What If Knitting Ended and you missed their Last Tour?
The Christmas Branch is on the compost heap. That's better - it feels like we are getting back to normal now!
I have almost finished FL's socks. They are pretty ugly but they will keep his feet warm. I really really need to finish these today or I never will.
Yesterday I sewed a pair of curtains for the bedroom, which feels pretty good: 4 metres of fabric out of the stash and on daily display... once I buy curtain poles to hang them on!
And I have been knitting up my design-idea. Oh yeah! It is going well :D
And most unbelievable of all: I did a 45-minute exercise dvd session without falling over. Do it again! Again! Again!
I picked up a recipe magazine at the airport while waiting for The Girl and am feeling quite inspired on the food front too.
Dare I say - I am still sticking to my Resolutions 5 days in to the New Year?! I hope you are impressed. I know I am!
I spent two hours cutting just the front of my Betsey Johnson pintuck tunic.
I vacuumed the floor and ironed the fabric before I started, but still it is a hairy crumpled mess. The plaid has no stability and was skidding around as I tried to pin the tissue, making check- matching almost impossible.
I was about to cut the back when I realised I only had enough fabric left for one sleeve. How many arms do you have, Roo? Count them?
It is retrievable if I cut the back out of the section I had left for the sleeve and the sleeves (plural) out of the piece meant for the back.
But not today.
Step away from the sewing with those scissors, girl!
Let's just finish that sock...
