safely out the other side

27 Dec

There was far too much far-too-late-night sewing, in part because I realised at a very late hour that I’d quite overlooked one young couple! I was able to pull together a little parcel of mixed homewares for them but felt there needed to be something more personal; so I made another Simple Linen Apron. No photos exist. You’ll have to take my word for it.

Long scarves are notoriously difficult to photograph, particularly so late at night. I think you can see the stripes quite well and the colour is probably fairly accurate.

As to the rest? The ends were sewn in on the Tarrantino scarf and I wasn’t even doing it while we were travelling. That’s pat-on-the-back territory, that is. The other two aprons were finished and the one with the accompanying lavender bag had it slipped into a pocket. That was mostly before midnight, I think. Sleep? Well, there wasn’t quite enough of that but I wasn’t driving to any of our engagements, so I could have zizzed in the back seat and I doubt if either of the Bs would have noticed. As it was, I started knitting a pair of fingerless mitts. Hours of travelling time is such a productive thing!

Wider stripes and dark ties for this second Simple Linen Apron

Wider stripes and dark ties for this second Simple Linen Apron. The first one had white ties, like the lavender bag in this picture.

I hope you managed to get all your crafting and handiwork finished and celebrate in fine style, as indeed we did on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, both times with family and friends. Youngest Aunt had requested some slightly cooler weather, please, for the Boxing Day feast and the weather gods had been most obliging about that. We had a lovely time out under her pergola, eating baked snapper with the radio tuned to the Boxing Day Test in the background. I hope you had a lovely time, too.
