Christmas Goodies

This gorgeous chunk of BFL came from Natalie of the The Yarn Yard and is called "Christmas 2007" autumn reds and oranges with a bit of mossy green thrown in.... not sure what it's going to be yet but for now I'm quite happy to pet it!!!


Next up is a selection of embroidery books including "Embellish & Stitch" by Maggie Grey and the late Val Campbell Harding. Two pamphet books by Jan Beaney & Jean Littlejohn, otherwise known as "Double Trouble" "Red" & "Embellish & Enrich". The final book as you can see is "Silk Shading" by Clare Hanham. I do like Silk shading and have had a few classes with tutors trained at the Royal School of Needlework and one of my promises to myself is to do more in 2008.... so thought this would help blow the cobwebs away...


From my friends Anita & Kath a pair of lacy socks and "Fan & Feather" scarf and a Knitty calendar

Two more fibres, this time from The Yarn Wench "Twilight" & "Whirlpool" colourways

and finally a reference book on spinning...

That is a lovely pile of presents :)

Have you a spindle or wheel to spin with?

Next lace? I am still in love with 'That little Scarf' one day soon. :)

Have a lovely 2008 LittleBerry :D

Nice haul--the colors on the BFL are spectacular! I didn't know you did embroidery...do you ever show any on your blog?

You really got some lovely gifts! It will be fun to watch the burst of creativity that is sure to result from all this bounty. Have a great New Year!

What a lovely haul. Especially like all the lovely spinning fibre! Yummy! I had expected to get a little as a gift, but I didn't, so I will have to go buy myself some now, I think. :-)

Be sure to show us what you make from that loveliness!
