Lovely knit & crochet work Always' as always  Grin  I think Blake might need a pumpkin hat, I also have to make him a Yoda hat but I haven't found the right shade of green yet.

I've have been wanting a floor lamp for next to my chair and when I popped into the British Heart Foundation shop near the hospital I found the perfect one - well the perfect one to change  Grin

I finished the shade for it this morning and have started revamping the base. Here is the shade.


I don't know which part I love best the peace sign fabric or the pompom trim or the red/yellow/pink/orange fabric. I just know I love it and will love it even more when I have decorated the base  Cheesy

Your shawl is stunning Bushbaby!

Quantum beautiful beading and I never would have guessed you used pen nibs for end caps, very creative!

I've done a kind of temporary project for my living room. Temporary because when hubby comes home I know he will hate it and I will have to take it down but whilst I'm home alone I will enjoy it  Wink Cheesy

I'm not sure what to call it *lol* so I am going for "privacy panel" as it's a panel of fabric stuck to my window to give me some privacy. I'm not a lace/net curtain kind of gal but live on a bus route and don't like every Tom,Dick or Harry being able to see in the living room.

4  Tina Givens "Bloom" in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Kookaloo_Starr on: August 19, 2015 03:45:17 AM
This is my fourth time making this pattern. I love how effortless it is to wear as well as being pretty easy to make too and I love the fact it has pockets. The sizing is very generous and I used the Medium size.
I also made pantaloons to wear under it which make me grin when I see them  Cheesy

I made a facing for the neckline instead of turning the raw edge over and sewing it down.

5  Lekala #5915 in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Kookaloo_Starr on: August 19, 2015 03:33:46 AM
Stopping by to show off my latest make, a sleeveless jacket from Lekala Patterns.



I made it from a woven polyester that looks and feels sort of woolly tweed-like, it's a nice medium/heavy weight that works well for an extra layer on these not warm enough days of summer!

The princess seams made for easy colour-blocking to optimise my fabric usage (neither piece was quite big enough to be used alone) as well as being flattering to a more rounded body shape than straight seams are. BONUS!  Grin



I didn't have quite enough fabric to make the belt as long as it was supposed to be so it doesn't have much "wrap and dangle" but it's wearable and I felt pretty fabby when I went out in it yesterday  Grin



I learned the whys and hows of understitching, how to use my blind hem foot and made buttonholes that I am proud of. I'll be making at least one more in the near future.

Drive by posting yet again, I don't seem to get online much nowadays with one thing and another but I have been squeezing in some sewing between hospital visits.

Another Bloom dress worn with a garment I am calling SKIRTALOONS  Grin pantaloons that look like a skirt


and this sleeveless jacket that I ABSOLUTELY love  Cheesy Lekala pattern #5915

My friend Maz gave me the fabrics neither of which was quite big enough to make something Kookie sized so I made the most of the princess seams and made it colour blocked.
Successful buttonholes, understitching and thread belt carriers are some of the new tricks this ol' dog has been learning  Wink



and my *ahem* designer label  Wink


quilted pouch to keep manicure bits in, trying to grow my nails to a decent length after biting them all off earlier this summer Sad

I got a very early birthday present from my beloved Matt - a new sewing machine  Grin It does lettering and numbers so I've been making labels for stuff  Cheesy

and a bookmark

 
Also made a new dog bed, the outer cover was an Ikea sofa cushion cover that somehow found its way to me, I just made an inner cushion and stuffed it. It has the approval of Pigga (although she went to sleep in my chair after lying on the dog bed for a while *lol*


I had planned to have a day full of sewing but it turned into a day full of cleaning and organising. I have three bags to go to the charity shops, two bags to go to a friend and one bag to go in the bin!
I still have plenty left though Wink


Back again Smiley

I made a little sunhat for Blake it's from a book Sew Special Baby Gifts I found at the library

the lining is navy/white

This one for my friend Maz.

envelope backs with boring fabric Wink

Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers, it is very much appreciated x Today is day 14 of his being in ICU. He is awake and aware now but still is still on the ventilator and unable to communicate apart from nodding his head and rolling his eyes at me  Roll Eyes He has a long way to go still but I will be holding his hand every step of the way.
Between hand holding I have been crocheting, it's a productive way of dealing with the counting I do when I'm stressed.
