September Round Up

Hello friends and fellow crafters,
I have such a pile of stuff to fully finish and I was hoping to get some things done to show on here before the end of the month.
Well, that hasn’t happened so I’ll just post what I do have for now.
One thing I did get fully finished is this pillow I stitched earlier this year. It is one of the  WTNT Seasons of the Heart.
I didn’t want to use the paper tag idea shown on the pattern so I just charted the word spring instead.

I used Lady Dot chenille trim in the colour Rainy and I believe the backing fabric is Lynette Anderson

Still with With Thy Needle and Thread I made this project bag which was offered as a pre printed panel. The tiny strawberry zipper pull was a bit of a fiddle to make but I got there in the end.
The Queen of the Needle pillow is also WTNT and was finished earlier this year

I also made another project bag from a very old fabric line that I can no longer remember the name of.

I couldn’t decide which I liked better - front or back but I intend making another bag which will be pieced with the many scraps I have left so the front and back will be more or less the same next time.

As always, there must be a finished pair of socks. I used the Hermione’s Everyday sock pattern which is a free Ravelry download. Yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Signature  4ply and the contrast yarn was a hand dyed leftover from another project.

The socks are shown lying on my current crochet project  which is the Almost Autumn blanket
which is a free pattern by Made by Anita.

I’m using the yarns/colours called for in the pattern. I was getting on great with this blanket and am about three quarters of the way done with it. Then we got an unexpected heatwave and it was just too hot to work on it any more. I haven’t picked it up since it has cooled down to what is normal for this time of year.

I thought I’d show my little tiered display of smalls that were all stitched and finished many years ago. 

The last thing I have to show is this five year diary I bought on Amazon. I have had the Book of Days for the last couple of years but this diary has pretty much the same layout and was loads cheaper.

So that is about it for now. I hope everyone is well and enjoying your crafting.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. I didn’t think anyone would be reading but it’s lovely to see I’m not alone here and talking to myself.
