Year of Projects Update
Well bauble knitting week has gone very well! However, I will need more bauble knitting weeks to make enough - they were very enjoyable so this is no hardship. This week I shall designate wreath knitting week!
I have also made a little progress on the sock and my second raspberry tart, but no pics as the progress is not noticeable.
I blogged in the week about my new project here. This is my whole outfit project to go to my SIL's wedding. I will add it to my YOP list. I have already bought the pattern for the dress and some fabric to make a muslin.
I have actually got myself ready for an epic sewing session next weekend when I intend to make all of the following fabric pieces into; a wrap dress, a tie top, 2 project bags and the start of a quilt. Well that is the intention!
I also think I have settled on Fragile Heart by Boo Knits as my shawl and I have bought some yarn from Mellifera yarn to possibly make it with - some silky sock.
Well that is about it - my husband is cycling in a charity cycle today so I will be off to provide back up!! Have a good day.

I can hardly wait to see those baubles in a wreath!ReplyDelete
Whoa Nellie! You are my role model! I love how you want to make everything yourself....I am the same way except in a much slower mode. I love your little Christmas ornies and also your patterns for dress and shawl. I've been wanting to make underwear but more substantial than what you showed! LOL! At my age I want as much coverage a s possible! Ha! Ha! I can't wait to see your progress and I'm so glad you added it to your YOP list as I love to see sewing, quilting,cross stitch...whatever!ReplyDelete
Oh, the cake too? I would have to learn that and it's something I've always wanted to learn. You go girl!
Oh, those Christmas ornaments are adorable. I love the little robin bauble!!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh! I am in love with yarn Christmas ornaments. I know what's getting added on to my list for next week.ReplyDelete
You are starting all things! That's awesome. Fortunately I seldom get sewing urges ... especially since I found a dressmaker who makes things cheaper and better than I ever could!ReplyDelete
That little Santa hat is my fave.ReplyDelete
