We have been so overwhelmingly busy this week with the new puppy. He sleeps so much….. aww look at cute sleeping puppy:
And yet, when he is awake you can’t turn your back for a second (all you dog owners knew this didn’t you…?). So everything, frankly, has become completely chaotic, with no housework done for days, piles of washing everywhere, and I haven’t started the autumn clear up in the garden…
So while Mr Barney was sleeping this afternoon, I decided to sort my Liberty scraps – concentrating on the priorities as usual. I should have folded out the table though:
The other thing I have been working on this week is a new cushion tute, using one of these wonderful lacy zips from Coats that go on the outside. Very cool to make a zip a feature, and it does make it so much easier to sew into place. However, I have only managed to half finish the cushion top – it is still sitting in my sewing machine, under the presser foot. Here’s a little glimpse – it looks slightly over the top in close-up:
Hopefully, the end result will be a little less intense!
Amongst all the craziness, my mind seems to have developed sieve-like properties… but I’ve finally got round to making the draw for the knitting book giveaway:
The winner is number 13, Leonor, who makes the most gorgeous felted creations (check out her Facebook and Etsy – how much would I like a little felted Barney – so much quieter than the real thing…). Congratulations to you Leonor, I will be in touch…
