This week has been full of sewing and crochet. I set up the camp table in the corner of the kitchen to allow me to leave my sewing machine out. This way I can carry on where I left off around all the catering, eating, homework etc that happens ordinarily on the kitchen table. A few of you were curious to know what I would do with the crochet flowers. I am making a garland for my niece in London. That's started, but still a work in progress.
Miss O has a dress up day tomorrow. They have a parade dressed as a helper in the community. She wants to be a nurse. I know we could have put something together a la 'Scrubs' in blue or green, but my nostalgic self set about making an old fashioned nurses pinafore. Just have to try and figure out how to make a little hat today.
My family in England has welcomed a brand spanking new great step-nephew. I am putting a little bundle together to send over. Yesterday I appliqued these baby singlets with some of my favourite Japanese fabrics. My lovely friend Chelle, from Curly Music Box Co is also making up a special order music box too. I started crocheting a dolls blanket for Miss O at the weekend. It is coming together surprisingly quickly. I will save a photo for next week. I thought about making one for new nephew, but the postage cost would be over the top. I might make a little garland to finish off the bundle.
Hoping you have all enjoyed your creative weeks and here's to the next one.
Off to Kootoyoo to see who's been making what.
PS. My neighbour has just gone into labour - very exciting. But I might not be around for a few days as I think I may be looking after their 2 year old. Her mother-in-law is now not coming down from Queensland. Fun Fun.
