eye candy friday

The fabric ready and waiting for quilt 2. I know it is a bit previous showing off what I plan to make the next one with when I haven't even documented the first, but I will get around to it. It was just that seeing all of the fabrics together for the first time got me really excited. What really got me going is that everything on the right hand side is either stuff I had hanging around anyway, or was gifted to me, which means that it will turn into a double sided quilt, one side shop bought, and the other thrifted.

It is just a pity that I have 2 jumpers, at least 1 pair of socks, god knows how many felted heart Christmas tree ornaments (don't ask), a hot wheat-a-bottle, a couple of flannels and another kimono to knit for Christmas before I can even think of getting down to this, or any knitting for me.


Happy Friday.

Yesterday I finished this little cotton kimono (Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono, MDK, as written in Peaches & Creme Col. Celery). It is a gift for my colleague Sarah who is leaving to have her first baby on Tuesday (leaving that is, baby makes its own mind up when it comes). Obviously it is for the baby, Sarah is thin, but not that petite.

I did some figuring out today, and this is the 40-something F knitted O of the year. That is over FOUR TY knitted things I have made this year. I couldn't knit this time 12 months ago, and I am sat here typing in sunshine yellow Monkeys (ies?) that I made. And that says nothing of the clothes I have sewn, or the fact that I may also be turning into a quilter. It is hardly any wonder that I am facing major angst on how I can work for a living and still fit in all the things that are important in life. This is an evolving story though.

In separate news... Jenn has suggested that I have a monthly haiku competition. Bloody good idea. This month's theme is pie. There are no prizes, just the kudos of a haiku well written. Plaudits will be published on the first of the next month, along with the new theme. Should I remember.

One last shot before this goes to have formula and mushed banana ground into it.

Welcome. This is a place for me to record stuff. Mostly things I make. Partially things that happen. And sometimes things I am thinking. Please feel free to drop by from time to time.

By way of an introduction, I am female, in my 30s, trying to figure it all out. A wage slave by day, a knitter/cook/crafter/whatever by choice. A sister, daughter & friend.
