This week I got some new mail. I was very very excited to get my latest VOODOO RABBIT toy club. I do have a confession though shhh... I haven't sewn my last one! I do have the pattern cut out at least. Other projects have taken priority.
I do have a concert coming up in a couple of weeks and I will need something to add to the raffle so I will have to get myself into gear and start sewing something. It will probably be a giraffe or a hippo.
I have been practicing my calligraphy skills because I want to be able to use pretty writing in my journal. When I was a kid I got given a calligraphy set to learn how to write and I still have the book which was very exciting to find.
So I've been having a go and I'm having a ball. My writing isn't always neat but it looks better than it did. I will be showing you more another day because I want to talk to you about how my journal/memory planning is going but this is something I've been working on throughout the week. It is so fun to use calligraphy pens.
I also managed to finish my ZickZack Dishcloth. It looks awesome! Well at least I think so.... which has got to be a bonus. I know I had to back track a couple of times with this cloth as I got distracted and forgot to count properly but once I got into the pattern it was easy to follow. I did add one more repeat of the pattern as I found it wasn't very big.
If I was to do it again I would add another 6 stitches to the width. ( If you do add width the pattern is multiples of 6 + 10 for the border. So one more to the width would be 36 +10 which is 46 )
I just realised I seem to have a thing for zigzags at the moment. I've also been working on my Chevron Triangle Quilt for my friend's baby but I will show more of that later. There are too many pictures to show.
