And that includes me! I’ll be standing in a field/in a stream/on a mountain for the next seven days and I don’t think I’ll have internet access. I’ll try and post if I can, but no promises!
In the meantime, learn all about Shropshire here!
A slight bit of information for those not familiar with the Open University‘s way of working. The normal academic year (in England, anyway) runs from September to about July. However, the OU is from February to October. This has meant that I’ve done most of my work for my degree during the long, hot days of summer. However, it has been an advantage for crafting coming up to Christmas/my brother’s birthday/my birthday.
Whilst I’m gone, I’ll turn word verification back on. Since I turned it off, I’ve not had any really bad spam attacks, but I’d rather have some kind of protection in place when I’m not here watching it like a hawk!
As a parting “gift” I present you with a little sock bag I made for myself:
EDIT: The pieces I used were an 8 cm radius circle and a rectangle of 44 cm by 24 cm. I used a 1 cm seam allowance throughout. I also used some metal eyelets and nylon cord for the closure.
The black bits are two pieces of elastic I used to keep the double pointed needles together.
For bigger pictures, you know the drill (click, click!).
There are two more photos of the bag here.
Take care of yourselves, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do (send all
inappropriate jokes to …)
