Ooh, it's been a long time hasn't it? Shall I give a multitude of reasons, or shall I just get straight on with showing some of the things that have been keeping me busy? Well aside from family, work, and general life that is!
Plannig lot's of projects using vintage fabric and bargain yarns:
|Rowan Purelife organically grown 100% wool natural plant dyed only £1.50 per skein here but very limited now|
|Ebay bargain - over 2m of pretty barkcloth fabric|
Sirdar Click aran £1.39 per skein from the same place - love this shop, and it's not too far away for a personal visit either.
Crafting gifts for lovely mama's:
Knitted bamboo facecloth, soapbag, cross stitch trimmed scented sachet, and a trim for the carryall.
Starting on the christmas gifting:
|Knitted dolly for Heather with removable clothes, just a couple more outfits to make.|
|Knitted cardi for Sophie with yet more of the bargain Sirdar Click|
Sewing pretty cushions:
|Enjoying patchwork and getting to grips with zips too.|
Preparing for winter:
|Granny stripe blanket 200cms wide, 110 treble clusters, 50cms high, another 130cms to go. And the edging.|
Oh yes, I've been a busy crafting mama lately, with lot's more makes all jostling to show themselves off.
Sorry it's only a flying visit but maybe the changing weather will mean more time snuggling inside with the hooks and needles, and lot's more idea's to share.
