This will be my last post of 2016, so I’d just like to say Happy New Year to you! I hope 2017 will be happy, healthy and full of creativity.
Thankyou for following me, and taking time to read my posts and comment too.
I know it’s it not Sunday, but I’m on nights over the weekend so thought I’d be early for a change, especially as it’s a 2 week round up from the Christmas period.
I’ve not been able to spend much time at the sewing machine, but have had quite a few nights in front of the TV crocheting another heart scarf. I’ve made quite a few of these and never get bored of the pattern. I bought the pattern on Craftsy, it’s quite easy and there’s photos for each row which really helps. Here’s the link if you fancy having a go.
Rory having a big yawn but looking quite ferocious!!
Arriving home after a night shift has it’s benefits – there’s been some amazing sunrises and sunsets recently. This isn’t one of them but still it’s easy on the eye.
Hubby won a hamper at work! The Yorkshire Popcorn was particularly yummy!
I’ve had quite a few shopping sprees in Leeds. I left H with a pasty in Greggs and popped into Samuel Taylors. The beige and grey are power mesh which I’ve been meaning to buy for ages.
Christmas hair do!
Christmas eve we went into leeds for cocktails and a bit to eat, and shopping too. I’m stood on a step here but am still the shortest by a mile!
Christmas Day we went out for a curry. I wore my new frock – made using the Sewaholic Renfrew.
Boxing Day I made a Christmas Dinner
Followed by Play Your Cards Right – thanks Cyber Pops for making the stand on the day!
Big Sister and I drank a little bit too much wine!
Another shopping spree – Leeds from a different angle showing the top of the trinity centre.
And a wander through Leeds market down to the new John Lewis.
There were a few fabrics half price in John Lewis but not many. I bought 2m of cotton jersey (red) and 2m of viscous jersey (teal). I’m trying to buy solids to make more wearable garments and less orphans.
A little bit of knitting in between the crochet. I’m using one of the chucky 25mm needles from Wool And The Gang.
Boxing Day 2015 and Boxing Day 2016 – H with his older cousin and Grandpa. I think my dad’s shrinking!
Here’s what I was planning to make for Linda’s Designing December……
But made this!! Not sure yet if it will be worn outside of the house!!
Well, I must dash. I’m on duty in 40 minutes. I hope the people of Yorkshire will be healthy and safe tonight, and around the world too.
Happy New Year!! xxx
