mid week stuff

Who would have thought that so many of you would love a bit of oven glove action! That was a really popular make, thanks for all of your comments. Other makes on the go this week include:


A small collection of homegrown Strawberries and the promise of lots more(I put down organic slug pellets today)


Few fiddly bits of fun crochet to use up left overs. I have a craft stall coming up so it is good to use up stash and not spend money on materials.
 

Making cards for the craft fair too.

Enjoying the monotony of this throw over top. Easy to relax with.


Messing about crocheting with embroidery threads and a 2.5 hook.


Got another Elise shawl started. I take it to the girls ballet lessons on Saturdays, it is my current portable project. 


What are you 'messing' about doing today?

  4. You have been busy. Unfortunately work has gotten in the way for me this week but when I do get a minute to spare it's been knitting and crocheting and blocking out of granny squares.

  5. It's always nice to see what you have on the go Jo, and your productivity never ceases to amaze me. I really like the oven gloves by the way, that free-style stitching came out really well. x

  8. I have been mending a pile of jeans and other clothes. Nothing exiting but very satisfying. I think I need to post about my urge to mend stuff. I love the cherry mug warmer, it is just so cute. Hope your craft stall will be a success! I am sure it will with all the lovely things you make. x

    1. A job well done, I don't overlook those sort of craft jobs as part of my 'make everyday' philosophy. Jo x

  9. Ahhhhh, you put me to shame! I have just been at work today, boooo. :( I did check on my strawberries earlier though and have a few I can pick soon. I also have pears growing on my pear tree for the first time which I am very excited about! Enjoy the craft fair, I am sure it will be a great success. :)

  11. Busy lady! I haven't crafted at all today. I did work on a ripple throw last night, got a whole stripe done! I hope to sit with it again tonight after the small Bears are in bed.

  12. Love messing about days and anything with strawbs or cherries gets my vote every time. I sooo need a messing about day, but for this week I'm resigned to them being rushing about days instead.
    Hugs xx
