~*~ Knitting, Hopping, Reading and MOOing ~*~
I am finding it very difficult to find a sewing project to settle down to. I will probably be off work for a couple of weeks with this foot and see it is a good opportunity to embark on a major quilt, however what to do?
I cannot sit and do nothing, I must have something in my hands to work on. I have a little first size cardi in wool/silk to finish.
As well as making quilts for new babies, I also make up little suitcases.
These contain; a handknit in luxury yarn and matching booties
a book, normally an Ahlberg
a couple of hand embroidered vests/bodysuits
a wooden rattle or such like and something gorgeous for the new mum.
I always have a couple of these cases at the ready and I have had a run on little girls lately, hence the lovely soft pink.
I have finished Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris and enjoyed it very much. Alex, my eldest son, has picked me up another of hers 5 Quarters of the Orange, at our local Oxfam bookshop for £2. However I have already started the new Fannie Flagg book, Can't wait to get to Heaven.
My Moo cards arrived on Friday, within a week of ordering. On the whole I am pleased with them, some of the images are a bit dark though.
