Now- back to the blog 🙂
I have been getting back into my craft again over the last few weeks. I completed the multi-coloured version of Linda Davies’ “Oval doily in Ecru”, and like it so much I have begun a second one in a size 50 Altin Basak Fuschia colour. I began the first one as a challenge with a new shuttle gifted to me, I wanted to see how far I could get without refilling the shuttle. It turned out that I needed two full shuttle loads to complete this doily. I used Alenalea Size 20 thread in Jewel colour.
I was also lucky enough to have a short holiday in regional Victoria a couple of weeks ago with my family, staying for a few days at the beautiful town of Bendigo. We had a relaxing time, and I managed to also visit the Bendigo Wool Mills factory shop. This factory shop (known as the back room) had amazing offerings, including a lot of yarn which they don’t sell on the website (where I often purchase from). Below are a few pictures from our holiday, including the yarn I bought and our puppy.
So, that updates what I have been doing over the last few weeks. Until next time, happy crafting!
