I decided to print off some of the patterns accumulating on my laptop and boy now I'm feeling a wee bit....forget that negativity.  Let's just say rather than looking on it as lots to do, overwhelming and a long long list, I've decided that it means (poor, poor unfortunate me!) lots and lots of necessary sitting on my bottom watching box sets and films whilst sewing and knitting.  
It's important work I tells ya! 


I loves a homemade Christmas!

I confess though the first thing on this printed out pile that will be made are for me... 

 Surely if I am to work so hard [??!!] for Christmas it is essential for me to be comfortable and cosied up in the feet department.  I found the wool recommended for a bargain price of 12.95 instead of 36.00 for a ten pack.  Shocking for 100% undyed virgin wool!  Not that I need ten balls but everywhere else would have sold only the four required for the same price.  Now I could knit another pair for someone else and have two balls left over for a pair of socks.  Not keen on the word 'smug' but if the feeling fits...

What is on your crafting 'to do' list?


p.s the pattern for the bunny slippers can be purchased from here.  If you'd like to see more of my knits, I am on Ravelry as cupcakeandbiscuit.  You do have to be a member or join to have a looksee  but it's easy to do so and is an amazingly helpful and fun site, lots of available patterns etc.


  1. Holy goodness what a busy bee you are. I don't have much making to do for christmas. The chutney has been taken care of already, and the baked goods obviously have to wait. Other than that I don't really have any big crafting plans, other than to knit myself a scarf. xxx

  2. I am just cheap and naive Elspeth, thinking I have all the time in the world! Some of the above are gifts for the tree too, I need to see someone I think! x

  3. Those slippers are too cute! I made a list of things to make about 10 days ago - it's about 20 items long and so far I have only managed to cross off two - but I did get sidetracked into about 10 other (small) makes! Hopeless! I am off to have another look at 'Little Owl Knits'...
    Have a crafty weekend!

  4. Well I have bought the wool but unfortunately I have passed it to my Mum because she is a fantastic knitter!!! I do crochet and sew though!
    The slippers are so sweet!

  5. Awwwwwwwwwww.......... those slippers! :O))))))))))))

  6. Cute slippers! Poor you having to spend all that time sitting knitting. Such hardship!!!
    I have a crafting/to-do list as long as my arm, not necessarily related to Christmas, but I find I am procrastinating. xx


I love to hear from all you interesting folks out there so don't be shy.
Had to put the annoying word verification back on as the spam was getting silly. Forgive me! Ali
