Happy Wednesday lovelies ❤️
The time has come again to look back on the past month. I’m not sure how much I will get done in the next few months, as we are planning our big move interstate by the end of August and I will be aways for most of September. One thing is sure, I’ll be busy!
Here are my yarny makes, I got one more of my LOTR squares finished, I finished a pair of socks and started a new pair. Oh and let’s not forget Dumbo, my cute deep sea octopus 🐙 (I’m hoping to have the pattern up next week).
I didn’t get much needlecraft done, actually I did but I had no finish, so nothing to show you yet. I always feel like winter is a better time for crochet and knitting, and my stitching always suffers a bit during the colder months. I did try a new craft though, English Paper Piecing, and I really enjoy it!
And of course, I participated in the Fantastic Bake Along, for which I chose the recipe! A quiche lorraine! Yum 🙂
So not many makes this month, but hopefully I’ll get a few more things finished before we move away and I have to pack all my craft gear (yes, when you’re at the point that it takes half the couch, I’m calling it gear!)
I hope you guys have had a great July and that you’re ready for August!
Happy Wednesday readers!
A couple of weeks ago, a saw a really cool post on Kais (Empress Fibres) blog: a tutorial to English paper piecing! I have always been intrigued by this and the tutorial was so well done that I decided to jump right into it! I first wanted to use scallops shapes but I realised that I was way over my head with the curves 😅 Maybe when I get a bit more practice!
So I ended up going for a jewel shape, I really like it and it’s only straight lines, so manageable for a total beginner!
I decided to print out my own shapes, I printed them on carboardy paper, and they’ve been holding their shape quite well! I used a free template I found on Google with a bunch of shapes, so I’m prepared for the years to come!
I just really enjoy it, it’s super relaxing and there are so many possibilities! This is what I’ve got so far.
Do you see the hearts?
I wish you guys a great end of the week! ❤️
