Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas,and like me, are looking forward to the New Year. My yougest daughter came for Christmas day,with her 2 children,that was lovely.I spoke to my eldest daughter on the phone,she lives in Australia,and they are having a very hot Christmas. I havnt been idle over Chistmas,I cant sit and do nothing,so have spent the time knitting.
I have taken this photo of my Christmas tree. The baby doll I have knitted for a friends daughter,she is expecting her first baby and its a pink one.. The fairy and superkid were for my granfchildren.Allfrom Jean Greenhowe's book,Little Gift Dolls.
I have now started to knit Santa from another of Jeans books,he is a larger doll,so will take a bit longer to knit.Its from Christmas Special,its full of really lovely things to make,including the Nativity(think I will do that next Christmas)
I will post a pic of him finished. Enjoy New Years Eve,see you in2012.xxx Lou

Blanket almost finished,finger almost better.
I have so many things I want to do and cutting my finger on a pair of scissors was very silly.

cut finger

I have cut my finger,so no sewing for a while,so I have decided that as I can still crochet without  catching the cut,I will have a good go at the blanket and try to complete by next week.
Brian is very busy in the garage so no outings fo a few days.[plenty of crochet time for me]
I will post a picture as soon as it is finished.xx

Made this one in the week,it is Black Onyx pendant and Black Jade beads.


3 made,3 to go.Have to stop making hexis for a while,get this blancket finished.[why do I do too many things at the same time]......

Fridays quick make

I needed a holder for my crochet hooks .They were getting all mixed up in the bottom of my work bag.

Next week I am going to make a work box, keep it in the living room,so I dont have to keep running up and dowd the stairs.
