Time flies

Time flies when you're having fun... or have a lot on. Time certainly seems to have gone quickly here over the last few months. I've been busy making things for the Sprite Stitch Swaps (one of which hasn't been received yet by the recipient so I can't post pictures) and life in general.

But what did I make? This year I did both the mega swap and the mini swap. Here's the stuff I made for the mega swap:

There was a Yoshi magnet, a shall with Pokemon charms, a knitting needle case, a towel with a quote from the Dresden Files, some wrist warmers and a beaded Triforce bag. Working with all of those yellow beads was an absolute nightmare! Especially if you spill them everywhere like I somehow managed to do...

As I mentioned earlier, my mini swap gift hasn't arrived with the recipient yet - can't wait to show photos of it though! It was a tough gift to make, but I think it turned out ok in the end.

The good news is that since my last post I've finished the 12 squares for the GAL blanket - now all I need to do is join them together... I've also had a new sewing machine, so expect to see some new sewn items soon! I've also cast on a hot water bottle cover that came in a kit my partner bought me last Christmas. It's starting to get a bit cooler now and it seems to be fairly simple to make. I'm hoping to get it finished over the Christmas break. Speaking of which - I'd better go and finish off all of the little things I need to get done before it's Christmas day!
