Getting Slack – but I have been busy

Whoopsy – so I forgot my password and then had trouble resetting it (blonde moment ) but I’m all set again.

So what have I been up to……….

Knitting –

I’ve finished my Fairy swaps (well one the other one needs finishing touches which are turning out far more annoying than the actual main part)

I don’t think she reads my blog so I think I’m safe to post 🙂

twinkletoes

hand dyed wool – Cleckheaton country Naturals – that is what the black spots are in it. Now I don’t know how to do those fancy links but the pattern is Twinkletoes and is found on knitty.

What else….

I’ve just finished testing a knitting pattern for Gabes http://sweetp-knits.blogspot.com/ which she is hoping to have available for sale soon with money going towards childcancer research – WTG Gabes 🙂 I used the wool that I hand dyed in a previous post 🙂

Izzy didn’t want to play model as she was too busy imitating Dad with her eyes glued to the box

And a pic of Em as she was a more willing model today

and also some sewing……

A few tutus for Bumbles shop – this one is watermelon 🙂

A 70’s Retro Dress made from fabric from the clearance table at spotlight $2/m – bargain 😉 – the pattern is based on a pillowcase dress, but with some shirring and ruffles added. I love it and so does Izzy 🙂 I might try and figure out how to make myself one lol.

Another Tutu – Inspired by Disneys Monsters inc 🙂 – this one is for a friends DD which was part of a swap (she got one of my original trial tutus before I got these ones perfected so this is a nicer version … I still feel sorry for the people who tried my first ones as these ones are 100x nicer – I’m sure the quality of the tulle has made all the difference 🙂
