Sundee

This is my Sunday: knitting, reading, cozy cat on quilt, and hemming some pants. I may stay in my PJs all day.

Yesterday I sewed a bag for Liz (part of her giveaway prize) based on this bag sewn for me by Sarah. I am thinking of it as friendship bread, the sewing version.

The Juki machines are nice. I am enjoying my sewing again. I still have a lot to learn about them.

I started my Hogsmeade Cowl. I really wanted to make a linen stitch cowl but didn’t have enough for Jessica Jones. I realized I had the power. I knit a swatch in linen stitch. I did math. I cast on. This will be my Kenya knitting. I will knit until I’m almost out of yarn, and then I’ll bind off.

In the upper left of the photo above, you will see a book by The Alchemist. I am savoring it, especially the photos of the gorgeous vases and the intro to Raku at the beginning. I will learn more next week as I have an interview with the artist for The Just Craft. One day I will buy a vase. I have my eye on Jovian Moon. Although A Horse with No Name and Apollo’s Song have also taken my fancy. Housewarming gift for myself? I have to buy a house first. Priorities!

I received some very nice hand-me-down clothing from friends for my household, and the boys are taking their picks. I have also claimed three pair of trousers for myself. I think I prefer men’s trousers. They are loose and comfy and high waisted for people with no waist. That’s me! Maybe I’ll start tucking in my shirts again.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. My main goal today is to not think about work so I can be fresh for tomorrow’s challenges!

  1. Enjoy your day! The Colors in that cowl look wonderful already, I’ll enjoy seeing the cowl develop. I’ve heard amazing things about Juki machines, you are in good hands, or needles as the case may be!

  2. It sounds like a lovely way to spend a Sunday. I am very excited about my parcel, thank you so much. I love Raku pottery as well. I have 3 pieces, two by Jacqui Atkin http://www.jacquiatkin.com/ who is a friend of a friend I’ve had about 20 years and one by Rob Sutherland http://www.sutherlandceramics.co.uk/ I got from Allistar this last Christmas (that I’d picked and told him hehe). I love the metallic look on some. I’d love to have a go at doing raku firing. I’ve made some clay things in the past (including throwing on a wheel) as my landlady was (well still is) a potter.
