My crafting has taken a back burner for a couple of weeks whilst other things have been going on
We visited The Deep
Humber Bridge Park with friends
Where I snapped some amazing Dragonflies
I made a Jubilee cake
and managed to miss all the celebrations :( These pictures were taken in Ikea..haha)
My WIPS this week are a Little Sister dress for a friends little girl. There isn't enough of this yarn to make the whole thing unfortunately, and since the yarn is only available in the US my choices are to try to find something that matches (probably unlikely), find something that contrasts nicely, maybe a different shade of green or brown, or try find a supplier in the US that is willing to post more here. Either way it should look fab.
and the other day I cast on Hitchhiker (I have an allergy to working on one project at a time) unfortunately this is what I'm having to do at the moment since one of my needles has a split down it and it's catching on the yarn (which is from A Stash Addict)
New needles are on the way, I think I'm going to stick with the metal variety from now on.
If you'd like to view some more WIPS please head over to Tami's Amis
As well as the projects above, I will soon be taking part in Kitschy Coo's sew-along. Amanda (owner of Kitschy Coo) is offering a 15% of her fabrics and the pattern is on offer at £5 for the sew-along (increasing to £7 after the sew-along). If you like to sew and would be interested in joining go along to her website for full details of how to join in.
I personally can't wait! I've been dying to have a go at sewing knit fabrics.
