Finish Along Q1 '1519:51
I've never linked up to a FAL (finish along) before, I guess I thought that then I'd have to actually do the things on my list!
Well this year I'm determined to get a couple of things done so I'm going to be brave. I figured that once I say it you'll hold me to it, right? Help me!!
1) Katwise sweater coat for Lizzie. (my sister and the Patterns to print minion)
I've been collecting wool jumpers and cardigans for about two years now. I bought the tutorial ages ago. September 2012 to be exact.
I've been holding out til I find a base jumper or cardigan the right size but I've decided that I can't wait forever and this year I just need to get on and do it!
The funniest jumper is this one below. It's shrunk so much it's stiff as a board! I doubt I'll be able to use this, I can't even bend it let alone cut it!
2) Make Elvis a new dressing gown from this old one of mine.
Dusband gets up at 7am, feeds Elvis and then starts work with her sitting in her bouncy chair next to his desk. I get up at 8am and we have breakfast together then get ready for the day. We don't generally get dressed until after breakfast and we had a Newborn sized dressing gown for Elvis which Dusband liked to put on her. I think mostly so they matched...which is cute, but odd. She's very tall though (considering she's laying down most of the time maybe I should say she's very long?) and her dressing gown is just ridiculously mini skirted now so I thought I could use some of the fabric from my old dressing gown to make her a new one!
So that's it. Two goals in 3 months, I can do that, right?
Of course I have many other things I'd like to do, but these two are the two I'm most keen on. I thought if I put down a long list of things I'd do other things that I preferred first and these still wouldn't get done!
I'm linking up to the finish along for the first time.
