Hey to everybody. not that much to talk about this time, but a little to write about, So lets get to it. Unwrap a chocolate bar (I'm chooseing a NEW Galaxy Bar, this one's with Truffles), pour a glass of milk, sissyjuice or wine and come to read with me.
Attention all crafters and people who like to be nice to their friends at Christmas. I have Grave news... its only 85 days to Christmas.
Yep. 85 (check if u don't beleive me) thats 12 weeks, exactly. Now's the time to start planning, panicing and (for me) yarncrafting. This year I have 20 people to get for. 20!!! That's including my Mum and Dad (which is gonna be difficult), Craig's Mum and Dad and of course Craig. (which I've already started on lol) Along with 15 close friends.
10 people are getting handmade gifts. Some Cricket jumpers (craig only) and others are getting Socks, Hats or ofter little accessories. Which brings to my mind something from Last week. Sock votes.
---What a waste---
I got 1 vote.... ONE!!! I'm.... disappointed. but at least I have somewhere to Start. Thank you Nadine for being the only voter. I won't talk anymore on the subject because certain people that I thought would vote didn't. That's all.
---Some sock news---
Nadine kindly voted for Monkey socks by Cookie A. which will be the socks that I will cast on First. then (because the voting system doesn't seem to work) I will pull names out of a hat or use a randomiser or something. In fact I'll do that all now.... please talk among yourselves lol)
1st to Cast on = Monkey (by Cookie A)
In the brown colour (I'm calling it Sugar)
2nd to Cast on = Interlocking Leaves
In the Bright rainbow colour (top beside the blue)
3rd to Cast on = Chloe Socks
In the Blue (which I'm calling River, beause there's Steel Grey in there too, and no Green)
4th to Cast on = Outside In
In the flower-y colour (calling Iris)
I'm casting on as soon as I finish Craig's Gloves (because they're made on the same needles... go figure. (and no; I don't want another pair... I have too many needles already)I'm printing out a calendar now, trying to set myself timelimits and days to do certain things. So that I'm not madly rushing at the Last minute:
Mondays are for Criket Jumper
Tuesdays are for Stitching (cross or other)
Wednesdays are for Gloves/Socks
But anyway: all this working with Cross stitch encouragted me to get out all my old Cross stiching stuff... I was overblown by the sheer amount of the material, So I've decided to make Xmas Cards for some special people this year. Showcasing my crosstitching skills lol.
Previews of all Xmas projects will happen on the 10th of December. That's the Cards, Cricket Jumper, Socks, Secret Santa projects and secret GBP, GHN and others.
I will blog again on the 15th of October. Hopefully with some pictures of socks and stuff
Until then I've got a Chicken Curry to tuck into (yep u heard me right me:curry....It's Craig's influence I tell ya) Toodles XXX
