A quick one,,

This post is not going to a picture heavy one,, I haven't taken any pictures lately.
Jill@emerald cottage,,, please email me, my email is under 'view profile', your snail mail address so I can send you the cross-stitch kit.
My blanket has come to a stop again,, gone wonky somewhere,,, again! I must have increased somewhere. The wonky edge is the changing colour edge this time.

I also finished by Hitch 4 scarf, photo next time, as it has to be blocked and with the weather being rather cold at the moment, it can wait.
I am going to the Crafts4Crafters show at Westpoint next Saturday,,, so hopefully my next post will be full of photos.

I have decided not to make any 'New Year Resolutions' as I can never stick to them,,, but I have a couple of 'things' that I am going to try to stick with. One of them is,,, do I need it,, do I want it!!! I am doing pretty good with this. As I have sorted out my yarn and fabric stashes, I now know what I have,, which is a good thing,, coz I didn't know I had THAT MUCH!!! It is actually quite a shock to 'see' what I have got.....

I have decluttered a lot,, at least 10 bags have gone to the charity shop in the last month and a half. And I am not finished yet!!!
Talking of which,,, do any of my regular readers want

 a pattern for a christmas card hanger,,,,,,

or a cross stitch kit,,,, neither will ever get made by me. I have had both for a couple of years.
If you want either of them,, just leave a comment.

I have not been doing much creating lately,, but I did treat myself, before Christmas, to a couple of books,,

 I have been on the look out for this Crochet book for a while,, a bargain at £4.99 from The Works.

 And I undid the crooked crochet blanket from a previous post,, and made a fresh start,, counting as I go. Slow, but steady progress.

PS Don't forget to leave a comment if you want either of the patterns. If needed, I will get my DH to pull names out of a (wooly) hat!!
