However I did treat myself to this cheery tea cosy in Robert Dyas for only £2.99.
Love this banner by Jan Constantine!

I already had these felts and the brooch backs so I didn't have to buy anything! I love it when a little project comes together quickly and easily! Especially at this time of year!I'm just making some little gift boxes to pop them in.

just getting into the swing of Christmas and I've been making a few homemade pressies and I thought I'd share this one with you! Ages ago I bought this yarn from a car boot and was at a little bit of a loss of what to make with it!
But today I have made 3 garlands, so easy peasy and quick to make.
Thought I'd do a quick tutorial for you.
1.Select your yarn. Mine looks a bit like candyfloss.
2.Wrap the yarn around your fingers, I wrapped mine 40 times around 3 fingers3.Carefully slip the yarn off your fingers and tie a piece of yarn around the middle of your bundle.
4.Snip though the ends of one side of the pom pom , and then the other.
5. Fluff out the pom pom with your fingers. At this point it may look a little bit miss-shapen but don't worry. You just need to trim around the ball of yarn with your scissors!
That's it! It's as simple as that!I made 10 pom-poms for my garland.
6.I then threaded my pom-poms onto crochet cotton leaving a 15cm gap between each pom-pom bauble.I also allowed 20cm at each end for tying.
Just the kind of quick project you need at this time of year.I'm going to make some tiny ones for my tree next!
P.S I shall be back tomorrow with a little giveaway!

Was it difficult? It was sometimes,especially as the seasons changed and I couldn't buy a new top or anything!Also I love magazines and that was a bit hard, especially at Christmas, when I usually like to treat myself to a Christmas issue or two! Thank goodness the lovely Floss organized a magazine swap!I made more use of the local library too!

Yesterday I decided to make up some of my Hexie patches that I started on ages ago, you know one of those projects you put to one side for a little while and then totally forget about! I 've got lots of those!
I think this patchwork piece is destined to become a small cushion. In fact I am making it to fit the IKEA Irma cushion pad as its only 35cm x 35cm!
Have a sweet day
