Bex has been doing crochet for about 2 years now, and in that time she's made quite a few little items, mostly toys, beanies, cocoons etc.
Yesterday she finished her first clothing item:
6 WEEKS! It's getting so exciting, there is NOTHING like a newborn to lift your spirits and make you smile more.
Even better, I'm just the Grandma, I don't have to do any of the sleepless nights/sore back/cracked nipples stuff!
Sorry if that was too much info!
Today? Well... Bex and Dante go to Playcentre, and I'm going to Patchwork class.
I'm just going to do a couple of mug rugs today. I've not started the baby cot bumper yet. Slack I know, but something always seems to crop up and stop me making a start on it.
But, now that the house is all ship shape again, I am sure I can settle down and get right back into my sewing again.
So, until later....
Today I'm fasting. Gunna give the 5:2 diet a go. 5 days you eat normally, 2 days you semi fast.
When I got home from patchwork class, I was just in time to kiss Dante goodbye as they left for Hamilton.
They are off for a couple of days, visiting friends. Steve is joining them after work today.
So, it's just Stew, B & G and me for the weekend.
Class was lovely today. One of the ladies was making a Japanese inspired wall hanging, and she had to make 11 little kimono's ... so several of us girls learnt how to make them too.
ABOVE: See... so small ... but cute. I made two while I was there. I have no idea if I will even want to do a Japanese inspired ANYTHING... but at least I know how to make them. *smiles*
Next Friday is our last day in class, the shop is being closed down after Easter.
The tutor is trying to find a venue so we can still keep our group together. I hope she can, I was starting to really feel like 'one of the girls'... and would miss them if it doesn't start up again.
I got a few pieces of fabric from the sales table today, and a couple of ends of roll too. There's going to be more bargains after Easter... can't wait!
ABOVE: Christmas fabrics... no time like the present to start on Christmas projects!
ABOVE: all the shell/fish fabrics were end of the roll pieces... and I love them, particularly the one on the right.
The kids are home early today... kill me now. I am so over kids at the moment, particularly shitty teenagers. Even Griffin is getting hormonal and anal... I hope his balls drop fast and he gets over himself.
End of Day: a lovely evening, spent in front of the telly and doing a jig saw on me computer.
