But, it's not in vain. Look!
My Kimono peg basket. I'm so proud of myself! I didn't think I could do it, but yes I could! Isn't it fabulous? I know the sewing or shaping isn't the best, but for a first project I think it rocks.
And the best thing? I have more than enough fabric left for another one, if not maybe two with some creative cutting. So, Tara, you never know what the postal elf might deliver! ;)
I can't wait for washday now so I can put this baby to use!
You may remember I said I had got a bedsheet to practice on before trying it with my lovely fabric. Well, I decided waste not, want not, so I thought it might make a cute doctor or dentist or nurse outfit for one of Alice's teddies. I snipped open the sleeves and bottom, put it on one of her teddies and she promptly decided it was a priests outfit. So, I give you Father Ted! I laughed myself silly at that one. For anyone who doesn't know it, Father Ted is possibly one of the funniest comedy shows to come from Ireland in years, hilarious antics of a rural parish. Just a pure scream. Anyway, here he is!
Just too cute.
In knitting news, as this is meant to be a knitting blog, the Good Stripe Dress progresses. Man this is a slow knit! I'm on the last full round before the end, so there are 500 stitches in a round now. Phew! Still, it's looking faboo. Can't wait to finish it so I can try it on her!
I'll want some instant gratification when this finishes, so I'm thinking some charity preemie knitting and yay! some baby knitting for my best friend who's knocked up with number three! Say the girl chant with me for her please. Two boys and counting. Itsagirl, itsagirl, itsagirl. I think I shall knit only pink things by way of sending karma vibes.
I'm still waiting on my Cookie A book. *sigh* when will it ever get here??
So it was back to work and school today after two lovely weeks off. Boo. The weather was just glorious here last weekend and today (rub it in God, why don't you!), so I didn't see my cherub from morning until chowtime and liquid refreshment. It was great! Hence the sewing progress achieved. I'm so proud of my little sewing machine, still going strong at a century old. If only I could say the same for me!
Start saying good weather prayers for me now will you? The communion is Saturday week and if it rains, I'm screwed!
