Hello everyone. Well I am a naughty blogger, not posting since Thursday. Terrible! Truth be told, there wasn’t much to blog about. Rubbish weekend with lots more rain but no opportunities to sew. But the week is looking brighter although sewing progress has been a little hampered by social duties but I don’t mind that so much.
We have done some of this:-
Yep, homemade playdough. Little J looks very pleased with his green, glittery fish and chips doesn’t he. We got the dough things out at the weekend due to the rain and discovered that a lot of it had dried up and gone crumbly. So we set to yesterday and made some fresh. Its so nice and soft and squishy and goes through all the dough machines really easily. Little J really enjoyed making it too. Lots of stirring.
I have also been ploughing on with this:-
Most of my evenings have been filled with making squares for the blanket because I was feeling like I had neglected it for a while when I was playing with my cottons. This is where all the unjoined blanket pieces usually live. It used to be one of those boxes for keeping baby change stuff in from when Big J was a baby. It was sitting in the attic/workroom getting in the way and I decided it was perfect for the blanket yarns (instead of a big heap on the floor in the corner!). Quite a lot of squares made now. Definitely enough for another strip to be sewn together and probably plenty left over for the next. Here’s another picture for you so you can see all the lovely blanket goodness to come.
