A few weeks ago I brought some yarn made out of t shirting on the ball there is a pattern for a bag . Its crocheted using a 8 mm hook but I could only find a 7 mm hook. It looks ok , I think. I really like the broomstick crochet at the top. I had it made in just over 5 hours. fast christmas gift maybe ........

At the November meeting night for Quilting we had a pin Cushion swap. The guide lines were easy to follow . It was to be hand made then wrapped . our names were written on bits of paper and after the meeting we were called out to take one from the box. Mine was not opened on the night because a few ladies were not at the meeting but left pin cushions. I hope the person who got mine liked it.

|Back of my cushion, the two buttons are pressed glass flowers.|
The Parcel I picked was nicely wrapped with a flower decoration on the top. I opened it to find a floral handbag style cushion , when I went to fold the paper I was surprised to find a wheel of pins in the package as well.

I found an e book on line at Ravelry. I started this shawl which will be circular working in segments on the all in one loom. After I had finished the first segment and was part way through the second one I realized that I had made a few mistakes . In the photo below you can see its slightly gathered in the to right hand side and I had made a few purl stitches were they should not be. every row you move a maker one peg on but I must have missed a few moves and that's made it gathered . I have ripped it all out and started again..
