Do you know I can't remember when I actually started this blanket
but it feels like a long time ago.
I must check my archives to see.....but yayyyyyy its done now
& in situ in my bedroom.
I have to say it most def is NOT my fav, guess I'm just glad I'm done
with it....here's a few peeks
I like it here on the back of my bed,
feels restful & dreamy & matches the colours there.
Isn't it so satisfying to have your own makes around the house
makes it all so personal & imperfect in the nicest way!!!!
So whats next.......I'm thinking a nice shawl.
Have two weddings coming up & would love a dreamy soft feminine
wrap to wear with the dresses I have for them.
If anyone knows some good pattern links I'd sure would
First dress fittings today, always make up a trial top of the dress
in some cheap fabric first to make sure of the fit (learnt that in college,
my technical tutor was a stickler for a perfect fit).
Old habits die hard I think.
Its always funny though to see the reaction of the wearer....
IS THIS MY DRESS!!!!!!!
& I have to reassure them that I know it looks like
nothing & not to get excited....but the REAL dress will
actually look like a dress!!!!
The first one has to be done by this time next week, the
Bride is from Latvia & her sister is here for another week
sooooooooo dress number one coming up fast.
Anyway the weekend is here & I have friends
coming for dinner tomorrow, desserts need to be
made, veggies have to be peeled & chopped, plus
I promised a nice pasta dish for dinner today, fresh tomatoes & herbs
are waiting to be thrown together
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend
Lots of love Karen xxxx
