Yes, still here although I haven't been here very regularly of late! I really must get Instagram for when I can't get time to blog - it really is a must and top of my 'to do' list for the New Year hopefully :)
Here's our cuddly festive Robin which comes out every year without fail - he always gets placed somewhere around the home at this time of year . . .
He used to tweet when you squeezed his tummy but I think he lost his tweet some time ago - never mind, he still looks cute!
I've been a little busy for the last month or so since I got back online after the laptop crash - ooops! After putting my Etsy shop back online I made a few unexpected sales which was lovely! I thought I should build on that and made a few more items to replace the stock I sold. One of the items came from a little doodle of a Robin redbreast . . .
All very festive, hehe :)
I'm enjoying going with the creative flow and just making things I enjoy!
On the personal front I came across THE 'go to' scarf pattern for men (and women!). I always find it difficult to find a 'manly' scarf pattern but I think this one is just perfect and so simple! You have to try it!
I made this one for my son - the cat tried to get in on the act by 'helping' . . .
how long??? . . .
It's a lovely stretchy scarf which would look great in a muted colour for men, but I just used an oddment of multi coloured chunky yarn for my son at Uni - I think he might wear it for fun if nothing else! I'm knitting a bright pink one for myself now :)
Well, we are not having festive weather here in the Outer Hebrides - it's more like Spring! Here's how it looks today from the back window . . .
Well, I hope everyone has a lovely festive season - a time to eat, drink and be merry! I plan to do all three :) :)
Merry Christmas from the Outer Hebrides!
See you in 2017,
