Well there hasn't been much crafting going on this week but there has been a lot of altering and mending.
First I had to mend this vest top of my daughter's. This is the base layer of her work clothes, she's a groom and works outside in all weathers.
Then I had to take up some jeans for her.
They were too short, so she decided that she wanted to be able to wear them as shorts.
Then I had to shorten the neck strap on an apron that I bought in a local charity shop, a bargain at £2.
Then the afore mentioned daughter asked me to make a red stock for her to wear when she does the cross country section of her one day events.
A stock is a type of cravat and one day events are, as it says in the name, a day of riding doing three different disciplines, dressage, show jumping and cross country. The new season is about to start, hence the new stock.
I did manage to cut out the pieces for my pincushion
but that is about as far as I have got.
I've also signed up for the String-A-Long organised by Emily at Mousy Brown to make a string shopping bag. I thought this would fit in nicely with expanding my crochet skills while at the same time fitting into my 20 minutes a day crafting.
The String-A-Long started today and I have managed to get about 8 rows done. So far, so good.
