Being a bit of a wally, I left the picture on my Picasa album, so some people saw it too soon. It is of course a hat. DH spotted it when he went to a Malaysian exhibition in London last week, and added it to my birthday present pile. Julie recognised it instantly, as her brother had brought her one from the Phillipines. I can't see me actually wearing it, but it will look goo hung up on the wall somewhere.
I seem to have done a lot of sewing recently, but nothing much finished to show. I have finished the bag for Linda's Bag and Bucket Swap, but obviously I can't show you that yet. I've also finished a bag for my sister-in-law's birthday, quite a different pattern, so I can show you a picture.
Don't you love the stripped pine door and the old lock and handle? We have doors like this throughout our house.
The other sewing I'm doing is getting caught up on all the odds and ends - BOMs, finishing off a couple of mini quilts etc - so that I can start something new. I've got lots of patterns I want to try, but don't have the mentality to start something new until I've finished everything else. No UFOs for me I fear. This week I'm also going to get stuff ready for hand stitching during the Olympics. I think the time difference will mean that I'm watching repeats, but I'm sure the BBC will have a daily programme that I can watch.
Chookyblue is organising a Christmas swap, so if you fancy joining in hurry and sign up as I imagine it will fill up fast. I haven't put the logo in the side bar (nor the Bag and Bucket swap logo) as I can't seem to work out how to do it. I managed it with the Stitchers' Angel and Noah's Ark pictures, but seem to have had a senior moment and forgotten how I did it! I've got a Mac, which doesn't work in quite the same way I think. If anyone can help out I'd be eternally grateful.
