With the arrival of some cooler weather, my crafting over the past week or so has involved playing with some of the gorgeous organic yarns that are around at the moment.
This one is a wool and soybean blend – really soft and warm……
This one is a bamboo and cotton blend….
I have traded my old knitting needles for some bamboo needles and have really enjoyed the difference.
Sarah and I are addicted to Master Chef on Channel 10 at the moment and have been snuggling under this crochet blanket while we watch. I worked out that I made this blanket 27 years ago when I was 17 years old. It was the year I was doing my Year 12 exams and my reward for every hour of studying, was to crochet a few rounds. It is still going strong but after seeing all the lovely afghans around at the moment, I feel quite inspired to make an new one.
I have started this Cherry Tree embroidery from Marie Claire Idees and am enjoying some stitching in front of the TV.
We have a long weekend coming up this weekend, in celebration of Foundation Day, when the Swan River colony was founded in 1829. I hope to get back into some sewing over the weekend. I see another quilt in my future!
