The busy bee teaches us two
lessons: one is not to be idle, and the other is not to get stung.
-Early American proverb
Good morning to you all! We’ve had such a busy morning already that I thought I would quickly pop in and post. With our temperatures being so hot already in the mornings, it is a wise choice to get as many outside chores done before it is impossible to do so.
The production line was a bit slow this week, due to the heat, in terms of crafting in my sewing shed but I did manage to get some things made.
Here we go......
My knitted garden gnome sits proudly with his shaggy beard. A quick and easy knitting project using left over bits of yarn in 8 ply. Any of you wonder what to do with those unusual yarns you have left over that you can still use for something? This was a perfect choice here for the beard yarn. I managed to use what was left of this funny yarn without having to throw it out.
.......another head band. I think I have enough headbands made as a starter for the coming winter season. My plan for this year is to get ahead craft wise and I’m so far sticking to the plan.
What I have enjoyed about the headbands is: you can use your scraps up
Cast on as many stitches as you like to
cater for all sizes
Add all sorts of embellishments to them
I bought this super little book for Heather the feather’s Christmas gift and I am looking through it now for some ideas. It’s loaded with great fun ideas.
I made this i pad holder using measurements from a friends i pad and will sell this at the markets. I will try my luck there and if it sells I will make more.
And.......I made this little i pod mini carry bag for when I’m at the gym so I can listen to my music and not worry where the pod has slipped while on the treadmill. Lol
I hope where ever you are the weather is treating you kindly....we’re in for a whopping 40C by Mr Weatherman. Hubby has just put chlorine in the pool for today’s swim. That’s where we’ll be.
