with a little dresden
There was the sudden urge for a little bit of dresden late this afternoon.
I let the chickens out for a forage, gathered some favourites from the sewing shed and whilst Abby described her preference for only drawing one eye – thus, the reason many of her characters either wear their fringe over one eye, wear an eyepatch, or have dots for eyes – I whisked 20 little 4.5 inch wedges through the sewing machine. Gave them a bash with the iron. Onto some vlisifix. Cut them out – this was truly the most time consuming part of the project. And onto my ancient old, worn til it’s soft and velvety denim skirt.
So incredibly satisfying I don’t think I even need dinner now! Instead I shall go back to my sock knitting. I’m desperate to get the stripey socks off the needles so that I can make a red pair – with folded over picot cuffs – to wear with my dresden-y skirt and tights.
Mmm … and then I’ll need some lovely shiny black Mary Janes.
… and a knitted vest – navy, with red bands.
… and maybe a knitted beret.
… must knit faster.
… and I should probably applique this wee plate into place with some thread or else I’ll be too scared to wash it!
