I was given this unusual thread recently. As the ball had some of the thread used I decided a Face washer would be perfect. I had two goes at making it, first time I had too many chains and it was rather short and wide. So undoing about 7 chains and it worked out fine. I can see why this thread was given away, it twisted so much while crocheting, it was rather like crocheting a long shoe lace. Some home made cinnamon and clove soap and it makes a present to put away.
The sewing machine cover was taken off last week and some sewing was done. I recently purchased this Little Digger fabric from Patchwork on Avon in York earlier on this month.
I made Jacob a pencil roll for his Birthday. After making it I showed it too Lucy and she said he received one for Christmas. Oh well, you can never have too many of these sort of things.
It is Jacob's Birthday this week. We had a party in a park not far from his home. Ainsley did a fantastic job on his cake.
Our local library has a fantastic range of books, unlike a few years ago you battled to find or even order a decent book. This one caught my eye last week. The Invisible Girls is a true story.Thoroughly recommend this book. You begin to realise how lucky we are and it gives a great insight into being a refugee in a brand new country.
