Autumn Sock Club
Thank you too for the pear love! I sent off my swap pal's one today so I do hope they like it when they receive it. My daughter suggested that I make some more for my blogiversary next month to give away and I might just take her up on that idea. What do you think, sound good. Let me know okay so then I can get organised. It seems since I sewed up those pears that my sewing machine has been made to feel loved again as I hadnt touched it since xmas. Today I whipped up a water bottle holder which was so easy to make and my water bottle is a perfect fit. I also made some juggle balls for Isabelle which were quick and easy too and then a little purse for Isabelle that she had been wanting me to make. Tomorrow will be spent making an art smock for Isabelle tracing her old one and making it to fit a size 12. Unfortunately whilst trying to buy one earlier in the year they sadly only went up to size 10 and were not vey nice colors. Her last one was handmade from a mum from kindergarten who sold them in beautiful fabrics so now I am going to use that one to make the new one. We went to Spotlight today to pick out some fabric which is nice and bright and should be perfect for the art smock. I also spied Spotlight's new cashmere blend yarns which beautiful and the colors are nice. Some are rustic colors which I love but at $7 a ball I didnt grab any this time. Maybe to knit up a hat or two or a scarf in future! It seems they are putting all their new yarns in at the moment and clearing the old ones out. Should be interesting to see what else they put in their store. I shall put pictures up tomorrow or Wednesday when I complete the art smock (successfully hopefully) and I will show the other items too. Okay off to bed for now, catch you later on.
