Caught up with TheFriends last week.
Had a lovely time with Miss Glenda, who is winged at the moment and can’t join in the stitching fun, but before being winged, she was having a little tidy.
Using washi tape….
…to decorate jars for sorting and storing bits and bobs. Don’t they look great?!
(Miss Glenda is a big contender for the Miss Efficiency and Sorted Award!!). Glenda also found these drinks – which one do you think she bought for me?!
And spent a delightful day in front of Mrs Mac’s fire, chatting and stitching…..oh, no I wasn’t, I was crocheting. In one afternoon I crocheted up another two balls of the Lincraft Bamboo and finished my second cowl. A ripple one this time…
and that nice green cardi, I hear you asking? It’s what I bought on my weekend away at Alexandra. Want a better look?
I just love the scalloped edging!
Miss Helen has been crocheting too and in one week made 4 crocheted cowls!! One has been given away, one, in a most serendipitous manner, goes perfectly with her new coat
and there are two more!
Helen has caught the crochet bug quite badly, me thinks, ‘cos if that’s not enough, Helen’s started another crocheted rug!!
There was some show and tell on the fabric front from Helen too. Yummy!!
Mrs Mac’s granddaughter, little Miss M – who is really getting quite tall at 8, but she’ll always be our Little Miss M! – is learning to knit!! How exciting!!
A family friend is teaching her and we’re all so pleased with her progress!
Miss Helen was one of the winners in my recent give away, so we had the official presentation! (The others have been posted out)
I don’t usually put people’s faces in this blog, but Miss Helen was quite insistent – and very excited to have won something!
Not much sewing on this post, but it is Winter, and we do love yarn as well as fabrics!
Happy stitching (or knitting, or crocheting!!)
