Have finished my Lucy bag as in Attic24 - I squeezed in some time this afternoon to finish the handles and sew them on, then I raided this:-
my Mum's button tin - which she has passed on to me. Its amazing what memories a button tin holds, there was a button from my school mac amongst others, which considering I am now 50 has been in there a long time! Anyway I chose some buttons which I think were from my Nana so even older and here is the finished bag:-
Its Certainly colourful! I wish I had made it in a stronger, thicker yarn, but maybe next time. I have already filled it with wool - I don't think it could cope with anything much heavier!
Now on to the next project. I have been planning the cot blanket I mentioned the other day and have drawn the design for a square out on paper the drawing below comprises of four squares:-
Each square has clusters in the shape of a heart in the middle and clusters around the edges. I will do a sample square to see how it looks and to work out how many I will need to make, and maybe show you tomorrow.
My other project ready to start is a cushion for my daughter. I have picked these colours
because this is the colour scheme in her bedroom. Can't decide whether to try a ripple cushion along the lines of the very pretty one that Mrs Twins made, or different coloured granny squares, hmmm will give it some thought. Thank you for the nice comments I have had already, didn't expect anyone to even find me!!
