Woodland Draft Excluder - Betz White

Well been very busy making things, have attempted the Woodland Draft Excluder out of Betz White's book Sew Green and I have to say it was great fun to make and very eco friendly. I simply used all the scraps of fabric that I already had in my stash and an old pair of cordoroy jeans. I loved making the snail with wool felt. What do you think?

January 2012 Intentions

(Above random picture of bread making session recently)

Well after a long, hard think I've decided to publish some intentions for 2012 because I thought if I don't give voice to it then it won't happen, so here goes:

* Complete my Woodland Winter cross stitch picture (it's huge and am not even a quarter of the way there yet);
* Go swimming every week
* Go for walks each day
* Finish knitting another stripy blanket for daughter (nearly there with it)
* Learn a new craft
* Read more books
* Sell or give to charity unused items in house
* Try and be more confident and challenge myself more

There phew... that feels better to get that off my chest...
