Afternoon tea and a knitting needle case.

It’s definitely turned this weekend.

A definite feeling of autumn. Winter jackets dug out of the cupboard. Pyjamas pulled down from the attic.

But an afternoon ‘bring your own cake’ tea with girlfriends and children who had known each other from babies put paid to the gloom.

Lots of cake!

Lots of cake!

And I made a knitting needle case!Knitting needle case

There is no longer a need to scrabble in a dark cupboard. No longer a need to buy a pair of needles or a crochet hook for every new project. Now organised, I know what I own and it appears I have several multiples of the same sized needles and hooks.

I used a piece of my liberty print fabric purchased during a memorable trip to London this past summer.

I’m just nipping across to handmadeharbour to see what everyone’s been up to this weekend.

Have a good week.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. Like the idea of the “bring a cake” party. Your needle case is great… Especially that it has pockets for knitting and crochet needles… Keeping them altogether… Great idea.

  9. I love your needle case! And that Liberty print is so pretty. I keep all of my needles in a vase on my crafty chest of drawers but a think a roll would be much nicer. Another thing to add to the to-do list!

  10. All the cakes look yummy. Is there any left?

    What a pretty needle case. It looks just like a scroll. I must get round to making a case for the needles I inherited from my mam xx

  11. Very smart. I really must have a go at making one of those. I have two needle cases, but they both mean I have to tip all the needles out every time I want to find a pair. Not very handy.
