Did you start and/or finish something new in July for our 6 and 6? I did! (Are you surprised??)
In the last issue of Molly Makes that I’ve bought was a set of squares and a booklet on how to use them (let’s be honest, I bought the magazine because I liked the look of the fabrics!)I’d bought some linen from Alice In Fabricland which was just right for the task, and a little while later I had a sweet zippered bagperfect for holding my growing collection of crochet hooksAnd speaking of crochet, you may have noticed a couple of posts recently where I’ve been crocheting a blue and white ripple from Lucy’s pattern. It’s a gift for a friend who is having her first babe and I took a pic of it just with the first two bordersas I didn’t know if I would have time to do the final border before this post went out, but I did, and it’s finished! Now all packaged up ready to be gifted.
After our trip to the Show, Helen asked if I had any ideas for the fabrics I purchased…….and I do……..
I was very taken with the fat quarter pack “Sketch Book”, Australiana without being kitsch;loving the bright sun, telegraph poles, the magpies and sulphur crested cockatooswhich become Major Mitchell cockatoos on the grey backgroundand the seeds/flower headswhich go so well with the Reece Scannell paneland, inspired by Linda’s recent foray into Flying Geese and my own with “Woodlands”, will have this sort of feelSo looking forward to spending more time on this project.
August is the month for a UFO (and I must check my list and do Something on it!!), but in the meantime, Anne and I would love to know what you’ve been up to in July.
