Half term was quiet for me, a couple of lovely friends came over, I went to see my mum and dad, took the dog for walks and generally pottered around.
I brought two old pop-up tents home from school, which were no longer too keen on popping-up and were destined for the bin. A shame to put fabric to waste, I decided to make it into bunting which can be used at school.
I unpicked the edging strip which turned out to be perfect blind tape
and then started to cut out triangles with my scissors. I quickly realised it would be quicker and much more fun to cut with my rotary cutter.
I then stitched the triangles into the edging strip and hey presto! I put it up in our new room and I think it goes rather well with our orange blinds.
A few of the days in half term have been damp, grey and a bit miserable so I made my first hot chocolate of the season. Yum!
With the clocks going back I decided not to stay in bed an extra hour but get up and use it. I did the summer/winter wardrobe swap, pulled everything out of my very untidy wardrobe and colour coded it. What do we learn from this exercise? That I like grey and pink cardigans! It is looking rather neat in this picture, it will not stay like that but at least once a year it is tidy.
On the knitting front I am making another stripy cardigan from Drops Delight and Drops Alpaca. It is a Drops Pattern, I am not putting the lace bit in. It's bottom up in once piece and as it's 4ply the rows are long but no sewing up.And here's a close up because who doesn't like wooly loveliness?
That's me for now I think, have a super week.
