I have not been posting. I have not been sewing. My cushion covers have not killed my mojo - thanks Elizabeth and Claudine for the warnings, but I cannot sew anything else whilst they are still looking at me.
Instead I have done some knitting. Here is my younger daughter in the jumper I just finished for her brother. She is 5 years older and 8 sizes bigger than her brother. My swatch lied. Please admire my daughter's dedication in modelling for me. She is wearing jeans and a jumper in high summer, just like a real model has to. I said if she would do this for me I would give her the jumper instead of putting it away for 5 years in the hope that her brother would grow into it.
She was conned by this, but then would not smile until I told her corny jokes. "Real models don't smile mum, don't you know that!!!!"
Here is my next knitting project. I am really excited by this one, the yarn is so luxurious and the pattern so arty. I am making the origami jacket from Jo Sharp Knit 7.
There are some really boring sewing projects on the horizon. I need to make a school shirt and a school tie from this primary school dress. The hideously expensive school uniform shop does not have any shirts in my son's size at the moment, and I am not inclined to pay $15 for a school tie.
However, the overwhelming reason for not sewing is this.
