Knitting beanies and gloves

Fingerless gloves great for keeping my hands warm but I can still use my phone and iPad. Also made a beanie. Busy adding a scarf to the set. Love this Lion brand yarn. Made my daughter a set too.

They have a variety of different colours to choose from too.

While meandering…..

I came across this cute little shop 

The lady was so friendly and explained to us all about her weaving business.

So interesting as many years ago we did this weaving my sister in law Joyce and I. We had the guys make us frames and we patiently weaved and tied our wool. We made lots of baby blankets. Now this new concept is so much better and Sue teaches how to do it. Here is s link to her business.

Christmas 2017 our traditions

Only October and I am ready for Christmas. We have two new additions this year with Luke born in January our first Great Grandchild baby to Kayleigh. Ariel born 28 July is our youngest Grandchild. So had to add their placemats and bells. 

Every year we hang the bells on the tree before lunch oldest to youngest

I give each grandchild a Christmas decoration. This year we decided on a photo. I have added two photos to each ball.

We also give out suckers to the family member that has made us laugh with their amusing things they have done during the year. A few members get the suckers regularly… just saying … not mentioning any names. šŸ˜³

So with the familygrowing 17 this year. I have to be organized as summer is a busy time and I would rather be stand up paddle boarding than sitting inside.  Do you have traditions ? They make our Christmas so much fun and full the room with laughter.
