My day

Ooh I have enjoyed myself today :)

My very own day off, spent with my little sewing machine.

Making pretty things.



A knitting bag, needle roll and little zippy pouch for my (nice) s-i-l who has recently rediscovered knitting. These are very late additions to her birthday present but I think she'll like them.



After all, this knitting habit needs encouraging and nurturing, right?!

Talking of knitting, this is my latest WIP.....



......like them?

Luck you getting some "you" time.
I've had a very boring day at work, so boring I almost nodded off.... no really.... lol
I'm having an enforced break for a few weeks, I'm going in to hospital
on Wednesday to have a hysterectomy
so I'll be resting for some time
(I hope ) I'm hoping I wont be too
under the weather to get some me time too.

Green horns! Just what all the cool girls are wearing this Autumn.

Gina said...

That bag is very pretty... and I recognise the fabric! Mine is still a tablecloth but I think I might like to make it into a bag now. Love the little green horns... we'll all want them you know.

I have to confess I though they were little green cat ears, but I've never seen a green cat so ... mind you, I've never seen a green devil either so what do I know?

Julie said...

Beautiful sewing, your nice s-i-l will love them all. Interesting hat ;-)

Devils horns warmers - Mrs Moog you are such a trend setter!

What a lovely bag, I like the green horns very much, are you going to knit a matching pointy beard and handlebar moustache, or do you think that is taking it too far :)

Just a thimbleful.....


What pretty material! When we were in New Orleans we met some youngsters who had had implants on their foreheads to give them horns - yes, really, I took a photograph! There might be a market for horn muffs there!

Lovely horns!

Great gifts for the (nice) s-i-l too- don't you think the other (not so nice...)s-i-l might change her mind about handmade/homemade soon...???

Jodie said...

You're dressing up as an alien for Halloween?

Michaela said...

Just stop it will you? All this showing off about knitting 2 things at the same time on 2 circulars. Too blooming talented woman!

The knitting bag is gorgeous. Beats my countless carrier bags by miles!

You are the queen of bags Mrs Moog. I use the last one you made me all the time.
