and puppy-dog tails.A recent influx of boy babies (like 2) gave me an excuse to work on the buckets a bit more. Even though I love the buckets over in the side bar - I have always wanted to have a go at some that are more ...well...buckety, if you know what I mean.
So after a few wonky starts. I ended up with these.
This shape is definitely my new favourite for containers. The bottom has a fabric covered templastic circle sewn to it so they stand quite well and the wool blend fabric has enough texture to forgive the wonky hand sewing of the base.
The only thing I am not sold on , is the handles (artfully fashioned from some wire coat hangers).
Oh and I realise the slug kinda looks like an alien.
I still want them to be wire, so I don't want to cover them, I just want nicer wire-maybe black??? Any suggestions ?
In non buckety news
- I have a sore foot and it is all strapped up so I have learnt to accelerate my sewing machine with my other foot.
- Miss Jemma just scored the LEAD role in the school production (but you know, like it's no big deal mum , you don't have to go telling the whole world.) It is The Wiz, a jazzed up version of The Wizard of Oz. (I so want to make her a Dorothy frock...)
- I have joined Lucy Lockets Mini quilt swap and will be swapping with the very talented Monda loves.
and I thought knitting with wool was hard................can you imagine knitting with televisions?
