getting ready for christmas

On my new weekly schedule, Tuesday is my day for blogging...can you tell?!!

I've just finished my handful of autumn that i wrote about last week, and here is the result.

The items are now hanging up along our fireplace giving us that warm and cosy autumn feel. My favourite is the pumpkin, the hardest was the conker, the least realistic is probably the filed mouse on the left...my mum thought it was a bat...oops, i think i needed to do lighter coloured ears!

I still haven't braved knitting some oak leaves yet to go with the rest of the items, not sure whether its a bit too ambitious.

I'm starting to think about my Christmas knits now. The kids want me to knit full size stockings for them...eek. I rather fancy knitting a Christmas garland and some snowmen for the fireplace. The latest copy of the knitting magazines have inspired me! I'm a sucker for buying knitting mags I'm afraid!
