FO :: More Christmas Gifts

Hello, my dear friends!

What to say…? Upseting events are occuring around Europe lately and it seems so stupid writing about crafting in these days but I’m strongly covinced that a way to fight those who are hurting us so badly is to not stop living our every day life! We can sit down and talk about the political situation which had brought us to have terrorism in Europe all day and night long but I do not see a solution in that now!It seems too late to me…  Instead, I suggest to respect more ourselves, to love our family and friends, to try to protect them in the best way we are capable of and hope that our politicians will find a way to face and solve the terror threat as soon as possible. God, we are living in the 21st century and still fight each other!! How stupid this is!!!

But, please!!! Let’s go back to craft now!

I have finished off three more Christmas gifts.

I asked my Big man if he would like me to sew a blanket like this for his nephew too but he wasn’t sure if his sister would like it… so I sat down at my computer and find on Ravelry this nice pattern…. I’m not a big owl fan but I liked this one and,after have been given the blessing by my BM, I knitted it…

I will let you know after the winter holidays if this creature will be appreciated or not. In the meantime, the owl is continuing to sleep in my crafting den 🙂

Another scarf is ready!!! Yippee!!! This one is for my SIL husband 🙂

Not bad… I like this scarf, the garter stitch is so simple and versatile and so beautiful!! The yarn is a nice washable merino and this dark blue shade is so manly! Even my Big man likes it 😀 😀 😀 But my favourite is still this one… 🙂 🙂 🙂 Maybe because it fits so well my companion….

The last thing I’d like to show you is the below one…

….a detail of an embroidery…. And that’s all for now… I will not talk about embroideries until Cristmas…. because my friends will receive embroideries for Christmas,that’s why… I will just show a detail from time to time ….

So… now it’s time to wish you a nice and peaceful day! There’s one more scarf to knit, as also a pair of socks and another blanket to sew… and more more more… better if I go beck to work!!

Love

  1. I adore the owl, but he looks very happy where he is, how can you bear to part with him. Nice embroidery, lucky friend. I agree about the importance of carrying on and not being fearful. We will celebrate Christmas! Have a great crafting weekend. I will.

  3. Ha ha! Love the owl in his reclining pose on the ironing board! Great scarf, although my favourite is the two-coloured cable one you made which is just stunning. Good to see you are using your pin cushion too:)
