RIP IT UP AND START AGAIN....
...this is the reason for the song title today:
The walls have been filled and painted but G had to do some serious floor fixing before we could make a start on the woodwork. The Jan-Cave is progressing little by little :-)
I don't seem to have had much hwyl (Welsh word for gumption - pronounced hoil) for the crafting recently. I can't seem to settle to anything sewing wise. And then I found the remains of a charm pack (plus other similar squares I'd cut from fat quarters) lurking in a bag under my worktable.
So I'm just doing some mindless patchwork - the colours are all sorted, it's just a question of 1/4 inch seams. Easy on the brain :-)
There's some old favourites in there! The green with autumn leaves on is from a fat quarter I've had since the dawn of time, the paler green circles and flowers were from a fat q pack from Fabricland and the two bright squares at the back were from a selection of Happy Mail fabric that Kay 505Whimsy Girl sent me. Lots of lovely memories there!
I'm going to send this. plus the items pictured below to an outreach charity based in North Wales. I've sent stuff to them previously but received an email from the organiser asking if I was still interested in donating. They've asked the UK Handknitting website if they can be mentioned on their charity link but apparently are considered too small a group to be featured!! This made me a bit cross. So if any of you would like to make something knitted, crocheted or quilty, then email me for info.
Last week's blanket is finished and I'm making another to finish off this blasted splitty yarn. I'm not doing complicated hooking, just need it to be over and done with ASAP! Ron is showing admirable restraint, don't you think, in resisting the urge to curl up on all that softness?!
Take care, lovely gals - have a good crafty week :-D xxxxxxxxxxxx
