Hello to a new week....and a beautiful day.
I do love Autumn weather, the cooler evenings see us coming inside earlier
which means I get much more crocheting done.


Above is a photo of my first crocheted scarf that I made. I started it over Easter while camping, it still has the smell of camp fire in it....
It was a good beginners pattern.


I am nearly finished my next project which is a lamp shade cover, I know it doesn't look like it yet. No pattern for this I am just making it up as I go along....Just got the edging to finish and then I will show you.


I am using Trap Art yarn for this mat. I discovered this while in Ipswich and haven't been able to get any more as no one sells it around us.
So I am now a supplier, my first order should arrive this week....I can't wait to get this finished, I think it will be for the lounge room.


The sewing machine has been brought into the house, as I have no sewing room again....We have Cassie's boyfriend living in Donna the Donga until he goes up north....Over the week end I just had to sew so in every thing came.....I made Kayleigh, Bruce's daughter some pillow cases she wanted.


Do you like my darling tray table, I picked it up last week end for $8, it matches my chair perfectly I think....

Yep I sure do enjoy the earlier evenings see how productive I've been? Mind you the house is a mess and I have 2 baskets of ironing I could be catching up on....Nah tomorrow I think I will go out into the garden....

Blessings

  1. Lovely crochet pieces. I think the lamp shade covered with crochet will look amazing, especially the shadows it will cast when the lamp is on.
    What a bargain for the tray table, pretty and practical. x

  3. I used to have a tray table like that when I was a teenager (I used to eat my dinner watching TV while mum and dad sat at the dining table).
