Thanks so much for all the comments yesterday. I was a bit worried that my idea looked a bit mad from the outside, but I’m now much reassured! Speaking of comments, while I love WordPress for other features, the only thing I don’t like is that people don’t get notified when I reply to them. I *do* reply (or at least try to) to every comment, and I really wish there was a way to let people know I’m talking to them!
*waves at internet* I’m definitely talking to you! Thanks for talking back 😉
Today’s Finished Object should, of course, have been my cowl, but I’ve run into a bit of a dilemma over it, so I’ve decided to let it sit over the weekend while I work out what I want to do.
Instead, I’m totally going to cheat and show you something I completed a while back but I don’t think I blogged about.
I picked up some light, incredibly soft flannel at Darn it and Stitch, along with these lovely vintage buttons. I love how I can wrap it up tight around my neck to keep out the wind, or just let it hang loose like a regular scarf. With the recent change in the weather in the UK, I pulled it out of the garage last week and have worn it every day since. The pattern is simple and clever, and only took me an hour or so to make. Check it out!
And do you remember yesterday that I mentioned my cunning plan for keeping track of my projects over the next year? Ta da!
To you that may just look like a row of brown paper bags, but to me, this is the promise of projects to come. My idea is to label each bag with a month, then put the supplies for each month’s projects in them. Then at the beginning of the month, I just have to grab the bag and away I go! I’m also going to parcel up ‘spare’ materials with patterns, so that if I want to mix and match, it’s all ready to go and I don’t go out and buy something specially to start making.
How’s that for a cunning plan? The bags were ridiculously cheap from ebay and are just what I wanted, so I’m feeling rather smug right now 🙂
