Catching up…

You will surely have noticed that there have been hardly any pictures in my posts recently. I have had problems getting them onto the site. I have spent many hours puzzling it out but with no answer. Which is why I haven’t really updated very much of late.

Our older lad was here the night before last and asked me what I was muttering about?(I was actually sitting here feeling rather annoyed because I couldn’t get the photos where I needed them to be).
After 10 mins fiddling about he managed a solution.

So here we are pictures again, at last! Yey!

We really need to catch up a bit here…The kimono that I started ages ago is done. It started out life as a white cotton curtain, with two layers. The first was an open weave cotton with lovely white swirls printed on (from a distance they look like embroidery but they aren’t) and the second a tighter, slightly heavier cotton.

To begin with, I never wear white. It gets too grubby too quickly! I bought some lavender coloured dye a while ago. It ended up in a sale rack for around 10p.
Dumped in dye then onto the line to dry.

Each time I got this curtain out to cut up, something happened. Whether it be a phone call or whatever. Sometimes just put on the shelf while other jobs took over. This went on for a couple of weeks!

Eventually it was cut out and sewn together, now my new kimono.

Also some hand embroidery for my hubby’s birthday, made into a coaster. This photo isn’t that great, it’s much nicer in real life.

For Fluffy Red’s birthday this rather nice (if I do say so myself!) jewellery roll.
