Tis 5.40 and Im up and posting before I crawl back into bed for another hour or so. Caught a dreaded lurgy and Im blaming global warming ok.
School holidays havent been that bad yet, Brins and I caught the bus to Rocky today to walk around after my physio appointment and the dreaded trip to centrelink where I didnt have the "right" information it seems AGAIN, story of my life. But Not to bore.
Today shes going to a friends from school. Said friends mother is doing a teaching degree (IS SHE MAD???) and needs some kids to practice her skills on before she starts work experience at the local state school(thats a nightmare school). So she invited her sons bestest friends to help. Kewl I say. I get a day to go to my apparent job network appointment (friggen thrills I tell ya)
Got some pics of what I have been working on this week.
First up some op shop buys...
A gorgeous bowl looks lovely in my kitchen and
A silver plate plate... Needs a good polish and will look spick
And isnt she gorgeous...
I seen her in the good sammys, sitting all by herself and the staff there were really pleased to see her go, I think she creeped em out, but we think shes lovely. I will make her a hat and broom and shes ready to take on the world then.
Onto sewing this week...
am up to putting the sleeves into my kimono style top and will finish that this weekend while brins at her dads, I need to sit and concentrate for that, but meanwhile I whipped up some flower power hippy pants for Skye.
And following cindys pattern for her sock tote I made this....
Im sooo pleased with the way it turned out, Ive never put a zipper in anything before and I did it and lined it as well. Well done cindy for this pattern. I thinks I need to make me some more, The spunk reckons the house will be full of em soon. Well maybe. Im going to make a larger one to actually hold all my sock stash in, tis not a big stash like some but enuff for a few pairs and that will keep it safe from nasty bugs. And then what about some to hang actual socks in and then I need one for the car to have something to work on in. and maybe one to hold needles in and one for....... YOU get the drift... I lurve em.
My new cup. Awww aint she sweet, I really LURVE hello Kitty and when I seen her yesterday complete with chocolate egg for a measly $3.50 I knew I had to have her, So I did.
What Im working on...
Firstly I have been working
on my mohair cardi. Ive done the back and one side and am working on sleeves atm, I like to beak up the jumper and do the sleeves in between or I end up on sleeve island wondering whether I ever will finish it. Im not sure about the front though, It just doesnt look like I wanted, so I have put a small life line in ready to rip back a bit and redo. Ive tried to catch some of the way the colours just blend in but I dont think I could ever do it enuff justice. Its just gorgeous.
And has anyone used this gorgeous stuff. Its from Kmart and their own brand, Its 8ply 100% wool and its devine.Brins needs a redish hat we realised after a trip to shops yesterday where as she dressed herself. I should have taken a pic but forgot. So I will attempt to describe her attire. From the feet up.
Black boots. black tights with red cow print. black short skirt. Nemo top. Red jumper that I made her last year complete with bell sleeves. and A GREEN HAT. Bloody hell she looked hippy, bohemian and crazy in one. The child has her own sense of style and besides the GREEN hat she looked gorgeous. So she picked out this and I am making her the beret from Jo sharps Heartland book. Its a red/orange mix.
This wool is sooooooooooo soft and squishy and they have some lovely mottled colours I have decided tomoz to take another little trip to Kmart and layby me some, Tis 40% off atm, I paid about $2.90 a ball I think. And a squishy soft warm wooly jumper (for me) here I come. Well thats if I can get enuff in the colour I liked. I was thinking that jumper in the latest Yarn mag, I love the design but dont want mine plain.. ahhh we will see.
In other news this week. My Boy/Man has survived his first week as a navy recruit, mind u I did receive a phone call 2nd day in asking for a survival package, consisting of smokes.
