Sunday Sunday...

Dah dah, da da dah... okay, I'll stop now.  I was thinking of Mama Cass singing "Monday Monday", actually, but that's still a whole 24 hours away, TG. I was singing in my head, too, because my poor WH has a sore throat & is quite the neanderthal, lying in bed watching bad Sunday morning TV (is there any other kind?) & whimpering from time to time.  In deference to his not-wellness, I will close the door on the small but perfectly formed room when I go in to start my (real) day, and as always, turn the music up really really loud... and remember what a great concert it was on Thursday night:

Today, whilst listening to Mr Costello, I will make a cover for Ms Scurvy, for her DS, using plain black fabric and these:

Apparently she has a bit of a skull fetish going on, and I've offered to make this into a pouch in return for her lovely Ma sewing this up for me:

PDF knitting pattern for Floral Wrap Cardigan

which I've kniited in lots of glorious colour, but haven't sewn up - I hate the sewing up part, everything should be knittable in one piece as far as I'm concerned.  I'm sure there's a way...

Anyway, when I finally get around to knitting up the band & finishing it off, I promise I will post a picture.  Honest.

What else?  Oh yes, these arrived:

Set of 3, Zippity Doo Dah Charm Packs by Sandy Gervais for Moda Fabrics  and I'm going to make these because six of these wrapped in ribbon is a great christmas gift for colleagues, close acquaintances, you know, the kind of people who you want to give something to, but it doesn't need to be big or hugely expensive - and everybody loves handmade, right?

And this arrived too:

WONDERLAND by Momo, for Moda Fabrics, 1 layer cake and I have no idea what I'm going to do with these, except I love these fabrics, and one 10 X 10 square gives you four 5 X 5 squares - isn't that amazing?  Maths, who knew?  Not me, that's for sure.  I made quite a lot of jumbo lavender bags earlier this year with these, what with Miss Mandy having a hairdresser friend, and Kaz having a friend known as the Butterfly... and speaking of Lavender, there's a card from the Post Office telling me the newest shipment of lovely lavender from Ratho has arrived - but that too is a job for Monday (morning, around 6.15am)...

But for now, the small but perfectly formed room and Elvis Costello are calling my name!

  1. Oh gorgeous, that is all just fabric porn! On a scale of 1-10 just how excited do you get when they land on your doormat! Love the coasters, that is a great pressie, i agree. Your 5"x5"s would be the right size for cutting out door handle hearts too. Or a nice doorstop square!
