Would you like to see my knickers?
Okay... before regular readers turn away in disgust and any new readers think they have stumbled upon a most inappropriate blog... let me explain. On Friday I mentioned that Gill and I did a bit of unecessary shopping at The Creative Sanctuary (such an enticing shop). We were both seduced by the frills, bows and fabulous fabrics in these knicker making kits.
And so I ended up spending yesterday afternoon making up my kit and this is the result! I did struggle a bit with the instructions and ended up doing my own thing but they seem to have turned out okay... although the liklihood of me actually wearing them seems pretty slim (at least you are spared views of my bum!)
In the unlikely event of them being worn, I decided I wouldn't want the label inside (far too scratchy) so have stitched it outside for all to see... except of course no-one is likely to see them!
Now I really must stop procrastinating with frivolous projects because there is work to be done this week. But first... I just want to cast on with the yarn that I bought on Friday....
On a completey different note, I would like to send you over to visit my friend Catherina's blog. I have known Catherina for quite a few years now and we started our degree together. We share a love of textiles and often meet for coffee or lunch, and sometimes an exhibition. It is Catherina who has now got my piece of work for our weather project... and I have hers (more about that another time!). Catherina has been thinking about writing a blog for quite some time but then suddenly last year she experienced every parents worse nightmare. Her beautiful and talented daughter Kiama died from a sudden illness and understandably all sorts of plans came to a stop. But Catherina is one of the strongest and most inspirational people I know and now that blog has become a reality. I could tell you much more... but I will leave that to Catherina. Please pay her a visit and say hello because she is my friend and she is lovely!
