One of the unexpected joys of having sewing here was that I could use my sewing machine (there are too many of us to fit machines at Christine's) so I got to finish this for Hannah for Christmas. It will be filled with little bits and bobs for her embroidery.
Project is "Patchwork pouch" from www.modabakeshop.com
Then I got daring and cut this long piece of experimental weaving up and zig zagged it to make a bath mat which was edged with leftover binding. A very satisfying project as most of the wool came from Ingrid's great destashification at Kathy's retreat last year. This really was a "something from nothing" project and I love how it turned out. Now I am kind of itching to go and buy new blue and green towels!
Being able to sew lengths of weaving together opens up a whole new world - I am no longer restricted to scarves!
After the girls went home I sewed in the ends on Evie's ear flap hat so I can get these in the mail to Ness this week.
I think there might be one of these for each of my kiddos in their stockings this year as Hannah and Maddie both loved them.
So all in all, a very productive day here. Now I want to cast on an evening shawl in this beautiful "Paris" polwarth/silk/glitz blend.
Happy Spring crafting!
