Time just ran out...

...in the run up to Christmas.

I had seen some pretty knitted tissue box covers on a few blogs and wanted to have a go. There had been ones made to look like traditional post boxes and others that looked like Santa's jacket but I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted.

I still had some balls of the glittery red yarn (although the sparkle doesn't show up in this photo) and set about making the basic box cover...
...and as you can see, that part did get done. The problem was that I couldn't make up my mind how I wanted to decorate it so with all the 'umming' & 'ar-ring' I ran out of time.

Still - with eleven months to think about it, I should come up with something by next Christmas LOL............................................................

Ah that is fabulous, i remember buying a mache one from hobbycraft years ago and painting it with Celtic Knotwork - it took weeks to do!
