A Crafty swap and 321...

Not blast off - but I did finish.
It does seem that I may be a little consumed by this red thread colour though.

There are four cards with the 321 number on, two of which I emptied in completing the house project, and there are two brand new skeins waiting to be wound.

(guess I wont run out any time soon!)

Sure I finished by the deadline, but I may need to work this little number again, it is lovely.

Well I think so - anyway.
Thanks Bronwyn for generously sharing this pretty design.

(There is more than one skein of that green, 471 in my possession too!)

Decisions, decisions - green with red or

red with green?

A little leftover piece of ric rac just the right length.

All ready for the NCB Christmas swap Wednesday.

Gratefully received by Cathie.
Lots of fun creative gifts exchanged.

What did I receive?

My gift came  from the talented Ms Curly Pops - a set of her new gift tags, see those scissor pics apparently I need to do some cutting, Cool pack it includes the string for the holes too.
There is also a beady necklace in the top of the pic, that too was part of my gift.
Ooh pretty, thanks Cam.

I made some good progress last night on the second brown sock - back to needles and yarn for me.

Now it is time for me to get back to the reorganisation and maybe even hang a few decorations about if I don't get distracted by another project.

Have a wonderful Thursday and stay cool.

Such a beautiful stitchery. Shhh don't tell anyone but I also have a stash of a certain red lol. Mind you I have been naughty and bought myself a gift of the final 100 skeins of DMC I needed. At .99c it was well worth it too. Whoops where am I to put them when they arrive as my box is full.
