My mum bought me a sewing machine as a house warming present and this weekend I finally used it.....here's what I made....
OK, so no actual sewing was involved. But I'd had the idea to make a necklace with the sewing bobbins and realised that I could use the sewing machine to wind the bobbins - oh that was so much easier than winding it on by hand. I then threaded the bobbins onto a silver choker and hey ho - a necklace to go with the bracelet I made for my friend's Christmas.
Today was another day for hibernating as you can see from the view this morning. I did make it to my friends house for a knitting gathering this afternoon but the rest of the day has been spent cosied up inside.
It's been a day of travel chaos here in the UK - Heathrow Airport has been all but shut for 2 days - we are not very good at coping with snow. I do hope that all my friends heading to the airport over the next few days have safe travels. One couple have already spent the day in Edinburgh airport - now hopeful to get to Frankfurt via Zurich tomorrow and another hopes Easyjet have their planes in the right place so she can get home to Munich. Good wishes for safe travels to everyone heading home for Christmas!
I found the igloo in someone's garden whilst walking to my friends - very cool.
