On to other things


Ok.  so I have been very silent for the last year.   After the wedding dress, I took a few months off sewing and concentrated on crochet and other adventures.   I have been back sewing in earnest the last 6 months or so.   I will start catching up on the work I have done.

In November, we went to England for nearly 2 weeks.   I had some business to do and we took an extra week for vacation.    We visited many cool places.  Some days it was quite cold with the rain and ocean winds.  We spent most of the week in Dorset and the Jurassic Coast.  We stayed in Weymouth and toured from Bournemouth to Lyme Regis.    I made a hat on each flight.  Thankfully, I made Jim’s hat on the trip over because he was quite cold without hair!

For Christmas last year, I made many hats and mittens.

And I made this beautiful capelet for my oldest niece.   The picture doesn’t do it justice.  It is a design by Mari Lynn Patrick called Chanson En Crochet.  I found it on Interweave’s web site.

I continued sewing in earnest for summer.   I’ll catch you up on other projects in the coming days.
