better Homes and Gardens Mag for stuff to do for Christmas!
I've spent the last 3 nights making peg doll angels - awww

As usual I thought I'd make one for the tree and now miraculously there is a whole family of them just waiting for their hair...

 I've also popped a couple of bags in the Felt shop - Yay for having the computer back and working properly :-)
