These things make me happy.
Crocheting with new friends and old at the World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP) in Darling Harbour on Saturday.
Shopping in IKEA is never fun, especially as I get crowd rage. But we picked up these Ribba frames on Sunday and I've just spent the morning popping in the prints I've been collecting all year. I love these prints - the two on the left are by Claire Robertson, the owl is by Jackie Amos, the hedgehogs by Maho Satoh-Britt and the houses by Lara Cameron. Putting them up on my sewing room wall has inspired me even further to paint the room blue. Maybe on a warm winter day sometime soon, that's what I'll do.
After the post on Friday night about the pouch I made, I thought I would dig out another pouch I made a few years ago which used to hold my pegs. When our quilting group was just the two of us, my friend Cathy and I would make these bags. I called them humbugs, she called them "Sunnyboy bags" after the ice block. I think Sunnyboy is a better name for them, don't you? We had a lot of fun with the quilting and using different fabrics - I was obviously in my yukata fabric phase (nothing much has changed, to be honest. I'm still in a yukata fabric phase. Long may it reign).
And finally, owl fabric. Because fabric like this always makes me smile.
