Back in February, I offered to help out pattern designer, Laura Gesin, by test knitting her cowl pattern. I finished it last week and it has now been released on Ravelry. You can find mine hereย and it has a link to her “Flock of Seagulls Cowl”. It was a thoroughly enjoyable knit, in the round with a small cable row every 4th row. Isn’t the flock stitch pretty?

I also made and sent out a cross stitch project bag to a lady in California that I met through Instagram. See my new little Evertote tag? My SIL ordered them and we’ve been adding them into our new bags. It’s such a small thing, but the look of it on the bag adds a tremendous amount of professionalism – makes me feel very swank ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then I feel silly for feeling swanky………..

It’s March Break for the children this week and we’ve been up to all sorts of fun things. I’ll fill you in next week. I hope you are enjoying a bit of crafty time – there’s a lot of things to be made, we must make the most of our time. My stash doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller. How about yours?

    Hi Caroline, my email has shut down, will have to sort that out next week. Came back from Townsville today and the held bundle of mail did not include your letter, I will ask at the post office on Monday.
    Good to see your sewing venture is going along well and you are happy with your creations.

      Well, that is VERY annoying Margo – there’s no way it should’ve taken that long. I’ll have to start and send another one and I’ll watch my box incase it was returned for some reason to me. I’m sorry to hear about your email – I hope all else is well. I am loving the sewing!

            Hi Caroline, the Lost letter turned up yesterday, it was postmarked 27th March so has been lost somewhere for 37 days since you posted it on 18th February. …..yikes….. just as well it wasn’t someone’s ‘Sweetheart’ letter for an important question seemingly ignored and left unanswered !
            Will start a reply today ???
