I used a yellow bias binding at the waist this time - see the left side of the photo below to see the colour - and, as I didn't have an ordinary brown zip in my stash, I used an invisible zip instead. I'm not fond of sewing invisible zips but I must admit to being chuffed at how well this one looks, well, invisible - apart from the zip pull, of course!
This morning, I was in Lidl and bought myself a wee bowl of hyacinths. I planted them as soon as I got home and, according to the instructions, in 10 days I'll be taking them out of the cupboard at the bottom of the stairs to display them. I wrote it in my diary in case I forget!!
This is the design on the wee pottery bowl. Not bad for only £2.49, eh?
This afternoon I decided to see how many hexagons I had in the box where I've been keeping them. I started these back in April last year. I haven't been working on them non-stop - nothing like it. I take the urge now and then and then I stop again.
I tipped them out ...
.... then arranged them in piles of 10.
100 made! I don't know how many more I'll do or how many more I think I'll need. I do still have a few still needing their black "rounds" crocheted on. I don't think a few more would go amiss!
Douglas kindly got me down a pile of old books which were on high shelves in the room I used to use as my sewing room. He now uses it as his train room with his huge train table taking up most of the space in that wee room. I couldn't reach the shelves so he got these down for me yesterday. I've not read these books in years so it'll be a bit like re-visiting old friends. I'm looking forward to reading every single one of them!
Fun times! :o)
