This week in the Sewing room

Another idea for my stall was found on Pinterest  and I am pleased to say that it has been executed.   

Three around the neck mobile phone holders have been ticked off the to do list as well.

While sitting at the machine this past week a book from Borrow Box has been keeping me company.   

The Dressmaker is one of my favourite films and when I saw that this was available to borrow it was downloaded straight away.    You would need to know the story of the Dressmaker before listening to this one as reference is constantly being made to previous incidents and characters.   

Two beanies were completed, sewn up and pom poms made.

Another is now on the needles.

A new book was started.  I have read quite a few of this author's books in the past and this one is certainly measuring up to be just as enjoyable.  

All this wet weather we have been having over the past few months prompted me to go and buy another clothes airer. 

I did not realise that it was so big - it looks like some piece of apparatus that would be found in a gym - however it is very sturdy and having the hanging rail above the airer certainly gives more drying space for shirts and tops.     The racks are quite well spaced out which allows for better air flow around the clothes.   

A quick project for myself.    A couple of hanging towels for the kitchen.   

The rain still continues to fall down here and hubs heard on the radio this morning that this pattern is going to continue until November........oh NO.   

That about wraps up this week.   Back soon and in the meantime 

Happy sewing all

I love those phone holders. They look perfect for when out walking the dogs and don't have pockets. That clothes airer looks heavy duty and fantastic.
I know it's a waste of electricity, but I just tend to use the dryer. I'm not looking forward to my electricity bill, that's for sure.

Are those little kitty zippered coin purses? Whatever they are, they look very cute.
You are so stinkin' productive! Look at all you have put together.
That drying rack (as we call them) looks like an excellent design. I've never seen one like it here. I don't think I have anywhere to put something that big, but I wish I did, because it is just what I need. :)

The kitty purses will be a good seller along with the phone pouches.
Cute beanie finishes …
I always enjoy listening to my borrow box books as I sew..that looks like a good one.

Youve done well with the sewing... fun to find a new success to join the other things. I have enjoyed both those books (I listened to them both).

Sun is out today so I will take advantage and get some washing done... I probably need one of those racks!

Wonderful week for you Karen, very productive. I hope the weather forecast is wrong and the rain does not continue for that long. We have had a beautiful sunny, but cool, week and today it is windy and raining!

More lovely projects. Are they little purses in the first pic? Enjoy the book. Hers are all a good light read. Your clothes airer looks like it will hold a lot. I have had so much trouble finding a new one. One had thick rails that I could not peg things onto and had little space between to slide my hand in to hang something. I ended up with another small airer but it is very flimsy and the top is not attached. They don't make many as sturdy as my old ones that lasted 25 years. Happy knitting and stitching.

You continue to make a great selection of small projects. It’s the sort of stitching, both fabric and wool, that my Mum always enjoyed doing. Our clothes airer is very similar, but without the high hanging rail. That’s a great idea. We don’t have a drier, so ours gets lots of use each winter.

Lots of great sewing again Karen, and I also like Fiona's books, will have to get some more. Have a parcel all done up ready to post to you when I head to the PO again.
