A double-sided rucksack

I put the eyelets in the AC's new drawstring bag today. 

Custom made, to the requirements of a very demanding client, this one of a kind creation features the Union flag material on one side, and the green camo on the other, making it fully reversible!

Finished with brass eyelets and black cord, and full of martial arts gear, it looks (tho I says it as shouldn't!) spiffing!

Finished the scarf

Finished pictures of the scarf

From this.....

To this!

Draped over the line to show the oh-so-easy-pattern.

Lying on the woodpile to show the lovely brooches from Lupin.  My children at school loved them, and have decided I need a sunshine one to go with the raincloud, as I am more sunshine than rain! Or a rainbow one to match my socks. I might be looking at her shop later....... (ok, we all know the *might* is a fib!)

Lastly a slightly dodgy one of me.  By me.  Well, who else - there is no one else here lol!

I'm off to the doctors at the behest of my mother now.  We shall see what we shall see.

Laters people.

No1 finish for 2010

Ok, it's been a long time coming, but in the second week of January this was completed, and delivered to the bundle of joy for whom it was made.

And I likes it a lot, I does.


It's only a cot quilt, and it has a couple of wobbly bits, but I really enjoyed doing the pieced back and it looks lovely tucked over and around the child.

I've found recently though that I can't actually sew at the moment - my brain isn't up to it.   So I'm knitting, because I can pick it up and put it down with no effort.

Eventually, it will be a scarf.  Although I have unpicked it all since this photo was taken.  I thought I could live with the mistake in it, and I can't. *shrug*  I'm also making it half as wide again as the pattern says, because I want it for school as a wrap.

So that's what I'm up to lol! How about you?
