My last two posts seem to have developed
a poetic theme. Must be something to do with
'Full many a flow'r is born to blush unseen',
These images conjure up Spring for me
in our little garden, what did I find this week.
peeping out from the foliage.
It gave me such a lift.
I smiled all day.
Not much craft work to show and tell
about this week.
I have been working very hard on the Fairisle sweater.
I'm onto the armholes, which proved difficult, to set the pattern.
I had one false start, as the pattern was not
lining up. Had to undo it but on the right track now.
It's very logical but I'm not!!
Last Sunday, I was very excited to be the highest bidder
on Ebay, for a group of vintage, rag rug tools.
As the last few seconds ticked by, I found myself
dancing around my work room,
in high excitement.
Not very decorous, you may say but fun!
The first craft skill, I learned, after knitting, was
rag rugging. The scissor-like tool on the left
of the photo, is called a 'speed rugger'.
I have one all ready but it is made of wood and fragile.
I look forward to using this more robust looking tool.
I haven't made a rug for some time but I have one in my minds eye.
My next project, when the commission is done.
This is one of my rugs
I have a busy weekend, lined up
In the pop-up shop in Harrogate, for part of the day, today.
Only a week left, so if you're in the area.
You're sure of a friendly welcome.
I'm also looking after a flock of Chinese Geese, for a friend.
Life's never dull.
Hope they're friendly.
I'll let you know.
Have a great weekend everyone x
