Hello! We have just had a lovely long weekend here, it was cold and crisp and clear, perfect Winter weather really.
Gary and I had a great night out with friends on Saturday, something we don't do enough of, (note to self, organise more adult get togethers!), it was really fun!
Sunday was spent generally mooching about, recovering from a late night and many glasses of wine, so perfect for a spot of gentle crafty activity.
The fact that we also had Monday at home, meant I could really get stuck into finishing off these little decorations, the things I had made all the flowery shaped layers for.
You might recognise these Christmas tree decorations, (I made a couple last year here and here if you want to see the originals), and I have to say I am pretty happy how these two turned out, I still love how over the top all the layers look together, and the endless possibilities for colour play.
I think I have made these ones slightly even more over the top with more pompoms than the originals.
These were ordered way back in January, so it is about time they got finished! (I have made a blanket as well for this order so that took up a fair bit of time too!) Thanks for your patience Lori!
Sorry for all the pictures, but I want to try and remember how I did these, as I think I want to make a few more now these are actually complete!
The great think now that I have this order done is I can start on some new ideas without feeling guilty!
I know I have made other things on the side while I've been working on these,(some ideas just wouldn't wait!) but I did feel kind of bad that my lovely customer was waiting for her things, although she put no pressure on me at all, which was very nice of her!
I have started knitting a little stripey scarf as my next quick project, it is fun and I am looking forward to wearing something warm and handmade soon!
Hope you all had a great (long) weekend and got a bit of time for something fun!
