Where has the time gone? Oh yeah a little bit of Stray Sock sewing

Tick Tock.... where did the time go? Can't believe its been so long since I posted anything on here! So much has changed in my life these past few years (long story) which I really cant blog about. But everything is going pretty good at the the moment which makes me smile.

I'm still working at Tesco (over 3 years) and sadly to say not much crafting gets done in my life now. Kids, work and home are the most important things in my life at the moment so card making has seriously taken a back seat. Don't get me wrong I'm still making stuff, but not cards etc :(. I seem to have taken up baking.... which I'm seriously enjoying!!! Also have taken to creating 'things' with socks lol!!!!

I got a really cool book off my partner for Christmas called 'Stray Sock Sewing by Daniel' published by David & Charles which is fab. So last night whilst sat doing nothing I thought what the hell I will give it a go! So following the books instructions I came up with this little cutie. I was surprised at how easy it was to make and took just 2 hours 'ish to do.

These little 'things' I made just around Halloween time with my youngest. I got the idea from a book I seen on the internet and made my own little template. Cant say these are made from socks. I had an old pair of jeans that were ripped so they came in handy for the larger one and the small one was made from felt.

This addition to the family was the first'ish! Been trawling through the internet looking for stuff when I came across 'Sock Monsters' well I have to say I was hooked! This 'Little Nipper' was my 3rd attempt at making things with socks and I have to say I was so proud of my little addition. The first 2 were fine but they were 'cute' where as I was trying for something less cute!
