Which looks so much more colourful now it is filled in - and December...
...a blank canvas. Who knows what the next 31 days will bring!
I will say again what great fun I find this to be, and I love looking back and seeing what happened when over the previous months. So helpful when you have a brain like a piece of sequin waste (in-joke there).
Today I should have been having lunch with the 'Nutty Knitters' group which I recently joined. However I am a bit of a wuss when it comes to icy and snowy weather so I sent my apologies. Our hostess lives up a lane about 12 miles away in the Bedfordshire countryside, and although she did e mail to say the road was passable I am Mrs Cautious these days and full of "what ifs". So I've been moping about thinking what a wimp I am. However to redeem myself here is my second blog in as many days.
Firstly here are my attempts at knitting.
No, I am not knitting for a three legged baby with a split personality, they are supposed to be mini Christmas stockings. Even a wash and a hot press hasn't evened up my stitches! Just be grateful I'm not giving you one of these to hang on your tree when I come round! I am much better suited to the other kinds of needles.
Here are the two little journals I have made covers for, in what I have called distressed patchwork as there are lots of frayed edges.
The embroidery was inspired by the bleached denim marks, I am pleased with the freer designs.
They come with 4"x6" narrow lined journals.
Below is the last purse I managed to finish before the sewing machine seized up. I am not expecting news before the end of the week at least.
This purse is slightly stiffer than the previous ones and I am offering to add a cord to turn it into a little shoulder bag, for when you don't need to carry anything but you bit of plastic and a few coins.
