Hi kitty cats, so here we are in 2016! I have spent the last two weeks eating my body weight in chocolate and also planning a slightly new direction for While Darcey Sleeps. You will know that the last few weeks have been tricky health wise and its clear that lots of sewing will not be possible for me 😦 but I will be expanding my artwork to include prints and cards, and I will be opening a shop online! this also means that I will be able to so some crafting for me! Yay! so come have a look whats on my project list.
First, I got out my Louisa Harding Alice in Wonderland book and decided to make this hat………
A super hat requires some gorgeous gloves and this months Mollie Makes has a cracker of a pattern……….
I changed the colour (I’m trying to be less pink obsessed!) and I’m so pleased with how easy the pattern is, knitted straight with minimal colour changes I should have these done before summer!
Finally, as i had no time for making christmas decorations for me last year, I’m getting ahead of the game and making this super cute tree topper from Mollie Makes…..
That little lot will keep me busy for a bit! I hope next week I will be able to share with you my new business card design and an online shop! the only fly in the ointment may be me starting some heavy duty medication tomorrow, but I will be here even if its just a picture of me looking nauseous!
Good morning dear reader, I am afraid that this week has been a bit of a washout for me, I have pleurisy! This is making the simple act of breathing demanding enough. So this weeks post is a bit sucky.. It has crap photos taken on my lap and a picture of antibiotics……..
Apart from taking those bad boys I have been painting the lovely Isis……
I have been slowly making festive tattoo hearts………
I have made a start on this lovely blanket that my mum and dad got me for my birthday……
it cam from the marvellously named spitspotloves.com, they have all manner of vaguely Cath Kinston inspired goodies.
And when the wool arrives I’m going to make a few of these Liebkuchen from Mollie Makes, Liebkuchen are spiced biscuits from Germany and as my husband is half German I love to make things that refer to his heritage.
Finally, when the coughing has got too much, I have just gazed upon the loveliness that is the Laduree key ring that Neil got me for my birthday……..
Can you see it has a poodle on it? Milo is very impressed! there are all sorts of prettiness at laduree.com.
Lets all keep everything crossed and by next week I should be better and more blog capable!
