The countdown to Christmas starts.


I haven't been able to do much sewing recently as we have been decorating downstairs and all my sewing things have been packed away (I sew in a small corner of our dining room) so now it is a race against time to get all my Christmas sewing done!

I always leave thing till the last minute and can often be found still sewing gifts on Christmas Eve (this runs in my family as my nan was the same)

I have made a start and finished this bear yesterday. It is meant to be more for decoration than a toy and is for my new niece. He is made from a recycled felted sweater after I saw a bear made out of a similar cable knit in the shops. He is only small and I have plenty of the sweater left to make some more things.

I have a few more things planned to make this week as long as the snow holds off here and the kids can still get to school!
