Completed - after all this time. I thought I'd finished it ages ago but a friend urged me to do another few rows, which I did but it wasn't enough. I also ended on a red row and somehow this was wrong. I have started and now finished with an aqua row and I feel it is done now.
A project just started and being done on a 'make up as you go along' kind of way. I bought this stool in IKEA for £9 in the bargain corner. It was only a little grubby, so has had its cover washed. It now sits in front of my chair waiting for its new crochet jumper to be fitted - how it will look I don't know.
You can see a possible bad start here... circle to square. I can do corners - it will be fine. I have some sort of image in my head how it will look - but know it won't!
Something else waiting in the wings is this giant quilt just waiting to be quilted. Is it easy to just do random quilting in a curly kind of way with no guide lines? Or am I aiming too high?
Anyway, that's the plan - it's ready to come on holiday to Southwold in a few weeks.
During my week in Whitstable I started another quilt - not the one I was planning
but another. I took my sewing machine on holiday as M wasn't holidaying with us and the thought of evenings by myself just didn't appeal.
So I started this quilt, I guess it's a cheats way of doing circles - but a darn good one!
I came home feeling very inspired with all my holiday crafting so decided to tidy my sewing table - this is tidy. And under the desk is only a very small proportion of my stash. And yes someone drew on the tailors dummy - I didn't realise when I bought her!!
I need some storage in this room but don't know what. Thinking of those big draw like things IKEA sell that go under the bed (there is a double bed in the room) which would be ideal - may need a few though.
