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:
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:
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:
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!
