I had some fun and a little difficulty knitting this little bauble using 4 double pointed needles instead of 5. I have bought a new set so will have another go soon. It is from an amazing book by Arne and Carlos, called 55 Christmas Balls to knit.

There has been a little Christmas creating happening here. Some of it is for gifts so I will show those later on. My class ladies have been busy too making beautiful things. Jayne is such a good needle turner who loves using the Lynette Anderson tools. These little appliques on this wonderful ipad case, designed by Anni Downs, look fantastic. I have this kit too and will enjoy making it....after Christmas perhaps.

Lynne came to class last week and showed me these amazing Japanese creations. Her lovely sister-in -law goes to Japan each year and bought her this zippered stitching pouch and this little purse. They are both so gorgeous.
I hve a finish too. I have been slowly stitching these houses over the last months and it was lovely to finish this great mat for Christmas. It is a Helen Stubbings pattern.
It was very exciting to get Part 10 of Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs this week. I just had to start!

It was so lovely to be invited to spend a stitching weekend away at Crackenback with some great friends. There was some stitching but there was also lots of eating and drinking, chatting and sharing.....which is what you expect at a stitching weekend! Thanks to Michelle and Maria for organising such a wonderful time.
