Now that we are into 2014 – and a happy New Year by the way – I can reveal the gorgeous gifts I was making for the festive season – I’ve been wanting to do this for ages but didn’t want to spoil the surprise for the friends who were receiving the gifts!
I have long admired the beautiful (and free pattern) for Stripey Mitts on the lovely Cherry Heart Blog (thank you Sandra) and decided to make a couple of pairs for Christmas. I think they’ve turned out well.
Let’s hope the recipients liked them as much as I liked making them – I think they did!
Project number two was for a couple of hot water bottle covers. Now I scoured the net for patterns but did not have much success as they were all really specific to the type of hot water bottle, so in the end I made them up – not bad for a first effort!
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas – we certainly did – and I look forward to sharing my projects with you in 2014.
