Bundles of goodies

Guess what arrived in the mail last night?

That's right! Three wonderful collette patterns. I'm so lookin forward to starting on these. I've discovered all the second hand patterns I've been buying recently require some major drafting around the waist and I'm not quite at that stage yet so excited to have patterns in the right sizing.

Speaking of Collette patterns, I recently whipped up a Sorbet with sleeves after being inspired by Mena on SewWeekly. Was so easy and quick!

Am very much in love with my new machine.

Tea Picasso-style

Well, it has been a while!
A lot has happened I'll be updating this with lots of photos in the next few days.

I finally finished the Picasso teacosy.

Managed to snag a big enough tea pot in my work move/clean up.

First I knitted individual square and then had to felt each square. For this I put marbles inside each red square and then left then in whilst drying.
When sewing together I may have forgotten to leave a gap for the handle and spout but that was quickly resolved!
