Autumn is in the Air
This was all I had managed to make in a week where I was on antibiotics which made me sleepy.
So let me show you what I made on Saturday. 7 blue lined doggy stockings
3 green and gold dot lined doggy stockings- these 10 went to a dog charity Open Day and Show on Sunday.
I kept this holly one for my Christmas pile.
15 glasses cases inter-lined in pellon also went to the dog charity.
I finished this cotton cardigan at long last. Thankfully I was onto the button bands and collar when I pulled my shoulder. The yarn wasn't knitting like the one the pattern was designed for so I did a lot of improvising. Also I don't like flappy cuffs when I work so I made those in the round afterwards. They were meant to be decorative like the collar and hem in the original pattern. I had the 3 big vintage buttons in stash.
This rat themed purse is for Daughter. It's a second attempt. I tried to design one in leather but it would have been too snug for her hand. This shape in cotton is a lot wider, so her hand can go inside easily.
Inside I put a little paw themed patch pocket.
Watching a glorious sunset. I'm more than ready for the slower pace of Autumn and the beautiful colours it brings. How about you?
Crabapple Hill Studios have brought out more witch themed stitcheries. Perfect for Halloween displays and sewing by the fireside.
