Figgy Pudding

A few years ago, I made some figgy pudding Xmas decorations, and gave one to everyone I knew as a gift. I made too many, and had at least eight left over. What can I say, I got carried away in the making! They’d been sitting in my Xmas-Things box, languishing…

Until…

I thought of selling them at the cafe in my local woodland, to help raise funds for the community kitchen garden I volunteer in. Well, these sold quickly, so I decided to crochet a few more, and do some stash-busting in the process. How annoying that to get rid of stash, I had to get hold of some more yarn! Does anyone else ever have that problem?? I’d run out of white and now have a surplus of that – at least I have a lot less of the brown. And I had to get more toy stuffing, but I’m thinking of making a toy for my friend’s three year old anyway, so it will come in handy..

Oh boy, did these puds take me longer than I’d remembered! I was up until 1am trying to finish them, and still had to put in a few extra hours worth this morning – good thing I’d had a job cancellation!

Hope they all sell, and rake in some pounds and pennies for the garden!IMG_3091

  1. I find stash busting often requires new yarn…those are sweet!
