It is almost like winter.

This weekends forecast is for cold wet weather.

It is going to be a good weekend to sit and do some sewing.

First, we have bought some new lounges for our lounge/dining room. I will be making some curtains to match it. This is the fabric I have chosen for it. The roses match our lounges perfectly.

Next, we are recovering the lounge chair cushions and moving one of the old lounges into the family/home school room. I measured up the covers today and made the pattern. This is the fabric I will be using for it:

Finally, if I get sick of sewing or want to have a break, I also have recently bought some cotton ease to make a wrap for Joseph. I am going to use this pattern.

This is the wool I have. It is a lighter colour than I thought it was on the website but it should look nice.

Hope you all have a good weekend and keep warm.

How did I not know that you were a knitter?! I love you even more now! :)

Can't wait to see the wrap!

I haven't knitted for a long time. I love sewing because things get finished so much faster. I decided to do some knitting because I can take it with me when we go out and another blogging friend inspired me.

I have joined ravelry so maybe I will have something on the needles regularly now.

Sounds like fun! I love home re arranging and freshening things up.
Have a great weekend.
God bless.

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
