Soon after we moved here nine years ago, we bought a couple of rolls of woollen blanket from Creswick Woollen Mills and Bren's Nana and Mum came up and we had a curtain-a-thon. Woollen blanket is non flammable and we live in a high risk bush fire area.
Last week I was complaining about how non creative my wardrobe is, so this week I made a skirt out of some leftovers of that woollen blanket.
No pattern. I cut around another skirt, put a zip in the side and when it was a bit falley downy, I added two darts in the back.
And then I stitched on the lace trim I crocheted.
I am loving the wool and crocheted cotton combination at the moment and have a gazillion ideas running through my mind about where to take it next.
I am wearing and loving my Leonie/Michelle wrap even though it is still about four rows too short and I haven't darned the ends in. Who knows when I'll ever get to the wool shop in Ballarat again.
Bren likes the lining side of the skirt. Its a vintage sheet. I'll have to do something about the zip this way though. There must be such thing as a reversible zip out there somewhere.
Its been a crazy, intense week of looking after a sick two year old who wouldn't let me out of her sight. But its been cold and wintery outside and its been kind of nice to be stuck inside cuddling and crocheting on the couch.
Happy Thursday y'all.
Check out the rest at Kirsty's.
