Christmas is coming - whether I'm ready or not. I've been playing my Christmas music to get me in the mood and I've got the decorations out from storage - just need to get them out of the boxes and actually up now.
I have made a new decoration for Christmas this year.
A crochet Christmas Tree. It's quite big - about 12 inches tall and the plan is to use it as a centre piece for the table.
I'll maybe decorate it with beads or some fancy yarn.
I had hoped to be able to write up the pattern but I'm that short of time, I don't think it's going to happen this year. If I start in the New Year I may be ready for next Christmas!
I'm nearing the end on a few projects, which is so encouraging. I need to get these done to feel like I'm moving forward.
In terms of projects actually finished, I had 3 grammes of sock yarn leftover from previous projects and I can't bear the thought of just throwing it out, so I made a miniature shawl - modelled here for us by one of my plastic polar bears.
So, it's probably cheating to count this as a finished object - but at the moment, getting anything finished seems to be a challenge.
I'm in decorating mode at the moment. Having finished the hall and stairs, I set to work on the bathroom. It's gone from lime green to pink - and looking good. I've got to fit the carpet tomorrow - and then it'll be done. I've got my eye on Eve's bedroom next ! - no wonder I'm not getting any Christmas stuff done.
And finally, on my morning walk, look who I spotted, watching me walk by.
I stopped and chatted before continuing on my way.
