a few weeks ago, but doing a small sample doesn't really get you into that "wavey" mode does it? Anyway I decided that the wool that I had to make a cushion for daughter was going to be a ripple cushion. I started it a couple of nights ago:-
Ohhhh! the ripplesome joy - now I know why so many of you love rippling - its so theraputic, the motion of it, but also the neat order of it - LOVELY! so now I am hooked so to speak, but I will have to tear myself away for a while, after the cushion is finished because I have to work on the cot blanket - if you remember a friend as asked me to make one for her baby grand daughter. I have finally decided to make the blanket in treble relief stitch which makes quite a dense but light fabric and it will be baby pink which will be a bit strange after all the colour I have been working with lately!
Sorry the piccie isn't very clear but you can see that it makes a sort of "wafflee" type fabric and I shall do a nice edging around it.
I have been into town today to look for a couple of birthday presents (left it last minute) and I just happened to see a couple of items that just screamed Buy Me!: I tried to walk away but it was no good, I had to buy them - I will show you tomorrow what is in the bag:-
Finally I will leave you with a picture of the lovely flowers I bought today - they were reduced and although I am not usually a fan of chrysanthems (remind me of sad times) I love the colours of these and they go so well with the deep red don't you think?
Enjoy your afternoon, speak soon xx
