CAL block # 2 and sewing plans

After a few tube journeys to work, here is block number 2 from 200 Crochet Blocks CAL…It has taken a bit longer than I expected since it is quite a dense pattern and I am used to holey designs, but I soon got into the rhythm and it was quite therapeutic not having to count past 2!

This week I have been working on a skirt that I hope will be a go-to staple when it gets chilly – a black stretch needle-cord Ginger – that I am imagining wearing with thick tights, boots and cardigans 🙂 As soon as I started making it, it suddenly got hot so I was lacking motivation, especially after 4 attempts to sew the zip in (one side inside out somehow!). I left work early for a dentist appointment so got home early and made some progress last night. Hopefully it wont take long to finish at the weekend, unless I make any other weird mistakes.

Other exciting news is that my copy of Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing is on its way to me! Bad news is I was at work when it got delivered so I’ll have to wait to arrange redelivery. Luckily I wont be sat around waiting for it to arrive as, after another long day visiting my new kiddies before they start school, I am going to meet Karen and lots of other lovely sewing bloggers at the V&A ballgown exhibition! I am super excited
