Busy Bee is me !
What a morning, what a week so far, phew !
Had to rush off to pick up a sewing machine from the menders this morning, so was a couple of minutes late opening up. Just managing a quick coffee and a couple of Ferrero Rocher (thanks Eva !) I really Like FR, something really neat about them and I can fit a whole one perfectly in my mouth - may have to have another one.....
Anyhow, thank you to everyone who came along to our random craft night on Tuesday, they are always brilliant fun and of course it's totally random as to what people bring with them and who turns up.
Yesterday I managed to finish of the kimono I cut out a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it, wearing it today in the shop, here's a photo which doesn't really do it justice and I look a bit of a dope, but here goes, you'll get the idea
Another busy night last night, we had our first ever 'Sew Along with Jo' and the shop had a really lovely creative vibe going on, Jo demonstrating how to start the process of making our cocoon coat. Everyone has now gone away to do their homework before we reconvene in two weeks time.
Already thinking about my next sewing project, my head is always buzzing with ideas, these lovely fabrics came in today, what do you think ?
I've also been crocheting away ferociously making the lacy jumper which some of you are making as well
I love the way it's working up. I have finished the back and a sleeve, front and the other sleeve started....
You know what ? it's so lovely to be making something which isn't a blanket, I love making blankets and always have one on the go, but to make something so small and twee which I know will be finished quickly is really refreshing.
I now need to rush home to walk the whippet !
