I’m usually cheap and prefer free patterns over paid, but sometimes it’s worth paying a few bucks for a good pattern.
Looking at the designer’s pattern photos, I realise I forgot to embroider his nostrils!!
But I think he looks good in rainbow stripes.
So I am back to zero active WIPs, though I do have an ongoing dishcloth project and of course I can’t forget that I have four baskets of yarn downstairs earmarked for sweaters. Patterns yet to be decided.
After my first bowl cosy turned out to be a big disappointment, I went on to make another with two solid pieces of fabric.
Hmph, sadly my topstitching was crap and any ideas I may have had for making a bunch of these were dashed on the rocks. Bowl cosies and I have broken up!
Mt Fixit and I are using them, though, as they are handy when you want to have a hot bowl in your lap.
We had a bit of a flood in the kitchen over the weekend. The Berkey countertop water filter was overfilled (son #1 filled it then Mr Fixit topped it up without realizing it) so by the morning water had leaked across the counter and onto the floor and had, rather unfortunately, soaked two bags of flour.
What do you do in that situation? Use the damp flour to make bread, of course. I ended up with five fresh loaves from the wet flour bags which I think could be considered a win!
A more successful sewing project was this pair of PJs made with some fleece-backed knit fabric from the store I work at. Super-easy to make and they will be perfect for winter nights.
