Wet-felted Cones - also for the winter fayre.

My new love - and Crafty Saturday

Having sent out envy looks a long time for a new dual feeding sewing machine, I was thrilled finding this Walking Foot.Link So now my old Bernina is transformed and sewing in velvet etc a pure joy. I'm totally in love with my new little gadget. Halleluja!

Yesterday we had 35 babies, children and parents in our house making wonderful craft for our school's Winter Fayre that will take place 6th December.

The children had a ball, dads got all dusty from the wood works and the rest of us were covered in wool, felt, threads, bells etc.

Half Term in Sweden

We had a lovely time visiting family and friends in Sweden. But however I try, there is never time to see everyone and do everything I want to do when I'm back home. But thanks to all of you we did manage to see, including all my cousins who came to our reunion. I had a great evening (even though I had to see most of you beat me in bowling...)

Did make it to Eks Lilla Bod where I got some yarn for slippers for me and the boys. Yes, they will be felted soon...

Back home, Elliot one morning showed me he learnt finger-knitting.

Beside preparing for our schools Winter Fayre, I've made some cushion covers for a new interior design shop that will open in West Hampstead, London within short. I'll be back with more about this later.
