The PVC cover on my sewing table has done about 5 years service and definitely getting tatty. So treated myself to some new fish themed fabric from the wonderful Sewing Cafe. They are back open after lockdown so great to be able to go in and not just click and collect.
Bought short needles ages ago specifically to try knitting in the car. Never got around to trying them out until last weekend. Knocked up a few hats on the A14, while we were travelling more or less constant speed and direction. Made me feel a bit woozy on the more windy roads though. Optimistic I’ll be able to knit something bigger on our next 8 hour holiday motorway drive.
Another kit I have had for many years finally done… orange blossom will become a bag for a friends birthday
Stitched this bunny cross stitch from Etsy ages ago but could not decide what to do with it. Finally, with the help of an upcycled old towel, became a beach bag
Finally had to throw away my favourite ever slippers. Managed to upcycle the pom poms for some innocent big knit hats though
Found lovely bunny cross stitch patterns by Durene Jones on Etsy. Very quick to sew for some upcoming birthdays
Inspired by my recent free motion embroidery course created a quick little notebook cover as a present
I had a lot of bits of purple yarn left after completing the Nomadic Knits Knit along shawl. Decided to use some of them up designing a range of Innocent Big Knit tea cosies- based on my favorite full sized tea pot styles. These will be Choc Egg filled Easter presents for my girly chums.. since we can’t have a real afternoon tea get together yet due to lockdown.
Free pattern available on Ravely
Have had the Arne and Carlos idea book for a while. Shows you how to make a fabric backed journal. My first attempt a bit wobbly, but perfect for this year’s photos of projects. Hubby made a mark one press for me that was too small, but has just made version 2. So need to get to work on my next trial run.
Poppy Treffrey Spring course week 2. I misread the instructions so bag a bit longer and thinner than intended, but make a great knitting bag for my latest project. Some of the birds a bit more wobbly than intended, but adds to the charm.
