Handmade Monday #119

Well the last week has zipped passed as usual, spent a boring 2 hours at the garage whilst the car had it's MOT, passed, yippee!

Not made as much this week been pattern drafting the results of which should appear within a couple of weeks. Plus gardening, jet hosing the patio and paths etc. DH has a long list of things to do and always seems to involve my input, purely on a supervisory level of course.

Makes for this week another random knit waistcoat this time in strawberry

Using up the left over wool a pom pom hat

Finally had a go at embroidery onto cards, the writing did not work as pulled and split the card but the design worked well.

After some major problems the past 2 years with website hosting have decided to close my website at the end of June. Will load all my stock onto my Folksy shop. I know a lot of advice is to have your own website but tbh do better at face to face events and on Facebook. Think I have also got to the age when I want to downsize a lot of what I have and do more of the things I want to do. Retirement is to be embraced and enjoyed. Will still do my sewing and card making but not to the volume I have in the past.

See you all next week

  1. I'm so pleased to hear your car is all goog, what a relief. I'm assuming the website closure will mean no more blog posts letting us know what you're up to. I'll have to make sure I keep up to date on FB :-)


Thank you for your comments. I do appreciate the time and trouble taken to comment and will publish as soon as possible.
