Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen,
But give us the determination to make the right things happen.
Where have I been? I needed a break so I had one. Lol. Some time was needed to get a very big knitting project done and every bit of spare time was applied to getting to the finish line. Here is the glorious piece of work I have spent these many passed weeks......
This lovely cradle cover has been knitted in 4 ply and the pattern is from the book Traditional knitting for children and bears. The cradle cover also comes with a pillow cover and both pieces of work are trimmed with a lace edging.
The finished measurement for the cradle cover was 74cm x 66cm. Not that big really is it? Good size for a cradle but the lady was suggesting she would like a blanket size, so........ding ding......I made it again in a larger size, using 8 ply instead of 4 ply. Here it is again almost finished and measuring in at 89in x 89in.....and with pillow cover.
So my friends, that is what has kept me from blogging. Which ever set is not needed can be sold. Yesterday I did manage to make this cool looking cover for my ottoman. I will be taking this to my library for the kids to use. They can throw the cushions over it and have a fun time reading books.
Gotta love that face!
Had a bit of ‘me’ time this morning roaming around the garden. Unfortunately there is nothing much happening flower wise due to our very hot summer.My favourite niece Lisa bought me this cute little welcome sign. She knows how much I welcome visitors.
Well gals, I have a few pair of knitted slippers I need to make before next weekend’s markets. I have had several orders asking for slippers, so slippers they will have.
We have a lovely long weekend here for Labour Day. Labour Day in Australia celebrates workers’ role in contributing towards the nation’s economy.
