A week, or was it a second

Last Friday I joined Wendy for FNSI, Thanks Wendy for having us all over! I worked on my cross-stitch, in about a month it has to be finished. (help!) Also worked on some squares for the work-shop I'm giving.

This weekend I'm off to a sewing retreat with Sprätthönsen at Fegens vandrarhem.
It's my first time and I'm so looking forward to it!
I'll even try to use my camera so perhaps you'll see some pics next week. Now just to figure out what to bring with me.

Today was a very chilly day at 6 degrees with a nasty wind, otherwise October has been warm and comfortable. Wednesday I was out walking in the woods, before the rain started in the evening, and got some lovely photos.

Mini swap

The theme for the last 12" Mini swap for the year was Embroidery.
I made one for Florence and now that she has got it I can show it to you.
I also made her a pin cushion and a coaster. I'm so happy she liked it all!
Many thanks to Cheryll for organising the swap for us!

Monday I was preparing for a workshop I was holding in the evening, I was teaching how to make granny squares. So had to have something to show, and made a small pouch using granny squares. I now keep my crochet hooks in it.

My weekend starting with FNwF

Friday night I was sewing with a lot of cyber friends, thanks to Cheryll! If you want to see what all the others were up to, go HERE.

I worked on my stitchery and some socks for a little girl, I think I need to work a lot on that stitchery if I will have it ready in time. I started it a month ago HERE.
On saturday I continued to work on the socks and finished them off. I think they're really cute.
We've had a couple of very nice days here, almost summer at least in the sun without any wind. This was my Sunday morning.

The last of September

I know I haven't been very active in my blogging, but at least I'm working on things!

I've knitted a mystery by Torirot. I knew it would be mittens and they turned out great! I finished them today on the last day of September, and where did this month go I wonder.

And when I was invited to a birthday party to J I had to come up with a present.... and it seems like a bottle bag with a bottle of wine is a winning concept so that's what I gave him.

I know it is now October but I started this post nearly an hour ago, the photos gave me a hard time before I could get them where I wanted.
I still count them as September finishes.  :)
