I did so little gardening today - none in fact. Unless you count buying some large pots and herb & vege potting mix ready for the herb garden on the front deck.
Oh, and some trellis wire for the vege beds.
But I did do some
After childcare drop off, garden shopping, and literacy groups at L6's school I made it to the Chermside Library for the fortnightly Sisters of Stitch (SOS) group.
Honestly, some of the work being done among the groups members is absolutely exquisite!
But I was just working on something simple.
The day after refashioning the felted vest last week a note came home from L6's school asking for volunteers & donations for the Mother's Day stall next term. I thought about what I could do and had a brain wave to make some more of the Suffolk Puff flowers as brooches. They should be popular with the kids. I even already have brooch backs.
The reason it is possible is that the Clover Yo-yo maker really does speed up the process, compared with the usual template method. Yo-yo is another name for Suffolk Puffs.
|My output thus far, with the small & large Yo-yo makers & a jar of buttons.|
Here is something else I saw at SOS. A lady opposite was knitting with this beautiful soft grey wool, and after a while this is what the ball looked like.
Mel has really made me start to look at ordinary things more closely. Have a look at some of her fabrics here.
