Large and lively

Well, I finished the Light and Lively and I do love it, but it's too big! Aargh! I tried it on as I was doing it and reduced it accordingly, frogged it once, missed out alot of the increases, and it still hangs off me! Ah well, I guess I'll save it for winter to wear over stuff, unless someone wants to make me an offer? *lol*

I was going to start my wrap trousers today, and then realised that I hadn't pre-washed the material. I've made that mistake before and what I've made has shrunk *doh!* I've washed it now and it's on the line drying. Yes, normal programming has stopped for a brief interlude of sunshine. Hopefully it'll last long enough to dry the washing.
I'm considering what project to tackle next. I've claimed Twiztidblood for a tissue box cover, which is great because I've been contemplating making one for me too , so this will help to get my arse into gear. I still need to finish Mini's paper beads so I can get that into the post. I'm painting a little at the moment.

The BF has an interview in Wiltshire next week. Good news/bad news, I dunno yet. I'm going down with him so we can look at the area and decide whether we want to take that step yet.

Congrats on the finish! Sorry it isn't the right size though. Maybe you could make it longer and have a loose nightie or something.

Yeah, I was considering making it into a longer dress for over trousers...:-)
