Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I have been away for some time due that I had a lot of projects to be done then squeezing in a short trip out of town. And all these within my limited time frame.
My husband and I were on a weekend vacation in the Wairarapa region. The idea is to visit a friend but he has a last minute call to the city so we just drove around Masterton and Carterton, stayed in Greytown overnight and had lunch in Martinborough on Sunday. In Martinborough there weren’t much shops open as we came in around 3 PM and like most weekends they close at 4- 4:30 PM.
But we’re able to go in some quaint shops that sell French-vintage accessories. Most of the home decor are too feminine for us, however in the end we bought a small antique looking frame. We’re going to put a picture of us as a reminder of that particular trip.
Now I’m back. It’s Labour day Monday here so no work. It would’ve been perfect if only the weather stayed clear for people to enjoy outdoors. This is the kind of weather that will induce flu so I’m going to stay indoors. And while I’m here, I’m going to work on my throw. It’s near to being finished so I will put more effort in it. I plan to finish this by Wednesday or let’s say- within the week if I have the time. Because it’s going to be another trip out of town.
Ergo a new schedule to load my works here in WordPress has been created. I will make sure that I upload my articles every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
I’ll tell you more of my throw project once I’m done, that is a promise. 🙂 But for today I will share with you a granny square scarf I made for my mother-in-law. I made this for her to wear over winter. It’s also going to be a Christmas present. Who knows she may find a boyfriend while wearing this.
I titled it ‘Romance in France’.
My color scheme is based only in 4 colors taken from vintage photographs. Their combination is a from a sepia tone with red tint: Cream, Light Pink, Dusk Pink and Light Brown yarns.
My yarn is John Q Creative 8ply and 100% NZ wool, washable.
I have two types of granny square here same as the bohemian bag I made. All in all it’s a total of 24 squares. I sewed them together to make the length and finished it with scallop border to give it a more feminine touch, and it would create an interesting detail when it peeks out from a coat.
The result turned out nicely, in my opinion. But I still have a long way to go with the joining process. Anyway, I may make another one in the future, for me.
I’m quite ready for Christmas gifting now. I hope my maman likes it.
And I hope you liked it too.
Have a nice day!
