I walked past The Gallery at Papercuts today and saw they've got some of my signs out the front! Very exciting 😊. Its a fab little shop where i buy some cardmaking supplies from, so delighted to be selling there now too! There's some great artwork and gifts made locally stocked - check it out!
No, really. It may have been baking for the North East outside today but whilst watching Wales* (come on!!) In the Semi Finals, i have finished the first of what I'm sure will be many Christmas hats.
I merged together two different patterns to complete this. The main body of the hat was from Repeatcrafterme (http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2015/11/crochet-elf-hat-pattern.html), but I used two colours in a stripe and finished the hat with a lovely edge taken from a pattern on bhooked.com (http://www.bhookedcrochet.com/2014/12/05/crochet-elf-hats-entire-family). I also added a bell so you can hear your kids coming and run... and because it's hugely entertaining for the baby!
Im really pleased with the result - i don't suppose there's higher praise than my 3 year old insisting he and the baby get matching ones for Christmas. He will regret that choice when the photos come out at his 18th birthday.
*As I finish this post, it is 2-0 to Portugal. Still time for a comeback!
