january quilt


I made a small quilt yesterday. I did mean for it to be bigger but I didn't have as much fabric as I thought stupidly. Anways it's big enough to cover me legs whilst supping tea and watching the box.
I made it really warm, with brushed cotton which is actually curtain lining fabric (?) so cheap but so soft and nice. It has a layer of fleece in the middle too so it's quite thick. I used some navy corduroy and some other bits of left over fabric.

I recently found the remote control for our camera and thought it would be nice to get some photos of us on our new sofa, but it didn't really go to plan ; )

I also made another bobble scarf the other day, I felt so down with this winter funk going on, so I just knitted myself happy.

our tot got hold of the remote and enjoyed taking some self portraits!

 She's getting so big now!

very quiet days.


I was on a 'making and doing' roll, but I suddenly came down with the lurgy. I had to cancel my work trip to London, and me and the tot were at home, ill and watching Toy Story over and over. I actually started to think about some very deep physiological messages in those films...about imagination and freedom to have ideas and not be stuck within the bounds of rules. All the characters are different and have different skills and abilities which together enable them to defy all odds stacked against them. Deep, so so deep. ...I have watched too much telly.

Anyways, besides that I have mainly been looking at daffodils.

And admiring our oars that my mister put up as a stair rail.

and our new sofa that we bought from Tesco (it's even made in the UK would you believe). Now we have a sofa each for maximum horizontal relaxation ; )

...and my ├╝ber 70s door mat, I have so many memories of macrame rugs and lampshades when I was a nipper. It's my favourite decade by far!
