The start of the Mario blanket!
It's going to be huge!
I will definately need to order more blue wool!
Praps I should have made my grannies four rounds instead of five!
|Got paranoid about my yellow jaw after having all my wisdom teeth out.|
|Went to the boys school Open Night where Oscar though he might like to learn the drums. Um, no.|
|Stood in line at Medicare for 20 minutes. Realised I did not need to be there and should have gone to my private health fund instead.|
|Had Poppy Jim over from Tassie for a quick visit. He brings chocolate hence Matilda's lovely smiley face.|
|Picked up the boys from school in this weather.|
|Came home to find a certain young lady asleep in the beanbag.|
|Went to the Hairy and should have realised that when he started shaving my neck it meant that it was a little shorter than I wanted!|
|Made a super cute 'Bunting' skirt!|
|Started the Mario crochet blanket.|
(all photos are quite lazily from Instagram)
|Did everyone spy this lovely cushion in Mollie Makes?|
This is a lovely easy granny pattern from this lovely lady. I absolutely adore the granny covered lamp she has made that goes perfectly with her cushion!
|I'm using 8ply Moda Vera pure wool from Spotlight.|
|And I have almost finished weaving in all these little ends. (I find something oddly thereaputic about it actually!)|
I'll be gifting this to a friend in the next week or so, so I hope it turns out alright!
I promise to locate my real camera and get a good photo of the finished product!
|Spotty t-shirts for the boys to wear to a wee girly friends Spotty party.|
|Grab spotty fabric, cut out big circle spots, sew them on a plain t-shirt. |
Spotty Party Ready.
|Pale blue spots on one side....|
|Navy blue spots on the other.|
Will it be overdoing the whole Spotty theme by pairing this with navy spotty leggings and a nay top with pale blue spotty
|And what does one do when you stuff up the binding on the bottom of the skirt?! The binding didn't catch both layers of the fabric so then I had to add that fancy zig zag stitch to fix it up. I'm going to pretend it was on purpose if anyone asks.|
|This one's a special order for a friend...|
Little Red Riding Hood fabric from Spotlight.
|And the other side - Lisette fabric from Spotlight too.|
|And another reversible number...|
Dolly Clothing fabric from Spotlight too.
|And the navy blue from the Lisette range.|
I'm thinking of making a few of these reversible numbers and maybe selling them at a little market later on this year. So far I've only ever really made things for people I know and my own little poppets so the wee quirks (errors!) in each one have not really been an issue. I might have to smarten up my sewing skills!
