I've never been one to put the Christmas Decorations up more than a week before Christmas. I only go Christmas shopping in December and I don't send Christmas cards more than one weekend before Christmas. But this year, I have started thinking about Christmas gifts for craft fairs good and early.
Did you know that there could be so much effort to get a Christmas stocking just right?
I've tried fattening, thining, shortening, lengthening, I'm still not sure I'm happy but here goes:
|Footnote: (pun intended), I'll get the iron out when I get to the final design!|
Knitted sock update: progress continues on the right foot, but panic is beginning to set in, I had to continue for around 6 inches, then do something... if I can't find the instructions soon, then my deadline (that I set myself) of October 2nd, might just slip away.
Doting parent update: I am proud to announce that I removed the stabilisers from my 5 year olds bike on Sunday, and she rode off into the sunset! Unfortunately the 2 and half year old appears to want to follow suit - he crawled at 5 months, walked at 10 months, so I guess riding a bike by 3 is in his schedule!
So pop over to 1st unique gifts and see what everyone else has been up to.
