Hi gang, thanks so much for all of your lovely comments in my last post, we are feeling super duper excited and cannot wait to be in eeekkk, and yes of course i will show photos.
So i thought as its finished object friday i would finally show you some of the things I made for people for christmas.
As you may have gathered i made lots of quilts, i couldnt make everyone one but im happy with what i did first up.
This is a little baby quilt i made for my friends baby Lydia,
This is my sisters quilt, she asked me for one a while ago and i was like hhmm no im not shipping a whole quilt to Australia but then i figured its actually quite light, and light presents are always high on the list when sending them to auzzie land.
There is a funny story to go with my sisters quilt, so given she lives on the other side of the world, i wrapped it, then put it in a bag, in a bag in a bag, in a bin bag. So once it had travelled to the other side of the world it was looking a bit tatty! When my sis got in from work and found a half mangled bin bag on her door stop she thought it was rubbish, she then referred to it as 'the body bag' for the next couple of weeks lol.
This is the quilt i made for my friends baby Jack (who i met at xmas) and she sent me a super cute if not dark and blurry photo lol
Cute cute cute
I didnt actually take a photo of the quilt i made for Ethan (he is my cousins baby)
You can kinda see it, its a boy version to the one i made for Lydia.
This is Elijahs quilt, i was too poorly to see him at xmas so this is still sat in my parents house lol, i actually forgot to take a pic of this before i wrapped it, so had to unwrap it then re wrap doh!
Are you bored of quilts yet? just one more
This is the quilt i made for Heather, terrible photo i know but again last minute.
Right as for knits
This is lovely Fran with the lovely hair, wearing her lovely shroom christmas present!
this is me modelling it for ravelry
This is my little granny trying on her new christmas shroom yay! I find it pretty exciting that after all these years after my granny taught me to knit i can finally make her things.
Im not sure if i showed you this little guy
He was the monster i planned on knitting a million times for quick christmas presents, lol he was not quick, but im pleased with how he turned out and I hear Max (leannes baby) like him.
maybe i have shown you these too but these are the mitts i made for secret santa at work, they went down really well, i hear the person in question was inspecting them for mistakes as she didnt know if they were shop bought or not hee hee
This is the from norway with love hat, which is now my 3rd i have knit and this is probably the only one that fits properly, i made it for my big sis as she is off skiing this month, this is her modelling it.
Finally this is a Boneyard Shawl i made for my MIL, it was finished as i sat in the car outside her house on boxing day doh!
She really liked it so thats fabby.
This is a little paper crafting something i made, its not often i make things like this but here it is
I got a polystyrene tree shaped erm tree from the local craft shop, and easy peasy i punched out some fun circles with my martha stewart punch and pinned them in place with some pretty pins, easy peasy and cute.
So there you go thats it all, so maybe you can see why I was a little off making things lol, but i am pleased to say that my hat i am making is nearly finished.
I have a knitting pattern question actually,
do you think this means,
