Christmas chores

Some eight years ago cross-stitching was my only hobby. Happy days!
Now with all weaving, spinning, sewing, and other beautiful crafts, I find less and less time to cross-stitch. But Christmas is coming and I should get busy. As per my long lasting tradition November and December are dedicated to producing a fresh pack of holiday decorations.
I need to pick one Snowmen ornament for November and One Victorian home for December.
Which one to choose?...

Spinning Wensleydale yarn turned out to be less fun than expected. I know now I am too young as a weaver to cut corners and... taking your wool everywhere in hot weather may have some negative consequences.
And with my cotton spinning project brining so much pleasure, finding extra time for wool spinning can be rather difficult.

Tired of loops

After two loopy cloths got bored and decided to try something different - hand manipulated 2x2 twill lines. 
On the warp I have did not work well.
Next week - back to loops.
