To anyone else this is just a shed, to me it is my haven. Pixie put on the final touches during the week and the exodus from house to haven started immediately!!
I have wanted my own little space for a long time, but as always something else popped up. The shed is 3m x 2m and I can't believe how much I have collected over time. I have also moved some of the boys toys in there and have started 'culling' what we don't need. I have to say, I'm a happy camper right now.
Though I don't feel as if I managed to do much crafting due to the move, I did get to knit this cute little owl from a Handmade magazine. He is only about 3 inches high, but cute as a bug. I am taking him to live in the library. He has a felt nose and felt eyes. Knitted in 8 ply wool, it could easily be made bigger by using a double yarn of 8ply or even chunky wool.
Yesterday Pixie and I went for a trip to the city by ourselves and did a bit of Christmas shopping. We buy locally first but in the city there were some bargains that were worth the trip. It was nice to go for a drive by ourselves, the only one I had to compete with to get a word in edgewise was my hubby. lol. We did drop in to Spotlight on the way back home for some Christmas coloured beads. I was good and put my blinkers on, straight in and straight out. After just organising my sewing shed, I know I have to leave the material alone.
On the knitting front, I have found an adorable pattern to knit using 8 ply wool. I have about 230 stitches on my needles right now and getting along nicely with the pattern.
The things you find when you are having a clean up. I had to empty out the carved chest in order to move it into the shed. What did I find? last year's Easter gift to Heather!!! I knew I put it somewhere.
I quickly made up this little pouch for some gadget my husband has. I can't remember the name for it, but this gadget tells you when you are speeding. Pixie wanted a pouch made for it when it isn't in use. Pretty good gadget actually.
For the rest of the weekend I plan to enjoy my sewing room, do the yucky ironing first and get some pavers from Heather's house. I can't tease Heather on my blog anymore, I've been sprung by one of her spies!!! Ha Ha. Hello Suez. Regards, Anita.
