I've made a Two Summer Sundress, wings, a wand and a hat - she will be a pretty pretty fairy.
Should get it finished tonight and hopefully she will be in good form for a photoshoot tomorrow.
So on Friday, on my way down to Wexford, I called in to the shop that is to sponsor the fabrics for the quilt - Threads of Green in Kilkenny. Its a shop in an IDA park on the outskirts of Kilkenny and was a virtual Aladin's Cave for me. So hard not to spend all my money!
I can't give away the design but below are the fabrics I got.
On the knitting front, I am working away on designs for Christmas. Hopefully I will have a leaflet for sale by the end of October with a few designs on it.
No christmas tree up yet so the mug tree has been called into action!
The Whitford had the best as Breda was exhibiting. She does gorgeous textile pieces of irish landscapes and flowers and hedgerows. Beautiful and completely different to anything else you see. She had sold three before the exhibition had been officially opened - one of them to Mam!
All my little hats! Had to take a photo of them today as they are to be sent off in the post.
I can't remember how many I counted. Either 44 or 54. Not too shabby. I made loads initially but it tailed off quite a bit to the end.
And here is a picture of Smem in her blue dress. I think she likes it!
This morning got to finish the dress I started making for her over a week ago. I doctored a plain A-line top pattern that I bought on sale. It is now empire line, with elastic under the arms to facilitate easy put-on.
It's not too bad. Messed up the inside a bit as I sewed it together in the wrong order. But I know for future. And its only a little bit messy in one part.
After watching me knit tiny hats for the past two weeks, C asked for a hat for himself. So I made one.
Was kinda guessing on the size though so its a little tight around the head and he said he would like it a bit taller. So now I have to make another. I loved doing the coloured stripes. Thoughts of cool cardies and jumpers for Smem were coming to mind as I was knitting it.
Wish I could knit faster!
But all is well now. Might actually get some crafting done.
Up to 43 little hats now. Think I need to try something new!
Took some time out from hat knitting tonight to make a design of my own. Thinking of making a few Christmas decorations to put together into a leaflet for sale in my Etsy shop. Just have to think of a few more to make.
Great way to use up my flourescent orange. I bought that 25g ball with my pocket money when I was very young but have never had a good project to use it for. Now is its time to shine!
