I opened two beautiful gifts this morning.
They were my eyes.
A good morning to you all! My stash of 'material bits and pieces' got to me this week, so I turned them into things. I took my iron, a thick old towel, a cup of tea, my sense of humour and I camped out in my sewing shed for a sew-a-thon. All these lovely country toned squares had been sitting there for long enough and in desperate need of a pot holder....a creation was made.My most favourite colour of all is red and after scratching around the container full of treasure, I found heaps of reds and made a small table runner.
The fun thing as I looked at each of the fabrics was remembering what else I had made from them. I think that's something we all seem to do. Some pieces have more special moments than others. lol
My talents didn't stop at sewing this week, for the night time creations it was wild knitting. This gorgeous knitted baby cardigan is for a 1 year old and this is my second go at it. I tried a new pattern for raglan sleeves and while I was knitting it I thought to myself it was way too big for that age. I kept going anyway and yes, it was too big. lol It's all good though, I have a cardigan to sell.I'm in love with this cowl, that I've still got on the needles. Another creation using several textured yarns.
A beautiful gift given to me from Elisa.
And inside......the loveliest scents.
A quiet walk through my garden...
Today is my last day of holidays, tomorrow is return to work. I know tomorrow morning I will be a big cry baby, but I also know once I see all the motley cute I work with....I will be fine.
A good Sunday to you all.
