If you are a regular follower you may have noticed that WIP Wednesday this week was missing. I’ve been on a serious mission as I needed the satisfaction of completing a project. Last weekend I measured my daughter’s chevron blanket and it was 78cm long, I was aiming for 1m so I knew if I…… Continue reading Finished Object Friday!
Another week and nearly another part of Bluebird’s Granny is complete. I’ve got 4 rows of Granny stitches to do to finish it, the hexagons worked up really quickly so it was the borders that took ages. Because this blanket is a yarn eater I seem to be really getting through the parchment coloured one so I…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday 18th January
The first WIP Wednesday of 2017! It’s been quite a productive week, with two crochet projects on the go, one of which hasn’t seen the light of day since September. The first (and main) project is the Bluebird’s Granny CAL. Part 1 is complete now, and part 2 is coming along. When I saw it needed 11…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
If you’ve been following you’ll know that I have been making jumpers for both of my godson’s toys (Monkey and Duck) for Christmas. If you’ve missed my posts, a brief summary is that I wrote patterns from the toys’ measurements and hoped for the best! Tonight I sewed on the final buttons, all four are…… Continue reading Finally Finished!
It’s that time of year when we need to find presents for the grown ups ‘lucky’ enough to spend time with/educate/care for my little ones and I’m sure plenty of other parents are in the same boat. There are so many people who need to be thanked, and who doesn’t love a sweet treat at…… Continue reading Easiest Ever Festive Fudge
Only 10 days until Christmas Eve and I’m still working on gifts. I actually have another one still to start, but it’s a quick one so hopefully I’ll have it done in no time. The Monkey and Duck jumper production line is full flow now I’m happy with the pattern. I’ve made all of the…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
Today’s WIP Wednesday is kind of a fib, as only one thing is actually a WIP. The advent calendar was completed last week, with a touch of embroidery at the top to finish it off. I was aiming for chain stich for the text but the thread was too fluffy and kept catching so I…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
Well, a lot of ‘really hard maths’, a fair amount of measuring and a steep learning curve later I have produced the first of 4 jumpers for Monkey and Duck. The next ones should be easier now the pattern has been written, and there aren’t many tweaks I need to make really. My experience of…… Continue reading Monkey Jumper Mk1
There is only one WIP this week, the advent calendar. The end of this marathon is in sight and I seem to be picking up speed now. I also seem to be developing sore fingers as the backing fabric is so thick. This week I have managed to attach the rows of pockets, sew on…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
It’s been a while since I did a WIP Wednesday but thought I’d share what I’m working on as even though they aren’t for me they aren’t finished yet either so it shouldn’t ruin any surprises (and the chances of the recipients seeing them are very slim, the chances of them actually knowing what they…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
