Frosty The Snowman

Two weeks ago I had a request from Olly to knit him a Christmas jumper(sweater)!!!! At the rate I work it was never going to happen so I offered to embellish a bought one for him. Christmas sweaters are the latest rage and I shall be taking commissions in readiness for next year. Any takers? Yes that carrot is protruding and I think it is going to have to be re sewn a few times. I may also have to visit him in jail when he gets arrested for indecency.  It has caused such merriment. Practice crochet snowflakes came in handy too along with a tie from a boxful that I have been hoarding. Hexagons for eyes. Well, it just wouldn't be right to have a post with no hexagons would it?

Just leaves me to say wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Have fun.
Love Shirley.x

Strictly Come Dancing Elves

I have been tuning in and reading your blogs, even leaving the occasional comment.  As for sewing, not a lot has been happening. A little something that I made is winging it's way to Sweden but as it is a surprise and hasn't yet reached it's destination I cannot show you. I have made the odd hexagon and crocheted  a few snowflakes, not worthy of showing. I need much more practice in that department. I shall endeavour to TRY and do better next year.
I shall leave you with a little video clip made by my daughter Rachel (clever apps again), hope it raises a smile or two.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas from the Sherratt Elves.
