Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Bonus Post!

Because I’m too excited about the fact that I’ve finished my jumper to not share it with you guys!


It’s just a tiny bit too small (so when I put it on it has to go on just right!) but I’m guessing that it’ll grow when I wash it for the first time (nah, it doesn’t need blocking, I’m wearing it already!)

Also, a while ago I mentioned in passing that I would take part in an ornament swap, and yesterday I got mine from Dani, from over at Black Belt Stitching.

It’s gorgeous! The photo really doesn’t do it justice, which is such a shame! I’ll have to get better at taking photos at some point! And it’s beautifully finished too, with some lovely Christmassy snowflake fabric. *swoon* So totally gorgeous!

ornamentSo that’s all from me for mow. Normal posting will (probably) resume next week, the week after certainly!

  1. YES!! I’ve been waiting for this post!
    I don’t really need to say it, do I, because you know what I think of your jumper already. But just in case there’s any uncertainty, let me say, IT’S BEAUTIFUL. And it looks perfect on. I know you said it’s a tiny bit too small, but it doesn’t LOOK too small from the outside.
    Wear it and smile. 🙂

  2. LOVE your jumper! Looks SO good .. And I agree, not too small at all! 🙂

  3. Love it!

    If it really is too short you can always undo the last rows, pick up the stitches and knit it again, but it’s a lot of work…

    Lovely cross stitch decoration 🙂

  4. That is totally adorable! I looks awesome on you.
