The Week that Was

As school starts to wind down for the summer holidays my job seems to get more and more manic - I certainly earn that six week holiday! Being busy at work means I'm just coming home and collapsing in the evenings, and we seem to be busier on summer weekends than winter weekends!
All this means hardly any sewing! The few things I have managed have included some t-shirts and a baby quilt for customers,

and a rope bowl for me - inspired partly by the t-shirt yarn bowls we made at Chertsey museum, and partly by Svetlana's current obsession. I can see I'll need lots of practice, but I'm loving the organic shape.


  1. re: rope bowls.
    I am so happy you succumbed. Hopefully those bowls will get out of my noggin and I won't have to make a trip to Canby Builders for clothesline.

  2. enjoy your 6 weeks off plenty of time to make more bowls and stitch to your hearts content

  3. Wow! What a fabulous bowl! I still haven't started one, despite having a book / rope etc for some time now!

  4. Keep going! Not long now!! :-)
