Anyway, I digress, back to the stitching. After taking the dog away with us and discovering that she didn't have a towel with her, I've decided to give her some of her own from some old ones found under the bed. This is the first effort:
I got the template from my Cath Kidston Patch book. Now, at least, she has her own towel to wipe her feet on.
I also decided to try and make the girlies their own pe bags for school, after being inspired by a facebook post by the lovely Mandy from over at daisy moon. I found an old pillowcase and some fabric snippets to have a try. I think it would have been a whole lot easier if I had worked on a flat piece of fabric rather than having to navigate it's pre-sewn sides but the 7 year old is very happy with it which I guess is the whole point. Now I've just got another to try to do!
This morning, on the first of my 3 hour 'rest' days, I decided to make a pincushion that was featured on ladybird diaries blog. I don't think it turned out too badly, but I clearly need some more pins to put in it!
I don't know if you remember but I mentioned a while ago starting on something that Pixie had prompted me to try from over at the crafte nook. Well, I'm pleased to say I'm finished!
Yes I made socks! On two needles! I used less than 2 balls of Sirdar Snuggly to make them and they were surprisingly easy. Snuggy winter feet here I come! I think I'm going to have to make some more.
Thank you for all of the nice comments you have been leaving, it makes my day to read what you think of my blog. This is my 50th post! I'm quite pleased with that, and welcome to my new followers too, though I do have to say that today's post makes it sound like I don't have an original bone in my body!
Is it sunny where you are?!
