Ha, lace doily and all!! After much perseverance and really trying hard, my high hopes wrap for a chilly day was made and it has been keeping me snug and warm since.
With no sign of my crochet addiction abating, I started on a new blanket, not that I knew what this was going to turn out to be a blanket, as I purchased the wool on impulse on a grey day when colour was most needed. Et voilà, inspired by Lucy's granny stripe blanket.
I was a little unsure about the colours, which are much brighter than what they appear to be, but they are growing on me. Little J likes them so it shall be his blanket.
However, this addiction to crochet must be tempered, even if ever so slightly, to allow space for other pressing matters.
I wouldn't quite call it sewing but I loved making this rag wreath which was done in a jiffy. A great idea from Bunny Mummy
These are some of my own makes:
Antique fabrics, some new ones, embroidery and bits of anything I can get my hands on really.
and a new pencil holder for my Princess. Just a clean tin, photocopied fabric and some glue.
Some sewing soon, especially as I have signed up to the Felt Fairy's A Monthly Make 2011.
Back soon. xxx
