What's on my sewing table today....?






As usual too many to count (including work projects and projects for other people..)







...there is always a few wip's (work in progress)








This is a pretty one...







My second hotch-potch blouse.....






Using the popular Burda 7798 again...see HERE for my first attempt






This is a sneaky peek at a future project....







I am so very happy with the way it has come together.







...those fabric colours are so fresh and spring like, whilst the weather outside is the opposite.


'Ring a roses' Gutermann Fabrics available from Butterfly Bright 

They are a dream to work with.
I will reveal the finished garment soon...promise!






I  find inspiration everywhere,  inspiration leads to plans,
plans lead to future projects, future projects lead to wips, and that all adds up to...







Do you have any future plans? ... what inspired you today?

 Where are you on the creative cycle?

A sparkly wrist warmer crochet how to...





I have recently taken up my hook and yarn, because its that time of year for crochet.

Cosy evenings by the fireside, crocheting and watching tv, snuggled under a blanket with the cat and dog competing for lap space!







 I made a pair of wrist warmers, and then another and another...I had planned to give them as christmas gifts...

BUT...
 after proudly displaying them on my instagram feed I promptly sold them!







Therefore I thought you might like to see how I made them, so if you are a crocheter you can make your own?

The Details:

Crochet hook size 4, used throughout.

The yarn I used has tiny sparkly sequins in it and is pure joy to make up.

this is the cream...



James C Brett 'Aria' a double knit yarn, in a mohair, wool and acrylic mix.

It comes in soft, subtle colours as well as black and red for christmas...exciting stuff.



The How to:



Fold in half....


























Bestest wishes to you all for the week ahead..
