I awoke to a beautiful frosty morning, our first this Winter. I quickly got my jobs done inside and went out in the garden to collect leaves, there are still quite a lot to fall but the job is so much easier when they are not wet. I've filled the green bin yet again, I'm so glad I opted to pay for extra collections this time, it's saved me so much time not having to arrange trips to the council tip every week.
Most of you will have seen my stitched ornaments before but as they only come out once a year it's worth showing them again. This is just a selection of them along with some new glass baubles I bought this year too, this tree is bigger and needed a bit more bling. The Range had a great selection and they were reasonably priced too. I think my favourite is the Santa in the last photo though, he is from The Range too, hasn't he got the cutest face!
I've had some questions about my mitred squared blanket I showed a couple of posts back, I haven't forgotten, I will put a post together for next time and share everything I know about the pattern and how I'm knitting mine, (there are several variations).
I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week.
