IT is my very favourite time, with the heat behind us and the promise of cooler weather.
Cooler weather always makes me want to get in and sew, and now that Donna
is all clean I am enjoying sewing in her. I have been making aprons.
I also needed to put some new lace on some of my half slips and petticoats.
Most of the dresses these days are too short for my liking so I wear a 
half slip with a little vintage lace showing.

The big news is
I can knit!!!!!!
This skill has evaded me for years no matter how I tried....Well I got this Learn to Knit book from Lincraft with some other purchases free...It has been so help full that every thing has just clicked.
Below I present you with my very own first dish cloth...........

All right be nice girls hahaha
With the cooler weather and knitting :) reminds me I know longer
have my wood heater in the house as it got pulled out in the kitchen renos.

We have awhile yet before we will need it but we need to make a decision where to 
put it. The only option really is in this corner as the rest of the room is all windows.

As you can see below..
It will take up alot of room putting it in the corner, but I don't think I can give up my wood heater.
This house gets really cold in winter.

Enjoy your week
I am going to knit another dishcloth and then when I catch up with my Mum at the end of the month
she is going to teach me to crochet , then I can put little crochet edges around my dishcloths...
And no I can't crochet either...

  1. I love that apron, Mandy. I can do basic knitting and crochet and hope to improve my skills this year now that it is getting cooler. I wish we had a wood heater again as our house is very cold in winter too. Your renovations look lovely.
