Hi, I hope you all had a good, festive holiday and don't have to to back to work too soon.
Some of you may know that we don't really do the Christmas thing in our house but that doesn't stop us from having the occasional presents and sometimes we will treat ourselves. In the past this has included gifts to each other of earplugs ( to wear under crash helmets) thermal clothing ( again for motorcycling) and this year....shares in a fridge freezer. Yes, the old one stopped working just before Christmas so we welcomed the snow and freezing temperatures so we could keep the milk etc fresh.
We now have a brand spanking new fridge freezer..........and the washing machine is playing up and Ian's computer is on the blink. In fact, if you read Biker Ted Diaries there will be a bit of a lull in posts until everything is up and running again.
Anyway, the scarf is finished athough the colours totally confused my camera so a photo of the finished article will have to be in your imagination :-)
I received a lovely parcel from Bettina of Woolly Bits, containing my first ever stitch markers, some lovely bits to add to my embroidery and some teeswater tops for spinning.
A secret Santa at the Spinners, dyers, weavers meeting gave me a needle felting kit.
And I gave myself a book.
Hot off the drop spindle, a mini skein of merino and 'silk' machine embroidery thread.
Many thanks for dropping by, I now need to do some housework :-(
