I just realized I left you hanging, partway through my All That Jazz cowl and the sashiko project with the green fabric.
Well, both are finished. Here’s what I made from the pieces of denim and green cotton.
That was fun.
And just yesterday I bound off the knitted cowl made from Lion Brand Mandala.
It’s been washed and yanked about every which way to try and even up the stitches a bit. The maroon segued into the blue, so one strand traveled throughout, and then I added contrast with different parts of the same colourway.
I am very pleased with my corrugated ribbing – it’s only the second project I’ve made with that feature.
And today I spent a few hours in my sewing room, accompanied by various podcasts from Kate at The Last Homely House, sewing a bag for a yoga teacher.
Do you like the play on words? Namaste Llamaste! I couldn’t resist it when I saw the llama fabric and buttons at work.
And I can’t believe I used to be scared of sewing vinyl. It sews like a dream.
We’re having a cooler week, thankfully, but there’s still a lot of smoke in the air. A new fire started just south of us two days ago.
It’s a little worrying to see that view from your home. It quickly grew and spread and caused homes to be evacuated in the area. We’re ok here but I have friends who have had to relocate until the danger is past.
There’s an even bigger fire north of us as well that makes this one look like a campfire.
I feel like I have smoker’s lungs now and I’m pining for clean air.
I hope all is well for you guys reading this and that you’re able to enjoy your creativity.
