Having been caught in the hell that is Telstra, we have had really slow internet speeds which seems to make blogging a chore. Still, perhaps with less internet, there has been more activity and so I have some new things to show off.
Firstly, I started my Doris Chan, Sweet Tea some time ago – I think it was in early February and I always struggled with the pattern. I don’t think the problem is with the pattern, I just never quite got my head around it. As things progressed, I got better but then with one thing and another it was put down for a while. Of course, that is deadly because then you have to get your head around the stuff all over again. I am pleased that I did because even though I had to redo some of it (the straps and the neckline), I am pleased with the result. It is a comfortable item to wear and I have already had comments. Not that you could tell from this very bad photo of me with it on.
I think it looks better here
I was also able to finish the bean bag I was making for Gryff. This pattern was pretty easy to follow but unlike some things I make, I don’t feel I want to make another one straight away. Not that I couldn’t – I have enough fabric left over but perhaps there is a matching quilt cover or pillow or something else in his future.
