As I mentioned in my last post, I have been feeling very low in energy lately, so I have only been doing the things that really need doing and trying to accept that things are slower for me right now. I have been eating a lot of chocolate to keep me going ( false energy…) and drinking more tea and coffee than I usually do.
We have just come back from a weekend away, spending lots of time outdoors and as a family, which has been really relaxing – just the tonic we all needed! Thank goodness we allowed ourselves this time away as I now feel ready for the busy half term holidays (seeing friends every day…) and getting ready for my eldest daughter’s birthday and party next Monday.
I thought I would share what I have been up to on the making front.
I finished off the two pairs of curtains I made for our lounge and bedroom and already things are feeling a bit cosier at home. The nights are drawing in fast and it is lovely to be able to draw the curtains on the encroaching darkness.
Apart from that I am still working on my eldest daughter’s sweater. I am onto the yoke finally and onto the colour work. Wish me luck! It’s the first time I have tried this technique!
My daughter’s birthday is next Monday. The jury is still out on whether I will get it knitted and finished in time. I am also sewing my daughter a tiered skirt from this pattern that I have used several times before.
I only have the elastic to add now and to make a matching little skirt for her Waldorf doll 🙂
I always ask my daughters to choose their own fabric and pattern when I make them something to ensure it is something that they really want. It is always a one-off and I know they like that! They are too old and opinionated now about what they wear to just take a chance!
I hope you are enjoying some quiet crafting too!
