On Saturday we had some friends round for dinner and, I wanted to get the house cleaned up ready for their visit. I decided to start with my sewing area. The idea being to move from there through into the kitchen and then on through the rest of the ground floor of the house. I started off quite well except that cleaning turned into rearranging and, that turned into reorganising which, was quite time-consuming and, meant that the rest of the house didn't get much of a clean!! I am, however, very pleased with the new layout in my sewing area!!!
As I was busy with sorting out the house and, preparing the food, I haven't had much time for actual sewing. I have started work on my sew-a-long project but, I can't show you that because that would spoil the surprise when we show and tell our first projects on Martina's blog.
I did also manage to get a little crochet project finished too but, I can't show you that either because it is a gift and I don't want the recipient to see it before it is given but, here is a hint!
I didn't get any more of my rediscovered teapot cosy finished but, I did decide that tea cosies were the thing to knit/crochet and ordered myself this lovely book 'Tea Cosies 4' which is published by GMC Publications Limited and, which arrived at the end of last week. So be prepared to see a lot more tea cosies made!!
Rearranging my sewing area also convinced me that I needed to make a new cover for one of the stools I have in there. So I fast tracked that project in front of everything else and have now started work on a crocheted cover for my stool. This is how it looks so far.... I know it is only the size of a coaster now but it will be a cover for my stool by the time I have finished!!
Oh and, I was given two beautiful bouquets of flowers this weekend which has made the house look lovely (even if it is still dusty!)....
So that is it... my weekend... how was your weekend?
