WHO PUT THE COLOURS IN THE RAINBOW?
It's all about the colour today!
I bought a couple of half metres' worth of Christmas polycottons - honestly, it cost less than some magazines you can buy! I was running out of suitable fabrics for the reversible doggy bandanas which have been such a hit!
This is Bruce! He's the cute little dog of Caroline, my friend in band and doesn't he rock the bandana?! I couldn't ask for a better model huh?! Anyway, I've been making a few more for various charity groups and presents as they've been very successful. That's pleasing :-D
Some ready for packaging - I used up some of the final scraps of the Scandi fabrics to make a patchwork one too.
I thought these were lovely but will put them away until the Spring....
The Greyhound Trust ladies requested some more hats and doggy snoods. My hubby has been a complete star and made the pom poms for me (I think he likes using the Clover pom pom maker, nice bit of technology you see!) I do love this chunky wool (James C Brett) it knits up really quickly and is the perfect thing to make whilst watching the telly :-)
But it hasn't all been about the crafting this week - G and I have bought a house!! Not in Wiltshire but back in our home town in Wales...it's been a bit of a shock to our family and friends but is a good decision. I can't wait to be back by the sea - though I think it's just as well that we'll have a guest room because everyone has said they're coming to visit. Julia and I have been brave and will be back and forth because she's too good a mate to not see frequently. Telling my friends in band was the hardest thing - it's been a big part of my life and I shall miss them all terribly. What other hobby could see you doing this for example:
We did a whole day of playing marches and other music in Tesco at Tidworth. As it's a garrison town, there's lots of military personnel in and out. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the music - it's a bit different eh? We shall be back there twice (again at Tesco's request) to play Christmas carols and music in December.
So, there you have it - my week in a nutshell: sewing, knitting, parping and house buying. You can't say I don't live a busy life!!
