Journals are not my thing. I have nothing at all against journals, I just never in a million years would have thought I would be making journals.

But I am now! And aren't they beautiful?  Can't wait to begin using them!

Ok, I just had to share this! Jan is at it again - making coasters and has posted a great little tutorial for making them with fabric strips.

Jan and I both think this is just the greatest craft for kids. Easy for little fingers. And even if they miss a warp here and there it is still beautiful!

This is my beautiful new spindle and wool - part of the Learn to Spin Kit I treated myself to for my birthday last month.

I found a free pattern on WEBS recently for a Christmas Stocking and decided to knit it for the Christmas Stocking giveaway in December.

Including a practice swatch to satisfy myself that the pattern really would work with all those slipped stitches, this is my progress so far!

Trust me, the stitches are much straighter than they appear in places.
