Christmas treats

Holiday greetings everyone!!..
Hope you all had a wonderful and restful time, I know I did.
I had some fantastic gifts this year, I have been very spoilt, here are a few of my favourites...




Some beautiful Cath Kidston goodies and a book that I have had my eye on for many months.
By boxing day I could stand it no more and had to have a go at some of  those fantastic motifs, I decided on triangles.
Nine triangles later and I had some lovely bunting.



I'm not over struck on the colours I used as I was just using what I had spare.


Not the best photos I know, I was struggling to get a decent photo as I was on my own and couldn't find anywhere to hang it, the weather doesn't help much either, so grey and dismal.
Here is motif number 2...



....more bunting maybe, I can feel a trip to the wool shop coming on, bright colours needed.

One last photo to share with you, this is a last minute christmas gift that was finished christmas eve.


Hope you all have a wonderful new year ... speak soon xxx

I love your Christmas treats! I got 100 flowers to knit and crochet - I was far to busy on boxing day still stuffing my face! You must be a speed demon with a crochet hook. I like the bunting, the colours remind me of autumn.
