cough, cough, cough!
I thought I was pretty on task for all my crafting for up coming markets, but I hadn't taken into account we might all get sick! My sewing table is in our bedroom, which is currently a quarantine zone for my husband so sneaking in for some sewing time is out of the question. To be honest I don't feel one bit like sewing anyway. But in order to feel like I'm actually doing something, I've been doing a little bit of rustic hand sewing.
I found a woollen picnic blanket for $1 at my local thrift store. It was marked as a pet blanket, ie. suitable for only pets to sleep on due to the fact it had a few holes. The colours appealed to me, I love green and red and I could easily work around the holes! I thought it would be good for some decorations. So over the past few days, I've been stitching a few little pohutukawa flowers. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to finish them, I was thinking they might look good as circles - but that might change. It's been the perfect little project to tend to between tending to patients.
Better late than never, congratulations to Lisa of Big little the winner of the bean seeds! I'll pop them in the post this week for you.
