Gee whizz you'd wonder if I had a blog at all with the almost non-existant updating.
But what with the constant baskets of laundry (one of which I just stopped folding to write this ... funny it does not seem to be folding itself as I type), a non-sleeping-during-the-day-anymore toddler and taped episodes of Masterchef to catch up on the poor old blog is getting put on the back burner.
That was of course until I had finished my latest knitted thingy and am pretty happy (and warmed) with the results
Yep, feeling pretty grateful round about now that I've downsized the photos. And admittedly this isn't the best shot of the feature of this beauty which is the stomach-cramp inducing dropped stitches creating the ladder effect. For a better shot (minus the nose) go see Tania who first made me gasp with the "I must do this and I must do it now's" upon seeing her version. Pattern and yarn details can be found here.
So while you're here I might just flash up a few other bits of homemade goodness that have come in to and out of our house of late. Ok? Cool.
Another fail safe, always met with a smile On-the-go Art Satchel for a friend turning six.
Ok make that two On-the-go Art satchel's. A belated shot of one I made for Sienna's fifth birthday.
Also for Sienna's birthday, this gorgeous Neighborly vest knitted by my bestie, Antonia.
A red corduroy dress with little flower detail I made for my niece's second birthday.
And speaking of flowers this amazingly delicate, gorgeousness made by Cathie arrived in the post on Tuesday thanks to a very uncharacteristic for me win on her recent giveaway. I can't begin to tell you how much I love this work of art.
Ok and finally (are you still there?), this cushion I recently finished for Max, son of bestie (of the previously mentioned Neighbourly fame) who recently turned two. It features a bit of embroidery I was working on a few creative spaces' ago, the owl and the pussycat, a free pattern from Follow the White Bunny. As my first foray into embroidery I was pretty happy with the result. Admittedly it's mainly pretty simple backstitch but you know, baby steps.
Right then, back to some laundry folding.
Now if you have any reading ability left I strongly suggest you head on over to Kirsty's place and make your way through the ever growing list.
