It was 2 nights before Christmas...
And I could finally share some of my Christmas pressies with you guys!
These, I gave out on Saturday night:
They were for (clockwise from top left): Amy, Karen, Mya, Nicky
are little coin purses made from my handspun, and then dyed. My
little chickens did like them, and in fact Nicola's is just the right
size for her camera. Well done me ;)
They also have little labels sewed into them, but I forgot to take a piccie :( maybe next time.
Also, another little bit of HookStars trivia, that pink one (top right) was the wool I wanted to dye pink when I discovered Hansell's dastardly plan.
The bottom left one was made using the new Hansell's red food
colour. See how different the reds are? Colour 123 makes a
nice bright fushia, and 124 makes a very bright blood red. See
where I'm coming from? [on a side note, I've found some powdered 123, so I'll have to have a play with that after this Christmas madness dies down].
that's all folks! I'm trying desperately to get everything ready
for Sunday, and I still have a lot to do, not to mention the people I
have to catch up with...
rest assured that I'll have something kinda neat to share after the
weekend. So, have a good day everyone (even those of you that
don't celebrate Christmas) and for all you Kiwis and Aussies [especially you, Mya, it doesn't look like we'll be getting any sun :( ],
Slip Slop Slap! I don't want to see any beetroot red faces when I
come back ;) and a tan isn't worth the cancer (says the whitest chick
