Have been trying to do some crafting every day - no matter how tired i am!!! I must admit that once i've got started the old enthusiam kicks in, but then i go the other way and start trying new stuff! There are sooo many things i want to do - and when i look through some of my books i just wonder when i'm ever going to have enough time!!!
I saw a pattern for the above scarf so just had to start it - in my favourite yarn - KSH!
Then i decided to sort out my unfinished projects - the above quilt being one of them - i put it together early last year but had not got around to adding backing and wadding - so have now done that and then, unfortunately i decided to machine quilt - god knows why as i always hand quilt - well i should have left well alone - i do not like what my sewing machine has done!! However as it is just for me i have decided to hand quilt the sashing and make the best of a bad job!! If nothing else i have learned something from this experience, neither I nor my machine are ready for machine quilting - i need lots more practice!!
Yesterday some yarn arrived - yay!!! Its for my crochet blanket - have so far done 36 squares and am probably going to do another 20 or so!
The next thing i started - this afternoon!!! - is something for a swap organised by Trashy - but i can't tell you what it is as she is my swap partner!!!! But here's a peak!
Well i hope you are all having a good week in spite of the weather - although yesterday was lovely, blue skies and sunshine, if a bit cold! At the moment it is absolutely chucking it down and i don't think Molly will appreciate a walk - especially as she looks so very cosy!!!
