One minute the leaves are luscious and green on the trees, the next minute they are turning red and falling to the ground.
I'm dreaming up fabric and crochet combinations and planning a Julie and Julia type exploration of the Sewing Clothes Kids Love book. I had plans of going through the book from front to back and sewing each pattern three times, once for each of my girls.
I'm confident I can follow the patterns...perhaps too confident.
She chose all the fabrics from my stash and told me which bit was meant to go where.
I quickly cut out all the pieces and started sewing.
I stitched together the front and back, the hood and one arm before I realised I was heading for a Silly Billy Dress type disaster.
The shirt doesn't fit over Indi's head, or Jazzy's head and after watching all the goings on, Pepper ran the other way when I looked towards her.
It seems I was in such a rush to get started that I didn't see that the fabric requirements are for knit fabrics or those with a stretchy aspect.
Just like that.
Out with the sewing, in with the crochet.
Crochet is so wonderful and portable and perfect for afternoons spent at the farm stall. Just like my new BYO coffee cup that I won over at What's For Tea. Thanks Anthea, I LOVE it.
I hope you are working on a project you love at the moment.
I wonder if you stick to it even when it doesn't work the first time.
Have fun out there. XX
