Nat from Threads and Bobbins organized this link up, whereby you showcase the things that aren’t quite meaty enough to dedicate an entire blog post to.
I’ve got a few things to show you this week and, whilst they only number seven, there are a few more photos than that.
1. A finished off blanket from last month.
I love the flower detail in the middle.
Such lovely, dusky colours in the softest yarn – Drops Andes.
2. I found a 1930s Grandmother clock, perfect for our house which was built in 1937! I’ve been searching for a suitable one for ages and was chuffed to bits when I spotted this in a local antique shop.
3. I picked up my knitting needles to start on the first jumper I’ve knitted since 1988!
This one’s for me and I fancied using a tweedy yarn (Stylecraft’s Aran with 20% wool) to make it a proper country jumper for when I walk the dogs. This is my first attempt at knitting cables though and I think I’ve got it right first time!
4. I don’t know if those eagle-eyed amongst you have spotted the new badge in my sidebar? I’m the latest blog to be sponsored by Minerva Crafts to use and review their products.
The materials for my first three months projects have just arrived! Don’t you just love getting parcels like this in the post?
My first make will be using this good quality sweatshirt fabric with a very modern “Chic” print.
I’ve got a great project in mind for this practical quilted leatherette.
I’m really excited about this one though – a gorgeous Chinese print brocade!
All these projects will be revealed and blogged about over the next eight weeks or so.
5. A couple of new book purchases (as if I haven’t got enough!). I blame this entirely on Teresa from Navy Blue Threads🙂
6. After we finished some amazing tea that was given to us by somebody who insisted they weren’t going to drink it, we hunted down some more.
At a hefty £25.00 for a tiny tin, I think we’d better ration ourselves with this next lot!
7. Finally, I whipped up a batch of eighty scones for a little boy’s Christening. Like you do.
