The heating is on again (well at least at my house), I am desperate to capture all the lovely shades of the trees, and although it is Halloween today, everyone is only thinking about one thing Christmas! It can only mean one thing - it is time to be done with October and move to November. Here is this month's roundup - it is a bumper edition.
- The ones you could do yourself!
I love jewellery and I found it really frustrating that everything is in boxes, I tend to always wear the same jewellery. A pair & a spare has got a solution though, a porcelain jewellery stand! Love the use of the egg cups! I must admit I do like this one because of the colour scheme she chose (blue and white - definitely me!).
- The ones with sewing tips
The Coletterie has great basic tutorial - totally adpated to my level (and you could use the tips as well for the elasticated skirt you are about to make hmmm hmmm). This month is the basic hand stitches tutorial - explaining the obscure names sometimes found on pattern. Whipstitch anyone?
You may also need the blind hem tutorial posted to no big dill - which is full of pictures, so you cannot go wrong (still working on that skirt??).
- The one that will go against my de-stashing drive.
- The freebie one
- The ones that will inspire me to knit more
I am thinking sheep, I am thinking that if Blair from Atlantic-Pacific can get away with it, so can I (well not now and maybe not that many, but soon.. ), or do can Baby MiH (when do they start talking again, and saying no to silly jumpers?).
- The ones for quilters
And to be honest you are going to lack inspiration after following the new seasonal blog hop organised by Kirsty at Quiet Play and Blossom Heart Quilts.
A new book is going to hit the shelves soon a Quilting Life, a handmade home by Sherri of Quilting Life - and you need a Christmas present..
Now that you are all up to date with the October projects, let's bring on November!
