We are over a week into February and I thought I’d share what I got up to during January, my selfish crafting month!
I made a pair of Ultimate Trousers, by Sew Over It. They were pretty straight forward to make and I’m rather pleased I finally tackled making some trousers.
I made an Emery Dress, by Christine Haynes. I love it and I’m planning on making many more!
I started a revamp of the cushions in my living room. My husband and I are rather bored of the ones that came with the sofa, so I’ve been told I can ‘go mad’ with making some new ones. First up is a crocheted cover, using Stylecraft Special DK, in these colours. I just need to decide how to join the squares and it will be done.
I made some custom Valentines Cards… Which I can’t share anywhere yet! I hope the customers will be happy with them on Sunday. Finally, I also revamped my website! I bought my domain name a couple of years ago, and my dad created a simple site that directed people to my Folksy shop. I’ve now given it an overhaul and added a few more pages and information (yes, all on my own! I’m rather pleased with myself!) There is more to come, but if you fancy a nosey, click here, or visit http://www.shirleyrainbow.co.uk ! Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions.
Here’s to a creative February!
