on a roll ...
I have decided on the ribbon to use and have more or less got the brooch finished and I plan to post it on Monday - another big tick. Oooh I am liking all these ticks.
This afternoon I sat down and made my knitting needle roll. So now I should be able to find them more easily. I have been known to go and buy a duplicate pair of needles just to save me the agony of trying to find the correct pair but not any more.
The outer fabric is an Amy Butler fabric and the inner fabric is yellow with cream dots.
The top flaps over to stop the needles falling out of the roll and it all ties together with some ribbon. I also sandwiched some batting in the middle to help give it some structure and to stop it feeling too boney. So yay that's another big tick.
Another tick coming up .. I pre-ordered the Crafter's Companion book. It contains projects by fellow bloggers whom I admire and I can't wait for it to arrive. The website shows a sneaky peak of some of the projects just in case you need anymore coaxing.
Out of the blue my bulbs arrived, all 225 of them. I ordered them a couple of months ago now and had more or less forgotten about them.
There is a mix of narcissi and early and late flowering tulips. The majority are for the garden and going into pots. The rest of the bulbs are for some Christmas present ideas I have, but won't divulge here in case of prying eyes. So this weekend, if the rain stops, I think I will get planting. However, if it is too wet then I will use the time to go through the seed catalogue and fill out my order. Another set of potential ticks.
