Another day draws to a close, I’m sitting on my bed, watching The Brothers Grimm on Foxtel and am on Row 19 of:
Yes, the second version of a Patricia Kristoffersen Doily.
I really am in love with this Petra Cotton. It’s another lot DMC but in #5 and it’s just as lovely as the beige for Barbie!!
I have ideas of what to do with it next….. *MUST CONCENTRATE ON WIPS FIRST*
It’s absolutely POURING outside… which is good in some ways (the workers dont get prickly heat.. or dehydrated.. or not wear their PPE because its too hot) but I wish to all the small Gods I could send it home, where the world looks like this:
And there is a reason why I like this photo…..
I am back from Christmas at TB C… I have some other photos to show you:
And this: the parentals on Christmas Day!
And Bob had problems handling the pace:
But I did get to go to An Honest to Goodness Yarn Store…
For those interested : the Store is Stitch ‘n’ Time in Mawson, ACT and is where I bought yarn… and the ribbons to be threaded through this little top!
This top is done without seams. You start at the neckline and work outwards, there are pink, peach and mandarin ribbons to go through the eyelets. The ruched section is just popcorn stitch. And the top itself is made from a pink version of our friend: the 100% Merino Soft in Peach, and a Merino/Silk blend from The Perfect Skein! It’s very easy on the yarn – two 50gm balls of the pink 4 ply, and 2 skeins of the bright colours.. there’s a matching hat on its way:)
So that it’s today – more photos, less words, but still, all my love to you (lurkers and commenters alike!)
