This should have been posted up on Sunday but real life has got in the way again and as a result I have been delayed in popping up this update.
For over a year I was knitting squares in white, lilac and purples and I have started knitting the border strip as well in white. I am not what you call a natural knitter and I get bored ever so easily with knitting; I am trying to get to grips with that but I do try to be neat. Since completing the squares however it has all sat in a bag waiting for it to be stitched up. I hate sewing up knitting as well. However I have made a start; once it is all stitched up I can finish off knitting the border. I decided to tackle this one first as I can work at it piecemeal a bit at a time until all the stitching is done. I am aiming to have it sorted by the weekend.
Still a little way to go but nearly another project to bite the dust.
It is my birthday on Saturday another year older; it is also Bank Holiday weekend so I am potentially looking at some time to play. I have slowly been accumulating fabric to have a go at some patchwork Anything that is cotton whether it be old shirts all has potential. I have a couple of patchwork projects on the go UFOs so I might drag those out too.
I also have a new book by Debbie Shore called Half Yard Heaven it is £3.99 with the Book People at the moment which has a few little projects in that I am quite interested in.
I also recycle material where I can and re-purpose it. Unfortunately I managed to wreck an expensive pair of sheets with a sharp toenail which rent the sheets in half and made them un-usable. I have plans to make a valance trim for the bottom of my bed to tidy it up all in the spirit of waste not want not.
Catch you soon
