Last week you may remember seeing the Sock Doll book on my desk. Lots of you said to make sure I showed you the ones I made so, of course, I had to get cracking and make some!!!
On top of my machine is Ziggy Zebra made from two of the socks you see in the middle of the picture.
In front of the machine is Meow - I gave him to Wipso's GD little P. and she loved him!
I now have a box with left over bits of socks which I have to save for ears etc!!!!
The little pink book was sent to me from Stitch magazine as my name was drawn as a lucky winner!!
It's called Stitch Divas and is written for youngsters to encourage them to make, create and decorate. The ideas are well set out with clear instructions for lots of simple, quite funky ideas. It's a fab little book which would make a lovely Christmas gift.
Below, you can see the gorgeous card and gift sent to me by the lovely Paula. Knowing how much pain she is in, I can only imagine how long it took her to make and I send a huge hug and a big, big thank you. They are beautiful and I will treasure my little picture.
I put my fruit to soak over night in sherry and have all my ingredients ready. ( They were on special offer this week at my local supermarket). So if you can smell that gorgeous, buttery baking aroma as you read my blog you will know what it is! (Nigella's recipe)
Right - I am off to Julia's blog to put my name on Mr Linky - see you all later I hope.
