Hello, did you have a good weekend? Ours varied from highs to lows then highs again. Our kitchen (which some of you will have already read about in previous posts) is almost done and now I can stop moaning and groaning about the lack of cooking equipment and space in the house. We actually managed to sit down at our resurrected dining room table and have a meal together last night for the first time in weeks. Bliss! It's also fabulous knowing where all the food/herbs/spices/tins etc are, instead of searching high and low for that one essential ingredient I stuffed in the under stair cupboard!
So, one of the highs was me playing with thread and using some of my cotton I purchased from Planet Penny's Cotton Club. Thomas who turned four today needed a little pillow slip happiness...I remembered that green is his favourite colour so, green it was, pulled out from the rainbow of cottons.
This cotton is mighty fine stuff, I couldn't wait to crochet with it.
I crocheted a shell border like I did here, but this time used my new cotton which was so smooth and silky to crochet with. A real dream to hook along with, so much so that I hardly couldn't believe how quick the border took, I barely noticed.
I then used some of my new cotton to embroider these stars.
The cotton is a little thicker than normal embroidery cotton and next time I might split the fibres into two for a thinner thread, but the quality remains great.
By now I am sure you will have guessed what the pillow slip looks like...
I had great fun making this for the loveliest little chap, may he have beautiful sleep and the sweetest dreams.
I have another similar little project to make for Saturday, so better get cracking. Thanks for stopping by and
see you all soon xox
