I have decided to take a break from blogging.
Sometimes I feel it is necessary to take a step back to see things clearly. In recent weeks I have not felt like blogging, so I am taking the rest of the summer off, and hopefully I will come back in September with a spring in my step... September is quite possibly my favourite month of the year; my birthday month of May is a close second.
I found the most delightful embroidered tablecloth last week in a junk shop... it is small and I don't know if I will keep it, sell it or cut it up for patchwork yet...love the colours and I am toying with making some sort of quilt with the vintage fabric in the first picture...
Still plodding along with this blanket when the mood takes me... I very much hope this will be finished by September. It nearly ended up as a knitting bag, but I have lost one of my bamboo handles. I took this as a sign that I shouldn't make a bag. Now more squares have been added to the blanket, the handle will turn up in some bizarre place!
Found this pretty lilac embroidered tablecloth last week in a charity shop; it is a good size on a lovely white linen background. You may be looking at a new pouffe cover... although I know me and I would turn into Mrs Annoying if anyone tried to put their feet on it, so maybe not on second thoughts.
One thing I do know is this shawl WILL be finished for September... I could do with wearing it now, never mind in the Autumn.
I hope you all have an enjoyable summer/winter with many happy tales to tell along the way x
