This year so far has been about a new job for me, juggling a toddler and working from home is a challenge but I like the work. As a family we have been for bike rides and to the beach already and I hope for many more trips.
I wanted to share with you my beautiful antique sewing box that my mum bought me for Christmas. I love it. We saw it together when we went to Vintage Forty Six which featured as one of my Little Gem's.
I couldn't wait for a free moment after Christmas to fill it with all my sewing bits and pieces and get rid of my homebase tool box!! Such elegant legs and curved edges.
A lovely piece of furniture for my craft room that keeps all my things organised. It also makes me more determined to give a little TLC to my antiques sewing machine box. It needs a new lining and new wheels, definitely nearer the top of my 2012 project list!
I also wanted to share a photo of the yarn I got in the post today, especially for my granny square a day in 2012 challenge. Brought to my attention by nomoredisco and started by Mollie Makes I decided it was a good way to keep focused and make the blanket I had been hoping to make this year. I am 6 days behind today, some crochet catch up needed this afternoon.
I am going to do 4 rounds per square and experiment with colours. I want a brighter blue and a green in there too but these white, yellow, blue, orange and navy yarns are to get started with. I bought these from Cucumber Patch for £1.75 a 50g ball, a great choice of colours on there. I will keep you updated on my progress. Let me know if you fancy joining in too!
