Buttons galore! I've just finished a couple of baby cardigans which needed a button or two, so the tin has been upended ready for a rummage. I'm a bit behind with the knitting due to the painting and gardening and stuff but I've made a few things for charity with the donated wool.
|My button tin|
All in all over the last couple of years I've made for charity: 41 jumpers; 55 hats; 7 bodywarmers; 11 boobs; 3 chicken coats; 1 dog coat; 10 scarves; 18 blankets; 13 bags; over 100 dresses; 90 smoothie hats and 84 other woolly things! I've lost a few photos which had some other items on but still all that has kept me busy!
I have also cut out a dress and skirt which need to be sewn up. Good old Fabricland, I just couldn't resist.
Also on the go is a cross stitch, but I only get round to that when there isn't any wool in the house! So I haven't done any for a - g - e - s. Here are a few I made earlier though. I love the way you start with a completely clear piece of material and all those beautiful colourful embroidery skeins and after hours and hours, voilà.
I don't know how anyone can be bored at home. There's so much to do!
