I have two new finishes to show you all!
Only little things, but still.
Well, the first one is small; it was decided that the house I’m living in (it’s a student house, there are 6 of us in total) needed a Santa. And because I wasn’t really doing anything at the time, and everyone up here knows I craft, I was somehow roped in to make it. So, here is Santa:
I think it’s a really cute thing to make with some left-over corks. I have plans in my mind to make some elves, as place markers for Christmas, but although I have the wine corks to make them, I’m not sure if I’ll have time to make them. I do have a couple of long train rides coming up, so I may do them then, unless I’m busy doing something else!
I’ve also finished the first doily for my parents:
I really like it, and hopefully my parents will too :). I’m currently planning on making two now, as there are really only 2 jugs at home we use. This doily is 20 cm across, which I think should be big enough for the larger jug, which has a 16 cm diameter. I will check when I get home for Christmas though, as
I’m not a complete idiot I don’t want to leave these things to chance 🙂
I really need to get on with Frederick now… I only have a week before I go home, and in an ideal world, all the backstitching will be done by them time I get home. Somehow, however, I doubt I’ll get all the backstitching done in a week, so… I’m trying not to think about how much time I’ll have to finish him off when I get home, both so I don’t scare myself and so I won’t relax and not start until I get there!
Are you on track for Christmas gifts?
