Christmas Knitting.

I've finally begun knitting for Christmas. [ A little bit late really but it's still only November!]

I've knitted 3 hats so far, but I've decided that I like this one so much I've got to keep it for myself. Although the photo doesn't show it, the yarn is a rich bottle green and the bow is the same colour velvet, topped with a lovely little gold button I found.

Although the colour is slightly reminiscent of my old school uniform, I completely love it!

.....Now i've kept this hat I've got one more to add to the list of things to knit.

Cadbury's embroidery.

I dropped my work off at 'The Framers' in the Custard Factory on friday and was given this lovely Papergirl Birmingham paper crane in return. Here he is!

Here's a couple of close-ups of the Cadbury's embroidery. I'm really pleased with this one. I should really motivate myself to do lots more, especially on my days off work!!

Submission for Papergirl Birmingham

Tonight I finally finished the embroidery I've been working on for Papergirl Birmingham.

I've scanned it in on the A3 scanner and printed a few copies for distribution to the lovely people of Birmingham in the new year. All the dates and venues for the exhibition are yet to be announced, but I'll keep you updated!
