Things Here Lately




Second attempts 


Third and final attempt - not perfect, but definitely not needing unpicking.



Another Bellbird top has been made, same fabric just a different colour.  I love wearing it, unfortunately  both versions  will  probably be put away till spring now, far to cold in winter in the library I work in, not to wear all the winter woollies.

A surplus of limes from other peoples gardens, and empty baking tins, seemed like a great opportunity to try out a new recipe.  Easy Coconut and Lime cake - I doubled it, and got a very large cake and a loaf size. Very yummy, kept well, stayed moist.

More great reads.  Tapestry was slightly reminiscent of the Outlander series, with time slipping back to Jacobite Scotland,  still a good read though, and it introduced me to a new author, who has written quite a few historical novels.

I finally got brave and tackled the spiral trellis stitch on Block 4 of my Solstice Dream hanging.  I have been putting this stitch off since January!!  After a few unsuccessful attempts, lots of stitches were harmed in the making of these, I have three that I am happy with.

Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead.

  2. Your Bellbird top is my kind of colour - it looks great! That stitch has turned out well - very effective. Thanks fr the thumbs up on another author; I'm waiting for my daughter to finish the latest Nicky Pellegrino book - hope that was a good read.

    1. The Nicky Pellegrino was an enjoyable read, not quite as good as her others I thought.Nice easy pattern to sew too.

    1. Thank you, I'm hoping once the heating is fixed at work, I can still wear it over merinos etc.

    1. Thanks Janie, on the whole it has been a slow month sewing/stitching wise. Life does interrupt craftiness sometimes.
