Lots to show this month. Firstly, yesterday was opening day on the Needlecraft Haven Friendship Exchange. The idea with this exchange was that we send a Friendship card and gift, along with two skeins of thread and a friendship themed chart.
I didn't remember to photograph the chart and threads I sent, but this is the gift I sent to Justine - an illustrated handbag mirror for which I made a little felt cosy
It's been rather chilly lately so I knitted each of my daughters one of these warm and snuggly interlaced Celtic scarves.

Finally you may remember Jo won my Shoes/Books/Finishes Competition at the end of last year, and here is the prize I made for her.
It is stitched using Gentle Arts Simply Shaker threads in Schoolhouse Red and Wrought Iron, a lovely dark blue-black shade reminiscent of old ink which I thought was ideal for the look of a hand drawn map, and finished with dark blue faux leather and a tiny loop of Hobbit ribbon that I found on EvilBay. The Lonely Mountain cross stitch pattern I used is available on Etsy here
