First up, the front of the cardigan is done and my aim this week is to knit up the 2 back sleeve panels.
After receiving the photo of the children in Uganda I just had to start another batch and picked up a couple more pillowcases from Wilko. I've cut and ironed the first 6 and hopefully I'll be able to get these sewn up this week as well.
I've also decided to have a go a making baby taggies. No self respecting baby seems to be without one these days. My two didn't carry anything around with them, but my nephew had a special blankie and the label was definitely his favourite part. All you do is very very securely sew pieces of looped ribbon around the edges in between 2 pieces of material. They're supposed to be good for sensory skills and as a comforter. I'm hoping to get 3 done this week.
And I've also got my hexy project on the go. The next colours I'm using are blue scrappy bits from the pencil cases, then possibly lemon.
It's really interesting arranging the flowers into patterns and trying to decide what to do next. I think I've decided on the pattern below as my centre piece.... I think!
In between all these crafty projects I'm back to see the nurse for my lifestyle check on Monday, Thomas has his hospital appointment for his leg on Tuesday and Amy has an appointment for her hearing test on Thursday. At some point I want to fit in another Middleton visit with Mum, quite enjoy our trips and coffee chats and of course the usual things like shopping need to be done.
So, a busy but 'nice busy' week ahead of me. Quite looking forward to it.
