Catch up

It has been rather a long time between posts but I have had a fair bit going on. First off here is the finished patchwork bag which is now destined to be a birthday present for mumsy in March.

I do rather love the handles - I'd quite like to have some as bracelets. It's all nicely finished and should do her to carry her specs about.

The stripey cardi for Yoshimi is finished. It's actually properly finished now but this was it before I did the edging and buttonholes.

My next project for the littl'un is going to be a series of dolls. They're not for her now but for when she's a year or so so I figure I'll build up a collection of them til I've got enough for a game or something. This is going to be the first:

Pooch and I continue with our secret pal exchange and his latest gift to me is from curious yarns.

Selling now on ebay

These are the magnets I've just put on at £1.50 each. Then there are loads of the cutest stitchmarkers a la...And then there are the bestest notecards in packs of 5 - one of each design. I'm really pleased with these.

I *really* like these. I got the metal circles and some squares from the handweavers studio. Have sewed some hexagons over them. Have the next size down and am sorely tempted to make some bracelets along the same lines. BUT. Really do not need another WIP.

But first, a quick update on the sockaroonies.

All going very satisfactorily. Enjoying alternating between these and the sewing. Have to admit that the reason the cushion became a bag was because I am eager to get to my floral fabric I got on ebay and which is the bees knees. But no, must refrain from starting something else…
