One of my friends was working in Antarctica this summer and sent me this postcard. I love the stamp!

I finished a very cute cross stitch recently - I love the summer colours. It'll be a nice reminder as the winter is definitely moving in. Its strange and kinda horrible to read all the blogs in the Northern Hemisphere welcome the spring. I adapted the pattern a bit as I prefer it a bit more lopsided!

Slowly, slowly, slowly sewing in the ends on this blanket.
Started an octopus - just need to sew on the face.
And working on this blanket (a much smaller affair). I ran out of wool and looked for some this weekend. Luckily, a shop in town stocks it and I'm waiting on some more of the colours to arrive in from all around the country!

A friend of mine very kindly (and out of the blue) gifted me a gingerbread house kit. Yum, yum!
It came in pieces with a bit of whittling to do to even out the edges. Unfortunately at this stage I dropped one of the roof pieces... Oophs...
