I also made 2 men’s sweatshirts but completely forgot to photograph them

I am really enjoying sewing stretch knits and am slowly becoming more confident using my magnificent and very clever overlocker

Last Saturday, 14 of us descended on The Empress of Blandings for lunch, it was a last minute idea so I had to collect menus from everyone at very short notice, it all went smoothly though and we were very well looked after

We had such a lovely happy day….

I think Barry was checking I was using my camera properly when I took this photo…he notices if I have the flash facing the wrong direction, which apparently, I did! lol

Here’s Sullivan modelling the cute Berkshire Blazer I made him for his birthday…there was a request or two for one of these from the men

You can see more photos of the day and the gifts being opened here

Love my family!

I’ve got Maisie with me at the moment so I’ve not done any sewing this side of Christmas, I have plenty of ideas though, it feel good to be slowing down a bit, but will I ever get back up to speed?!?

Knitting and watching films is taking president right now…oh and a full roast dinner has been requested for today so I better get on and peel some veg!

ETA: The dinner is now all eaten and we’re all very sleepy!

ETA: I’ve given up on Livewriter for now, it won’t let me upload images to wordpress…I’ve been struggling for a few hours now! I have created this post directly in WordPress so apologies if it looks a bit frazzled round the edges!!

About picperfic

I dye luxurious fibre blends for spinners and felters, and sew beautiful bags, project bags and needle/hook organisers to a very high standard, using designer fabrics and then I photograph them!
