Birthday

I had a lovely birthday with many lovely presents. The main one being a sewing machine. I have never really been a sewist (saw this word on something else - is it a real word? Or should it be sewer, as in where the rats live!).

The machine is still in its box but I am very excited to get started.

On the craft side, I have crocheted two Snoods, one for me and one for a present.

I used a huge crochet hook (15mm) and a lovely chunky wool
I used a pattern from Annaboos House. It was very easy once I got started and very quick. Myopi can make one easily in a couple of hours (with no Small people around).

Hope to show sewing machine in action soon.

Happy belated birthday. It seems all the best folk were born in October :-) Good luck with the sewing and don't be afraid to shout if you need help/advise.
Hugs,

Happy birthday! Those snoods look just the thing for this chilly weather and you've got a fab selection of pressies there! I like the word sewist, definitely better than sewer!!
