The finished Boteh Scarf was very well received by my soon-to-be-birthdaying sister.
Mid-laundry-hanging, I was spontaneously inspired to photograph these little dresses. It's best to photograph things before too many run-ins with kid and/or front-loader and these have each seen a few rounds already.
The denim dress detail was featured in my yo-yo post but the green (felted wool) one has thus far slipped through the photographic net.
The flowers are a combination of felted jumper (the blue), hand felted string and needle-felting and machine embroidery (the flower centres).
I finished a prototype of a wallet (on the request of my sister-in-law) but I wasn't 100% happy with it. I had to unpick and redo the binding twice before I bit the bullet and hand-stitched it.
Now I'm not happy with the finish and I don't think I have the time to develop the design into something machine-stitchable and pattern-writable. It needs a LOT of development.... but it'll do as an "OFMSIL" (Only For My Sister-In-Law.... yes, the category range of OF's is broadening...).
I was, however, VERY happy with Vilene S520 and S320 on the card pockets and dividers. Super smooth and fine, but nice and strong.
There was also a bit of pottery action in the garden (and it's an activity that will ONLY EVER be in the garden.... clay everywhere!).
And there was a fair bit of creative gardening going on.
I hope you had a lovely weekend.
