Thank you all for your warm wishes for Gorgeous Girl, she is well and truly on the mend now and has been keeping down her feeds. She is back to the usual puddle of drool that seems to be par for the course these days.
Since there has been a dearth lately of crafty content on what is ostensibly a craft blog, I thought you might like to see a few of the things currently on the needle(s).
Last night I finished quilting another block for the African Animal quilt and began a new one.
Gorgeous Girl is currently sleeping and I’m hoping to put in some quality time with this once this post is finished.
On Monday I began a crocheted sun hat in this brilliant yarn from The Secret Knitter.
The orange isn’t actually that bright in real life. See the background? It’s a box. My mum and brother gave me the box as a thank you for having them stay. It’s currently living in the living room at the side of the couch and is housing my WIPs.
Also on the needles is Mum’s sock in the pfau (peacock) yarn by Opal that she chose while she was here.
I made the bag in the background too.
Also on the needles, but having made no significant progress since the last time they were shown on the blog is the cardigan for charity and tiger socks for me.
After spending quality time with the quilt I’m hoping to get into the sewing room to sew some bibs from the pattern in my Christmas present, provided of course that Gorgeous Girl stays asleep.
I start back at work on Tuesday I’m teaching one class, so that’s only 5 hours a week. We are hoping to coordinate our timetables so that Gorgeous Man can watch the child when I’m teaching. The extra money will be nice and it’s only an hour a day. Hopefully it won’t eat into the crafting time too much; by the time I’ve packed up Gorgeous Girl, dropped her off with Gorgeous Man, taught the class, picked her up and walked home it’s about 2 hours total. Hmm, notice there was no mention of housework there lol. One good thing about the work is that I have to walk up and down a steep hill every day, very good for the figure.
Ok, enough rambling, off to hang the washing on the line – it’s a lovely day today in Cape Town, but stinking hot, and do some quilting.
Have a great day and if you’re a visitor who doesn’t comment (I won’t use the ‘L’ word) feel free to introduce yourself.
