Mimi, you're so talented. That knitted blanket is gorgeous! There is a bigger version of the quilt I did, the dinosaurs are in a rainbow gradient, it's gorgeous.

I love the painted rocks, such a cute idea!

Agreed. There isn't one of them that if I found them, wouldn't put a big smile on my face. :)

Whilst procrastinating the task of cutting a long rectangle of fleece for a scarf that school have requested for a video tomorrow (a job that would take maybe two minutes, tops) I made a whole Santa outfit.

Still haven’t cut out the scarf.

That's brilliant! I love his Grinch jumper too. I think when this is all over I might employ you as my dressmaker. :D

Thanks both. I got his school scarf made eventually, too. And some bags for the teachers’ Christmas gifts. And the Grinch sweater GJ mentioned.

@Zardoz I got a new crow for the tree this year, but it’s really hard to photograph. That tree looks more impressive in real life. It doesn’t photograph well, and I have just never been able to photograph Christmas trees.

Speaking of which, where is the Christmas tree thread...?

In a fit to appease my crafty side somewhat, I've cut out the fabric for some pyjama bottoms. I won't get to do any more now until next weekend at the earliest, but it felt nice to at least do something .

They’re going to be ace, Jazzy. Are they for you or Joans?

I’ve not done anything in forever, apart from make a few gloves and mittens.

The lady we bought the house from did leave us a handmade card, though:

They're for Joan's, I've been promising them for ages. He's eagerly awaiting new undies too. :D

Aww, that's really sweet. Do you have a list of projects you are hoping to do in the house?

Not really. There are practical ‘must dos’ such as get some curtains, but in more ‘craft’ terms I want to make some labels for the plastic storage bins I’ve bought to go in the fridge and larder, but we’ve got to get some shelves in that larder first.

Hot glue gun?

If it's for light duty, they're less than a tenner.

I have carved a spoon. It's all wonky, and an awkward shape to actually use, and I haven't treated it yet so it isn't food-safe, but I am quite chuffed with it. I have a feeling everyone I know is going to be getting spoons for Christmas.
