Working with this fabric...
|(which is on a red background, even if this looks orange!)|
...and being reminded of the dresses my sister and I had in it. They were the same pattern as below (that's me with my knickers on show! Flippin' 'eck, we wore our dresses short in them days!), white dart-shaped bodice and the cheery peeps, lanterns and buggies below. My Mum made us lovely things - thanks!
I'm using a small piece of it to make this...
I am quietly confident that this will not be a 'project from hell' like the scarf.
But that's another favourite thing, because I have now finished the rows with the dreaded '7 stitch wrap' (which turns out to be 'smocking stitch' of a sort)
and am onto the rows with only 'yo' and 'sl1, k2tog, psso' to keep track of!
And last of all for today, this tablecloth, from a local charity shop.
Sadly it is damaged.
Why do I say sadly?
Secretly I actually rejoice when I find one that is damaged, because if it's in good condition I can't bring myself to cut it up.
I'm going to try something a bit alternative with this one.
I'll show it if it works out okay...
I'm linking up with Mimi and Tilly today.
Do hop over and see what favourites others are sharing. There's sherbet dib dabs for a start!
