I remember that I MAY have decided for some reason that now is unrememberable to commit to a Handmade Holiday this year!
I have as it turns out 28 presents presents to buy, oh wait I mean MAKE and I have 17 days in which to do it – and that’s not including 50+ cards. But as per the well known book and Lorna’s blog I’m not panic-ing! (I have just met Slartibartfast in said book – it’s slow going because I don’t know if I’ve said but I have 28 presents to MAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEE!)
It’s not as bad as it looks as 11 of the presents are for pets. So anyhoo I have extracted my digit and this is what I’ve done so far…
The pattern was from the aptly named Fishbone Crochet Pattern from Stripeyblue. They are fun and quite quick. Obviously since people who will be getting gifts from us (that’s B, Buddy and I – Buddy probably being potentially more help than B) I can’t say who is getting what – however I wonder if the mother in law would like a crochet fish bone?
So the current Handmade Holiday stats are
Made – 5/28 with 17 days to go!
And here just because I think it’s lovely, is the view out the front of our house this morning…
