This is a seriously uncut honest version of my regular WIP Wednesday post. The week has ran away with me which is very unlike me but I am a bit stretched family wise for any crafting. Anyway here is a hotchpotch of underwhelming chaos that has made up my life this week...
My dress for the Minerva meet up. I hit a stumbling block but Louise from There she Sews came round on Monday and sorted out the armpit gussets! I know, did you know they even exist - she did, which is why she is a great sewing friend to have.
A purchase of a new box to put my sewing patterns in. It is empty and the patterns are still all over the house, on bookcases, in drawers, under beds and behind the sofa. Nice box though.
We are going away next week and I have started packing or at least hiding clothes in the spare room to stop the girls from wearing them. What have they been wearing this week I wonder?
I have been trying to start the Miette cardigan to take as my holiday project but I have unpicked it three times and resorted to my mother reading out the instructions as I knit it - now that is what I call a knit-a-long! Then she left me with it all perfect and I cocked it up on the following evening. So I have unpicked(each stitch) back to row 10, made a note on the pattern where I am and stuffed it under the sofa.
So what does a girl do craft wise? Crack on with my summer cotton pullover? This has been frogged once because it would have fit Pavarotti if I had carried on with the hook and size choice I made - tension square Duh!
There is all this sort of 'stuff' (nearly swore then) to sort out as each meal passes.
I dropped my beautiful lemon squeezer jug. Grr!
Children, picking up, washing blah! blah!
And finally a very neglected wild flower jug which I keep looking at every time I walk in through the door. I must move that hairband, drinking straw wand handcrafted by one of my own and the dying flowers.
So on the cusp of greatness I would surmise but not quite there today. How is your week going folks?
