London yesterday was a treat! I met the lovely Nush again, and we headed up to Loop. I do apologise for the squeaking, jibbering and excessive yarn gropage, but oh. my. god. That place is GORGEOUS. We spent about an hour in there, talking about llamas and cats that look like Lenin. Nush and I work in very different ways – she buys yarn for a project, and actually finishes it. I buy yarn because it looks and feels nice, and I have little intention of ever actually using it. I just sit and stare at it from time to time.
ANYWAY. The loot.
All in all, an excellent trip!
I bought these a couple of weeks ago but forgot to blog about them. I think part of my lack of sewing confidence comes from my apparent inability to cut sodding straight lines. So I thought that with a rotary cutter and mat it’d be a cup of cake. but I’ve not touched my fabric stash since the coasters. Meh.
In the process of clearing out my room, some wooden hangers were unearthed. I think they would be perfect to pad and cover, but there’s a problem.
I can’t for the life of me figure out how to do it.
I don’t see how you sew the fabric around the hanger so as to have all the seams on the wrong side and it generally seems very faffy and not-doable. Help! You, dear blog readers (alright, there’s about four of you who read my blog but anyway) are a fountain of knowledge and internet links – someone please hook me up with a tutorial, instructions or anything that might help!
Ooh, I’ve also been baking but I shall leave that for another post.
