.....no silly, not real ones!!
I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but this year I have I have been teaching myself to crochet, with the help of Stitch 'n'Bitch - it's a book!! Come November I had just about progressed from scarves, mobile phone holders and purses so thought I would make snowflake bunting to give as Christmas presents. After much effing and jeffing, and copious amounts of yarn I finally cracked it and managed to complete seven strings!!
Here is the one that is on my kitchen dresser
Better get my thinking cap on and decide what "alternative" to papercrafting I will have a go at next year. Saying that, I was looking for something the other day and discovered some aged cross stitch magazines, complete with unopened projects still attached (shame on me!!) so I may start with those.
For now I am off to play at these challenges
