A little treat

My Husband wanted a book for a night school course he was doing so that we got free postage I just had to treat myself.

I like making small things as they are finished quicker, the pincushion book will allow me to practise my crochet and give me a finished object. I just love the knitted mice in Arne and Carlos's book.
I have a ornament finish for myself this month. My Husband cannot understand my fascination with making Christmas ornaments throughout the year I just love making them, I may need a bigger tree this year as I plan on having 12 new ones as well as any exchanges I receive.

The ornament is the Merry Skater from the Little House Needleworks "All Dolled Up" stitched on a grey/blue linen with DMC threads and embellished with beads.
