In all of the excitement about London, I haven’t had chance to share the progress on my craft projects with you. I have been busy keeping up to date with Hannah’s CAL and this is what I have done so far:
Week 4 included the bobble stitches which I love but they did prove a little bit tricky! I have never done bobbles in two colours so that took some getting used to and the most difficult thing was hiding the yellow yarn in the turquoise as I was working my way along the row! I managed to do all of these rows in one day which was nice, but week 5 took me forever! As I was working the Saturday and Sunday before we went to London on the Monday, I didn’t have a lot of time to tackle the rows and, on top of all of that, I was feeling ill so I didn’t get much done! When I got back from London I persevered with the rows but I felt that the zig-zag ones took forever! I do love the finished effect though so hopefully when we do them again I won’t mind as much. Now I’m really excited to see what Hannah has got in store for us with tomorrow’s set of instructions!
I have also been working on my Woodland Sampler in an attempt to catch up since I am still behind! Again, the trip to London slowed me down a little, but I did manage to finish April and I have made a good start on May. Luckily, May and June are only small but I haven’t stitched the box yet for July! Plus, I have some birthday presents to stitch ready for August so that might put me back a bit again. I am hoping to get May and June done this week then I will stitch my presents and crack on with July! Busy, busy busy!
Also, I have been that busy recently that I never showed you one of the Pinterest projects that I completed! My lovely friend Charlotte celebrated her birthday a while ago and I wanted to make her a birthday present! I fell in love with the idea of making this little button bowl…you can see the original pin here!
I was really happy and surprised at how well it turned out and Charlotte loved it!
So I’m still working hard at my crafts and hopefully I will have a maxi skirt to show you soon! It is still in need of hemming!
