We are enjoying a gorgeous long weekend here in England. I hope the weather is treating all well elsewhere. We went to the wildlife centre yesterday and my husband and older son are going to the football tomorrow, but otherwise we are spending some quality time at home. I for one am enjoying lots of time knitting, a little sewing and have picked up the pencils again.
May is looming, and one of my goals this year was to take part in me made May. I could probably put something together already, but I am hoping to have a few other pieces to be able to add to my wardrobe before May.
So what have I been up to?
Here are Daniel's socks - these were finished last week but this is the first picture.
I have finished one sleeve on the Grass River Tunic and have picked up the stitches for the second. I only have this and the finishing to go on this so this should be ready in time for May
I have made progress on Nasreen and I am hoping this may be done by May as well.
My market bag is nearly done - I just have the rest of the handle to do and then it is done.
I don't have a photo, but I cut the fabric for a Coco by Tilly and The Buttons. I am going to alter this one to turn it into a pinafore dress, which means there is very little sewing to do, so that should be done by the end of the weekend.
I have been recently inspired by a few things to pick up my pencils again - the portrait artist of the year show on Sky Art, our visit to the gallery's in Brighton and a class on Creativebug called artist trading cards. This is a couple that I started with yesterday, I am going to do a few portraits next.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and week.
