Firstly, I have so very nearly completed the cushion for my daughter's bed. Nearly a week in advance (most unlike me!). I blogged here that I had nearly completed it! I just have to add the buttons now.
I have my fingers crossed blue really is her favourite colour! I must now make a cushion pad to fit inside, my cover is typically not a standard size!
Earlier this year I started knitting a pair of socks. For a long time I had one sock, but now I have two!!! And they fit too. I don't do a lot of knitting but when I do my stitches are often too tight so things end up smaller than they should. But thankfully these fit nicely. Only issue is they are hand wash only! Eugh, I hate doing laundry let alone hand washing!
The wool is Opal Nightlife 5734. They took less than one ball of wool. I love the pattern, especially as it is just simple knitting and nothing fancy to get confused over when I haven't touched it for so long! So pleased with them.
And finally, the kids and I made a cake for hubbies birthday yesterday! This went down a treat! Can't beat a good chocolate cake on your birthday :)
Unfortunately, my Christmas quilt has been put on hold for a minute. I have some thread that I am experimenting with and some quilting patterns. But since we have another birthday next week there just doesn't seem to be enough time to do everything.
I am also linking up with Freshly Pieced and The Needle and Thread Network. Can't wait to see what others have been up to this week.
