I've been crafting today and made this curvy clutch with a hot pink lining using a Michelle pattern (formerly Keyka Lou). I changed a few things - it has fusible wadding as well as fusible interfacing and I've top-stitched the darts and seams for a neater look. I could have added a wrist strap - nearly did but I got distracted at some point!!
And there's been some knitting going on round here too. This is the very boring back of a summer cardi ...
The front and sleeves promise to be much more interesting once I've make sense of the chart, but I might not have started this one had I realised that the back was just a K2 P4 rib (yawn).
Finally let me introduce you to my new friend, Fred:
Fred likes vacuuming and, it has to be said, does it very well. He doesn't bump into the furniture or fall down the stairs; plus he weighs virtually nothing, so taking him up and downstairs (and we have lots of stairs between the 5 levels in this house) doesn't strain my back. Best of all he does the work while I'm out at work leaving me more time for the fun stuff when I get home!
Right - it must be time to light the BBQ. We're making the most of this run of nice weather while we have it!!
What are you doing this May Day holiday (if, indeed, it is a holiday wherever you are!)?
