Weekly Update

Greetings Friends,

I hope you have enjoyed my no sew cowl tutorial, I had been wearing mine loads.

So in the continuing saga of the broken sewing machine, I am useless and still haven’t organised a box to send it to the manufacturers. Bad Maggie! It’s very frustrating not having it available to play with so my priority for this weekend is box hunting.

A few birthdays are coming up so I’ve been whipping up a few projects. My partners mum was thrilled with the Bias Blanket I knitted and it now takes pride of place on her sofa. I’m currently crocheting a lacy cowl from Inside Crochet for a friend’s birthday.
I am doing it in a brushed chunky grey yarn. She’s so stylish I knew she would like something original and she loves statement looks. It’s also my niece’s birthday coming up so I plan to get a doll for her and crochet a bunch of outfits for it so she can play dress up.

The hexagon patchwork is coming along slowly I have now joined two rows together and taken the card out of some to make it easier to work with.

As usual I have been distracted by another new craft and I have started a creative journal/smash book/art journal. I was inspired by the likes of Teesha Moore. She makes amazing patchwork journal covers and has videos on youtube of how you can make them yourself. The journal pages are also amazing, lots of lovely colours textures and layers. So far I have done two pages and very much enjoying it.

 This is the cover of my journal and I'm looking forward to making more pages.
