Was hoping to have finished this last Thursday, when Tuesday morning I suddenly found myself with almost no energy because of something that happened Monday night.
I have no control over the whole situation and rather not go into that here. Plus, I’m pretty sure everyone who follows me on Twitter, who follow this, want me to stfu about it.
The friend I’m doing this for said to take my times, so there is much less pressure on me. I want to be done with this soon, so I can give it to him and be finally done.
I’m having issues attaching the sides to the back. Once I’m past that, the rest will be a breeze.
I finished the pillow for my cousin. It’s really simple and I’m chuffed it looks pretty decent.
My sewing skills need more practice, at this point in time.
Progress on the shawl.
I’ve not finished up all the triangles, but started attaching each row.
To take a picture, I folded it in half. The second row down’s bits aren’t weaved in.
It looks a bit odd, but will look much better when it’s finished and blocked.
I had so much fun knitting The Knob House, that I’m knitting a second house.
I’m not doing it the same way as last time.
In case, anyone was wondering, I decided to go with Big Cartel for an online shop. Looks like I need to change the seller’s permit but I’m good with the other stuff. For the time being, it will be under my name. Need to call BOE tomorrow. It would be annoying if I have to completely fill out a new permit with everything the same except the name. I do like the other name but I’m tired of waiting. It’s hard but I need to have more faith in myself. I’ve been putting it off and it’s time. When it’s finally open, I’ll link to it in my About page.
I added a little more to the pullover’s sleeves and finished this top.
I’m tempted to make a small cowl to the neck but I like it the way it is.
I have tried it on and it’s plenty loose and oversized.
I posted this fabric on Instagram and reposted it on Twitter which reposted onto Facebook.
My cousin saw it and requested a pillow made with it.
The pillowcase measures 12.5 by 18.5 inches.
Have to gather up enough fabric scraps to make the pillow form to insert into the case, then I can send it to her.
This former baby blanket has been sitting in the pile of fabric for To-Dos.
I’ve been wanting a little bag to hold all my tools in one place but not sure this will be it.
I’ve got a huge pile of projects to do.
This is a huge project, in itself.
My friend Mike came by and dropped it off in July. I originally agreed to fix the holes and the main zipper but decided to just make him a new one.
I’m somewhat in over my head because I didn’t keep the pieces in their right piles and sewing it by memory. I should have taken pictures as I took it apart.
The back is pretty much done.
Now for the rest.
He’ll have it by next week. It won’t be perfect but that’s what happens. I’m not a factory.
I’ve finally decided to open an online store, as opposed to putting things off again, because I need to get rid of things that are just taking up space.
Thing is I can’t decide between Supadupa and Big Cartel. I’m leaning towards Big Cartel because I want to start smaller.
I’ll link to it here and on my Instagram when it’s all settled. It will be under my name.
