A Little Stranger

Week in Pictures

Hope you had a lovely Christmas break, mine has been wonderful, the best Christmas since i was a little girl.  I’ve been busy seeing friends, family, doing fun stuff and lots of parties, gorgeous foods and drinkies. Very chilled and very awesome. Here’s a few pictures of what i’ve been up to over the holidays :)

Hope you’ve all had a nice week :) Friday signals my pick of the internet for the last 7 days, and what a week it’s been! Stuff here in Hollyworld has been crazy busy, but thats the way i like it!! Lots of exciting freelance projects, loads of parcels to send (my creature scarves sold out in a day and a half, yay!) and lots of fun birthday stuff! Looking forward to a great weekend :D



This is a short and sweet post this week as lots of the things i’ve been up to this week i can’t post pictures of just yet, i’ve been super busy with not so much time for my personal projects. I’ve also been working on a Christmas instructable for Monday that i’m *really* excited about sharing!! :) Also my camera memory card died so i didn’t take any pictures last weekend apart from the ones at Eddie Izzard, woopsie!



It’s been so busy round here so it’s been a while since i’ve done an update on where project blankie’s got to. For those new to the blog (hi!) project blankie is a massive sofa throw i’m making out of individual knitted and crochet’d squares. If you’ve got craft skills, i’d love for you to send me one and i’ll feature it on the blog :)



Now in the shop is this limited run of six one-of-a-kind creature scarves. Get ‘em while they’re hot! Made from high quality fur fabrics and lined with soft polar fleece. Fastens securely with a button. Approx 90cm long, and nice and wide to keep you snug.

All six of these scarves are for sale in the shop.



This weeks Instructable shows you how to make a furry creature scarf. Its really simple to make and has lots of scope for personalising so its great for a last minute gift idea :)

Ooooh its nearly Christmas! Heres my pick of the web for this week, including a little look at my ideal christmas tree :)



Since it got featured on Reddit and Stumbledupon I’ve been getting a lot of emails about my Mario Cross stitch so i thought i’d post a proper picture of it – here it is proudly hung on our living room wall. I cant take all the credit for it though, Jonjo did the sky ;)


This Week

Hang on, how is it December already? Bit of a wake up call that Christmas is just around the bend! Lots of exciting things have been happening this week in Holly-land, here’s pictures of some of it…


I have produced a very limited run of Monster ornaments and Monster ornament kits, only 5 of each. Each of the 5 monster ornaments are different and would look great hung on your Christmas tree. If you want to be the first to know when new items go on sale add me on twitter, or join my mailing list. Also up for grabs are the two ornaments from last Mondays Instructable.
