In this episode: The style goddess; I Can Make Shoes; the button makes the knitwear (I have always said this); a return to form; Esther; and The Talisman.
I wish I had thought to save the image of my style goddess to share with you. Alas.
The Stitching show was fun, if a bit short on yarn. Next year, I’m going to Wonderwool.
That said, I am pretty happy with this button. (Left: new button; right: with the incorrect button it replaced.
I Can Make Shoes, and so can you. Check them out.
Things wot I’ll be doing this weekend instead of watching the Coronation: SWATCHING! (Left: The Talisman Jacket and the yarn I bought for embroidery; centre: I found a white marker that works on dark fabric! Like Frixion ink, it disappears with heat; right: the worst of the damage on the collar of the jacket.)
Pics of yarn are not really very interesting. But this will be Esther, someday. I’m swatching this too.
And there will be some awesome sewing to talk about next time, as we try to avoid watching an old man receive a very expensive hat, made with stolen gems. Thankfully, this is easier to do in Wales than nearly anywhere else.
