hope it's a sunny Sunday

Recommended Posts

Looks more hopeful of a better day today,,, never went out yesterday, each time we thought it was stopping, boom down it came, annoying thing is I didn't even get far with my crafting, one of those days I guess.

 

I'm now sat in craft room, sky pale grey instead of the dark of yesterday and I'm watching the craft programmes, its card making now using die cuts, seems to be the "thing" I don't make enough to justify one of those, but next its the quilting programme which hopefully will be interesting, not that I'll make another quilt for a while although I enjoy patchwork, I have been thinking of making a patchwork travel bag using furnishing fabric, I'm on the look out for samples, near here we have a place called Scrap, it's just what the name say, companies donate unwanted scrap and it's sold to 'members' to raise funds for their real purpose which is they run childrens workshops in crafting, you see children coming out happy with all kinds of weird and wonderful creations...drifted a bit there on what I was going to say, they often have furnishing fabric sample book for a few pounds, I keep looking but as yet not seen what I want, a lovely one the other week but white background, not really suitable for a travel bag, I have this idea of sections inside to hold toiletries, hairdryer, oh yes crafts (biggest section)...

 

Think I may pick up my stash busting crochet scarf and do a few rows, did manage a few rows of the rainbow knit yesterday, thinking I may pop downstairs and bring that up here, wonder if I'd get on with it better in here, ''''ping''' good idea....worth a try......watch this space ladies, I may post a picture of it soon.

 

happy crafting......hope the day stays dry for all you are doing.

Brought the rainbow knit up, about to pick up the needles....I'm in 2 minds, stash ut away for a later date or get stuck in and finish it, the latter sounds best or I'll forget what I'm doing as working without a pattern.

Eliza love your makes & I think it will be a huge craft bag to carry all your supplies ;)

Hello Goose and Tracey too - hope you get plenty of crafting done today!

 

I'm playing mum's taxi today as Ellie has a birthday party to attend.  Weather is still iffy here so hope it brightens as there's supposed to be a bouncy castle.

 

Kittens are haring around right now.  They're like children, into everything :lol:  I've finished off a small blanket this morning I'd grown bored of making and its now going to be a kitty blanket.  Still crocheting the scraps one too which is looking lovely.

 

Right best go and investigate - its gone quiet :huh: :ph34r: :lol:
