I challenged myself to use all my sock yarn. I managed these pairs this week. There wasn’t enough yarn left for another whole pair so I started making some Leonie Morgan hexagons from all my sock scraps Slowly they are making a blanket.
There are also some charity makes such as more lined bags, a couple of dried rose peal sachets, and 9 cup mats.
My pond has some 30th Anniversary plants now. We bought 4 salvias and a lavender. The others I already had.
A V for Vendetta mask pre- firing. Fingers crossed that it will survive to be a present for son.
It feels like I'm forever catching up here in Blogland. I've only just reclaimed my craft room from Son as he was turfed out of his room for re-boarding the floor, sound insulating it, putting ceiling lights into the room below, adding more sockets to it, and then finally redecorating it. He moved back into his room last night. It is the first room just as we want it, in the cottage. Just to complicate things I had also arranged to paint Hubby's office walls as he was away for a week. No more Barbie pink for him! He has orchid white just like his old office. It is a creamy white, so looks much better.
I am shattered however, so taking some time to sit and share the latest makings. Many are yarn based as son had the craft room sockets.
I've set myself a couple of new crafting challenges for the year. What you see is a bone nalebinding needle and a shuttle and cards for tab…
This week I can share the tree mittens I made last week as my friend has received the pair I was able to make her from the leftovers of my own.
I can also share the cotton drawstring rucksack I’ve just finished. I had to buy an extra ball of white crafting cotton for it.
Most of the time has been spent on a Leonie Morgan 7” hexagon block called Grandma’s Motif. I ran out of dark grey so used up the rest of my dark green. Then I ran out of pale grey, so used up the rest of my white stash. When plain white ran out, I used sparkling white. With only 4 blocks to go I ran out of denim blue, so a scrap of teal blue stepped in. The border used up all the green and sparkling white. A great stash buster! The size and shape means it can go on a table, be a tv blanket, or wrap around as a shawl. Useful!
My wrist is still recovering, these things take far too long now I’m older! I’ll get back to fabric as soon as I can. Am I the only one who has fallen in love with the coat from “The Guernsey Li…
