Pins and Whiskers has reminded us that it is time to show our Christmas make for November and it's the last official month before the big event! This month I made a gift rather than my usual decoration: a newborn sock hat and Saartje's booties, both free patterns from Ravelry here and here. My niece's baby is due on Christmas day and these will be extra gifts to go with the cot quilt I made. Thanks Narelle as always for being our Chief Elf and encouraging us along each month!
Sunday was a lovely day, I was able to take ladies from my church to visit Julie at Threadbear Cottage. We had such a nice afternoon: sitting under trees, drinking cups of tea from old china and enjoying yummy nibbles. We also got in some shopping from her gorgeous little shop, the bottom photo is what I found to buy, some things for me and some for a friend. Julie was so kind and gave me a gift - a lolipop of fabric, gardeners soap and Christmas decorations. I love them all and will enjoy using them. We had a stop on the way home at a nearby lavender farm, the scents and sights were beautiful. Wendy xx
