... that it takes TWICE as long to put everything back after decorating! I have to .. sort.. and re-organise.. and decide what the heck was I keeping that for?..... lol x at this rate the shelves and cupboards in the front room will still be empty when the family arrive ... mm maybe then THEY will put it all away!!!.. now there s a thought xx
Do you remember I made a cot quilt for a baby born 12 weeks premature? .. well that was 12 weeks ago... and she is going home to-day (fingers crossed x)She will need oxygen at home and constant monitoring .. but she will be at home and mum and dad are SOOO excited x
I finished my latest shawl .....
I really like it with the stocking stitch x I don't think I told that I am using this..
....book. ... honestly the model must be the size of a 9 year old for the shawl to be that big on her!!! .....ANYWAY .... while I was making it I was thinking about my mate Sue.. remember I made the pink sparkly shawl for her up-coming BIG birthday... well my brain did a bit of overtime and I am giving her 50 presents for her 50th birthday!!.. her birthday is 16th December .. so that makes 10 days to Christmas .. SO ...5 presents a day for 10 days ... you still with me? lol x
... she loves pink and anything to do with African animals .. hence the wonderful tissue paper I found lol x...ANYWAY... I had this FUN wool in my stash..
....that I never knew what to do with (OR ....why I ought it ... am I the only one? .. surely not!!)
SO... I turned it into a shawl (WHAT else .. I seem to have a shawl obsession at the moment!!)... it will suit her and has made up the right number of presents ...
....this one is not from the book... but is a free download from Ravelry...
YES !!!.... garter stitch .. but it worked out well for this wool x
OH WELL! Back to sorting "stuff" into its rightful place ... carpet going down this week so I need to shake the old tail feathers and get going x
