a long-sleeved renfrew that somehow escaped from the sewing table last january and was found lounging amongst the ufo’s
D’you see what’s gone majorly wrong here?
Don’t remember doing this, so it musta happened in the almost-year it’s been “resting,” right??
Seems somehow the neck band didn’t quite get cut out properly…
Uh-oh-h-h . . .
ickle trees in an ickly sled
Time for a rummage in the scrap drawer. Or maybe a substitution.
More anon. 😉
getting lots of wear with several different scarves (this one’s from vogue chicago fabric at least 8 years ago!)
Thought I’d better extend best wishes now, as its been a bit crazy round here for the last month or more. And will probably continue…
But there’s also been odd moments of sewing and crochet going on at some very odd times.
right is latest tee (above) which is getting lots of wear; left is possible hemlock (grainline freeby pattern)
And even have some photos to share!
Best wishes to all you Lovely Readers ~ may all your gifts be inspired and plentiful.
May all health, happiness, joy, and peace be yours now and in the coming year.
(And all your holiday sewing be completed magically!)
just finished renfrew short-sleeved v-neck (after altering the neck so seams match)
no idea what or if to use the top green fabric – its pilling already & has only been washed once

Hope this Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. is a happy time for friends and families to gather quietly and enjoy each other’s company. And maybe a little turkey, too. 😉
colour from 2015
The Time Change came over this side the pond last weekend, ushering in a week of rain, fog, and general gloom. Nights didn’t draw in, they slammed shut.
However, this weekend promises to be sunny, if distinctly cooler, which will hopefully encourage more Autumn colour. Now if they can just manage to keep 80’s outta the forecast. . .
After goofing off for a week, I’ve been trying Karen Ball’s suggestions (Did You Make That?), with further encouragement from Jen’s post (Let the Sewing Begin).
All of which means my two started & abandoned tops (UnFinished Objects, a.k.a. UFOs) from last winter might get finished.

The Renfrew is short sleeved, so might not get worn much. On the other hand, if this winter is anything like last winter, it will.
Am curious how the McCall’s 6992 in dark green will turn out. I used light weight knit, but Suggested Fabrics list sweatshirt fleece and double knit.
What was I thinking???
Toile. That’s what it was.
Just don’t tell the fabric police. 😉

No matter how you do, or don’t, spent your October 31st…
May you enjoy it!
I watch my favourite Hallowe’en DVD, Christie’s Hallowe’en Party…
And bake ~ this year it’s a new raisin scone recipe.
