Can a needlewoman ever have enough reels of thread?
Here is the little hoard that I found at the car boot sale - 3 little plastic tubs with about 40 reels - some partly used, but still a bargain for £2!
They will be fine for my crafty projects although I tend to use new stuff for my dress making projects.
So that's my desk for today. On Monday it was filled with Maxine's busy book.
She is putting bias binding around each page and it is looking really great. No doubt she will blog it on her Tilly Tea Dance blog later.
This is my latest little knittie.
I used Sirdar Faroe chunky wool to knit a little cardi for autumn days - size 1-2 yrs.
I love the colour combo.
I am also knitting a similar one in lovely blue/green shades of the same random wool.
However, I do get a bit hung up on making both sleeves and both fronts "match" .
Annie and Jan know what I mean. I have been known to almost unravel a whole ball just to get the colour match! Annie and I have laughed ourselves silly trying to get it right. I don't like a totally random look. But I came to the conclusion with the blue shades that there was no real match as each ball was slightly different so I gave up - well, almost!!!
If you want to see what crafters' desks around the globe are looking like today, just follow the link to WOYWW over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
Have a great week
PS - for those of you who left lovely comments about my dancing lessons last week - I am still practising and not quite up to producing the video that several requested!!!! However, the pole is in place and is perfect for the job!
