This is the item I purchased at the Borris Fair, an old singer sewing machine (I now have two) it is fully intact and functioning,
but does need some tender loving care, it came with an original book, and I purchased a little box of spare parts in addition.
I have always found it difficult to get good wool locally, last week I was thrilled to find this wool, an Eco wool that is 100% undyed virgin wool, at a local store, I love the earthy colours and I managed to find some cute buttons too, heart shaped wooden ones, and flecked ceramic ones.
In the last few weeks there have been four births to friends, some entering the world rather unusually, Sophie was born in the back seat of her parents car at a local petrol station, and has made headlines on a number ofnewspaperswhile her Mum, Andrea has been talking about the experience on radio too. There are still two babies due to be born, Ana at Boladeberlin is expecting her first any day now. Leiny and I have been knitting baby gifts each evening trying to keep up with the birth rate. This pattern the Aviatrix Baby Helmet is used by the knitters on Ravelry and Leiny found it on Just Jussi, who has some amazing baby knits. We have four finished in different colours (two without the strap).
Last Sunday, I finally managed to get motivated and make the cushion covers for the living room, I have the fabric for over a year, and just never got the time up until now. The living room now looks like it had a mini makeover.
I made this little gingham cushion for Morris. It looks very cute with the CK throw.
Here is a little update on the granny squares. I am not sure which colour I should use to join them together. Any ideas?
I am a community worker I was working full time until my cancer diagnosis in October 2013. I have been interested in crafts all my life. I am always knitting or sewing. I love the different seasonal crafts and spending time with family and friends.
