Just made a watch strap (knitted cotton) & found watch faces at £4 on eBay so now I need to think of people who need new watches :wink:

Also thought of storage jar cosies so I could cover a few different jam jars & call it a range!

I can see Bruno doing some jumping clay baubles too....

Jingle bells jingle bells....

I'm going to try somethings too so I'm in!

Thinking on trying a garland using jumping clay letters , crimbo symbols etc...

Might try making some costumes for presents for littlies...

And I've just bought ring blanks of eBay (me copying fellow crafters ...never....) !

I think most people will be getting framed photos of the boys. That counts, right? One of the benefits of living miles away from your loved ones. :? When is the summer swap due?

It's basically just a long thin piece of knitting so should be easy to make something crocheted.

My watch was £5 off eBay.

I'm going to do one for the niece as its very comfy. Probably too funky for older generation (well my mum anyway!).
