Although things have been a bit quiet on the blog, life has been pretty busy! With so much going on I thought I’d catch you up in one go. SO – there’s been lots of…
Making a hexagon blanket from this pattern. No recipient in mind, just a good acrylic stash-busting project! I plan on adding a border of cream hexagons to match the individual borders.
I made a hat to match this shrug pattern a couple of years ago, but it got snatched away by my sis almost as soon as it came off the needles! I finally got around to making myself another one, with a matching scarf.
And this – since it’s getting pretty cold here, our new puppy has been feeling it! More photos to come soon, but project details here.
I got this pile of books from my almost-sister-in-law as a late birthday present! I’ve started on “Along Came A Spider” – great so far, as to be expected from one of my favourite authors.
This t-shirt blanket has been on the books for ages! This was supposed to be a Christmas present for sis, then a birthday present, then Christmas present again the following year, and it’s finally been completed – and it was well received!
Pre-sewn: I used a favourite book from childhood as a template for cutting out all her childhood t-shirts…
After sewing: I used a flannel blanket for extra padding in the middle, with a cute chunky hem, just the right size for a double bed!
13 weeks to go, and still SO MUCH to do! Much of my wedding is DIY, so there’s been lots of cutting…
… and sheet music cut-outs!
When things settle down a bit, I’d really like to take on another challenge and get into some style posts, but in the meantime, you can check out these favourites that I read all the time – they are great inspiration!

PS: since it’s the beginning of the month I’ve updated my Popular Posts on the side bar – who knew my “Snapshots of my day” post would be my second most popular post in the last month! Should I do another one?
