I managed to cut my pattern pieces out yesterday for The Dress, but didn't get around to cutting the fabric out. I did cut out the fabric for my wrap trousers though.This is the inside of the fabric, the other side is an emerald green. It's almost reversible. I used the pattern at the edge of the fabric to make a patterned hem. Hopefully I'll get around to sewing them this week.
I cast this on last night too. Do you 'cast' on a crochet project? It's the Tasseled Edge Wrap from the book Simple Stylish Crochet. It's an English book, so I'm having to double check all the stitches because I'm so used to US terminology now *lol* I had to frog it a couple of times but I think I've got the pattern licked now. It looks pretty in the book, I just hope it looks as pretty when it's done. This book has some lovely patterns in it, I particularly like some of the long lacy cardigans and wraps.
We took the Christmas tree and decorations down this morning. It's a sad day when that happens, everything looks so plain, although the plus side is that the rooms seems alot bigger again. I've also unearthed my stepper, so I may be able to shift a few pounds.
I also listed a couple of new painted glass vases in my eBay shop, including a gorgeous large sunflowered one.
I start my new job tomorrow. I spent a couple of hours this afternoon filling out all the paperwork. I'm kinda looking forward to it, as well as the terrified first days nerves that are starting to creep in. Hopefully as it's at the local college, it will lead onto bigger an better things.
