Thank you to anyone who has read so far and for the comments of encouragement. I am determined to get to grips with this one day. I thought Father Christmas had granted my wish for a camera but it turned out to be an iPod, which was a great present but won't get me any photos on here anytime soon. I will be holding out for my birthday in March now unless I win one in a competition before then.
As for what I have accomplished on the crafting front since the last time; well I've made a knitting needle case, a sewing needle case, a quilted patchwork bag for my daughter, a felt pin cushion, a chef's hat for a friend's son and a crocheted bath mat out of t-shirts. Quite a variety when I look at it together like that. Alongside this I have been attending my quilting club for which I have made a table mat and coaster set for the Christmas challenge, a couple of blocks towards a quilt and continued with my hexagons for another quilt. These last 2 projects are going to be very slow and ongoing.
That list doesn't sound much for 8 months does it? There must be some more that I can't remember at the moment!!! Either that or I don't have as much free time as I thought.
I'm going on a skiing holiday in March with a group of 14 and am in the process of knitting a hat each for them. I've done 5 so far and they only take a couple of evenings each so should get done in time. (BTW - I will not actually be skiing. I went once and had a bit of a 'baptism of fire' which put me off somewhat I don't feel as though I'm missing out though and will enjoy the holiday regardless as I'm not the only one who isn't skiing).
