Oh, I’ve been so busy with the Littlies back at school and trying to get things organised that I only realised yesterday it’s been over a week since my last post. Naughty me!
I’m still working away on the sky blanket: after joining the two halves that first border row has taken f-o-r-e-v-e-r! Straightening out the ripple did take a bit of extra time but I’m done on that now, so it’s just the final rows. And I’m going to need more yarn as I’ve run out of grey. I was clearly way too optimistic about having nice blue skies!!!
The organising of my craft space is taking a while, it is a bit of a disaster area at the moment and I’m at a loss of where to start. So I’m taking small steps each day and hopefully will get it sorted by stealth! I’m itching to get back to my machine but the chaos that currently exists in my sewing space is making it very difficult to be productive. What is it they say – a tidy space equals a tidy mind? If that is the case, then I think my crafty little mind is a bit like a tornado at the moment!!!!!
I have however been doing a lot of planning for when my crafty space is all sorted, mainly getting organised for the Skill Builder BOM. I wanted to use as many fabrics as I could from my stash (which, despite Mr f&f’s protests, I believe is actually quite modest!) and on searching through came across this beautiful bundle of FQs (Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda, if you’re wondering!) that I bought at the Knitting & Stitching show a couple of years ago.
