I’m going to look through my photos and see if I can recall what I’ve been up to…I have been incredibly busy but can’t remember off hand what it is I’ve been busy with!
A plaited handle bag for Ali
A Slouchy bag for Maisie
A Manu for me, I love and adore this cardigan and would wear it every day if I could…i do mostly lol

Two Multi Tasking Totes, one for my mum and one for a lovely customer..
Finished the back of my silk bolero…this has been put back in it’s project bag for now…
Sewed myself a dress to wear to London
Made some socks for my Aunty Sally
Dyed up the fibre club blend….lots of it!! (If you would like the details of my fibre club you can click the pink link)
Snow Outside the Globe Theatre in London, we went to see a play called voices off with our neighbours from Haddenham, Rob & Lyndsey, it was an hilarious farce, the play not the whole day although it was a lot of fun. Sadly my knee joint decided to play up and going up and down lots of stairs for the tube trains was very painful, then my hip on the other leg started to join in. whinge whinge whinge…it’s all ok again now though
Barry tried on an armoured glove in the V&A museum…love that place and that man ❤
I spun up the club fibre so that i could add a sample with each package
Did a shop update, I’m trying out dyeing some yarn, I’m not so confident with it as I am with tops though. I might try some more …
I bought a pretty bobbin holder from Jaycott’s. Maisie arranged my bobbins, love how it looks. I need another bobbin holder though lol
Sewed a couple of my Dumpling bags for a customer
Knitted this tiny little jacket from the club handspun
Made these i-cord finger gloves because I found the pattern in one of my Meg Swanson Books and just had to make them!
Knitted Maisie a pair of cashmerino socks to wear under her ugg boots
Knitted these cute little bootees from some more of the club handspun (I have enough left to knit a tiny hat too)
Did another shop update, this time with some more of the club blend of SW Merino and Seacell and some beautiful Polwarth fibre
In between all that activity, my sewing machine needed to go back to the shop for a repair and my Maisie has been here for the last week. I love having her in the house, she is such good company even if she does spend most of her time in her room studying I think….
We’re about to take her back to her Dad’s now….
It’s no wonder I’m
knackered worn out!
I’m going to be doing lots of sewing next week so if you’ve requested a bag or a needle case from me, this could be the week you hear from me!
