A relaxing project

 At last a much delayed post on my (very) slow growing blog. I spend many happy hours reading other sewists' / knitters'/ crocheters' blogs and end up neglecting my own!
Anyway - my current relaxing project - good for when I am watching TV - is this shawlette -Vintage Freemont. It is a joy to knit and I purchased the yarn at the Olympia Knitting and Stitching show. Unfortunately I did not buy enough so had to search online and was lucky to find a supplier. So I will be able to complete the job. 
I apologise for the not so good photo but will post again the completed item.




It's growing - slowly :)


And this it what it should look like. Beautiful! Has anyone done any similar knitting or crochet projects? I would love to hear about them.

What am I?

Hello fellow sewists! I have been neglecting my blog lately :(  however I have some plans afoot for some hand sewing posts - not one of my favourite aspects of sewing but one that I am tentatively trying out. In the meantime - does anyone know what this is??



PS has anyone been watching the Great British Sewing Bee? I'm hooked and loving every minute!
