I haven't blogged in ages. I have loads going on at the moment. Summer hols, exchanges, and other stuff going on in my head.
So, a couple of years ago I took up knitting. I decided that I wanted to learn how to follow a pattern and actually make something. So I did. Now, don't get me wrong, I am no serious knitter and some things just don't seem to turn out right but I'm happy to have a go. I found this pattern and thought I could make a sweet one for my dd.
We'll see what this turns out like....
Yesterday I got a lovely biscornu from Terry through the post with some lovely extras. She sent some threads and some pretty Mary Engelbright notelets. So sweet, Thanks Terry:
I am so resisting joining any more exchanges for a while as i want to get some baps finished and also want to think about starting on Christmas stitching. I was thinking of making some nice stitchy gifts for friends. It is sooo tempting though. There are two exchanges I want to join now - the mattress pincushion and the floss tag one. Oooh I have one day left to decide on the mattress pincushion.
I have sent my biscornu on to my partner so hope they get it soon.
If anyone is interested, Sally and I are going to be starting the Beatrix Potter in the new year and are going to do it as an SAL. I am thinking about setting up a blog for it if there are enough peeps interested. I am thinking about using the Victorian Motto threads that are shown on various people's blogs including Sally's and Vonna's. Here's a linkie to her ebay auctions if anyone wants to take a peek. I just adore the colours and think they would look perfect on the BP sampler.
So with that I will love and leave you all. Have a lovely restful rest of summer. xx
