Hmmm… Well I missed yesterday didn’t I…
But then its day 7 and 4 out of 7 is pretty good… for me! Lol!
This morning I finally got started on one of Emma’s christmas presents. A pair christmas pyjamas! I’m making a full set for her, a pair of bottoms for me in the same material and a different pair of bottoms for Vince. The plan is to start a new tradition for our little family of new hand sewn pjs to snuggle up in on christmas eve!
After fearing I was never actually going to get going(!) I started and finished Emma’s bottoms this afternoon. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to do tomorrow as we’ll be at church in the morning and Vince works the afternoon, which leaves very few Emma free hours for sewing, but I hope to have Emma’s set finished by Tuesday.
I am loving the way the trousers have turned out though. It’s the first pattern I’ve drawn out myself and this is only the second time I’ve tried it and I’m so proud of myself! Although the top is making me nervous… sleeves are not my friends.
This evening I have settled on the sofa with some Saturday night tv and spent a little time browsing online. Vince has just got home so now we will have a drink and a catchup while I do a little easy crochet. I’m working up a long length of granny stripes in very cheap and cheerful acrylic from my stash, it will eventually become a draught excluder.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
