So in the spirit of " Let us try again one more time" .......... Here we go!
Last night I spent a frustrating hour trying to get my post published.
Three parts to it: my knitted Christmas Bell, the little knitted shoulder bag and 2 more Spider web Blocks.
First of all the whole post seemed to be OK, then mysteriously the first part about the knitted Bell disappeared and it seemed as though the last 2/3 of the post was OK, so I re-wrote and published the bit about the Christmas Bell. THEN I discovered that that was the only piece of the whole thing that had been posted. At that point I admitted defeat, the computer had won, and off I went to bed.
New dawn, new day, so I am going to try again. My generation was brought up on the maxim; "If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again'!
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.
At the weekend I knitted a pretty little shoulder bag to add to my Christmas Shoe box. It uses two colours of wool that you knit together which gives a pretty marbling effect. I chose a deep pink and a lilac. Together they create a completely different colour.
Last week I made a Spider web block for my Patchwork Group's quilt that we are making for one of our members. It was then decided that we needed more blocks so I offered to make two more.
I enjoy making these blocks and as I already have a stash of strips they are quick to make.
Here's the two extra I made yesterday afternoon:
Nice and bright and scrappy, just what I like in a quilt - and, more importantly what the recipient of this quilt likes.
I also trimmed my Wonky Stars quilt and sewed on the bindings. That's ready for me to hand sew whilst I'm at my Patchwork Group on Thursday morning.
I have just looked back at the To Do List that I posted on 19th September. I'm really rattling through that list. Once the binding on Wonky Stars is sewn and I have finished knitting the beanie I started yesterday whilst watching TV, I will have ticked them all off the list. Hurrah.
Now I am holding my breath as I try to publish this post. Here goes!
