Ah, a much needed day off today. The weather has been lovely and Mr Fixit and I went out this morning to enjoy a bit of the local scenery.
After our stroll along the lake through a small bird sanctuary we went for tea at our favourite tea shop.
After a couple of months of living with my natural hair colour, I’m ready for some fun again! I just need to decide what colour to use.
The Stash to Treasure batwing sweater is growing nicely. Since taking this photo this morning (try not to get confused by the granny blanket underneath it) I have added a few more purple rows and one panel is almost complete. Then I’ll just need to add the last purple section to the other panel and start the finishing process.
A few days ago I had a little play in my quilt cotton stash and identified some fabrics I’d like to use soon! These Indian-themed prints were bought a few years ago from Wool Warehouse in the UK. I made a couple of things for my sister back then because she loves India and I knew she’d like them. I realised I still had quite a lot left so I made these bags – there are two ‘open wide zipper pouches’ from the Noodlehead site, and an ‘origami drawstring bag’ from Minki Kim’s YT channel.
I always have an itch to play in my sewing room these days so I’ll have to earmark Tuesday or Wednesday as a sewing day this week. Maybe I’ll do the housework and other boring stuff on Tuesday and then I can play the next day!!
I have the germ of an idea for my next project…
Slightly envious you have a ‘Mr Fixit’. I have a ‘Mr Bodge It, then get a man in guy’ !! ha ha! On another note, great crafting! Loving seeing the crochet grow.
Nicola, you amaze me with what you do. Organized, focussed ++ Those prints from India – would never know. I finally saw the shoes on the material – too cute. Wrote down those sites for reference. Will I every get there ! Thanks for sharing. (P.S. I love your curly hair – )
