RIDING ALONG ON MY PUSHBIKE HONEY
WHEN I NOTICED YOU....
It has been another crazy week - five band rehearsals, a contest, catching up with a long lost cousin, stuffing Ferrero Rochers into knitted Christmas puddings etc etc. (more later) I wish this week coming up would be quieter but it's not.
The girls at Knit Stitch and B*tch asked me to make some more felt Christmas decorations so that's what I've been doing when there's been a spare five minutes here and there. I stopped at Hobbycraft in Swansea last Friday because I was running out of lace trims, white embroidery floss and ribbons.
A close up of my new stash - I'll enjoy using these, especially the tartan, I'm really into it at the minute: it must be the after effects of meeting Elizabeth at the Crop :-D
I met up with the Knit Stitch and B*tch mob last Thursday in a local cafe where there was a mass stuffing going on, lol!! The girls have knitted about 400 mini Christmas puddings and attached a loop to hang them - there's just enough room inside in which to stuff a single Ferrero Rocher choccy. These will then be sold at a stall in the local hospital in December - all profits are going to the Breast Care unit and another women's ward. I've made felt decorations, doggy bandannas, mini stockings for the cause.
Here's a piccy of the girls...
A happy bunch - they're great fun!
...and the stuffed puddings!! Local businesses have donated all the chocs and the yarn was from everyone's stashes, so it's all profit! We sold £42's worth whilst in the cafe. They'll have to knit some more now :-D
One evening G and I walked down the harbour, it was a beautiful evening and we just fancied stretching our legs:
I do love living by the sea again!
Have a great week everyone xxxxx
