Bunting and penguins

I finished a second floral bunting.  I love how festive it turned out.

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

cross stitch bunting

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!

Works in progress

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!

Gingerbread house

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...

The end result was a little messy - but a lot of fun!
