This is another hijacked YOP post, where there’s more “other news” than crafting news, but I do have a couple of FOs.
On Tuesday I got started on some fairies. I had 3 bodies from last year and made 12 more ready for “dressing”.
The fisherman’s rib cowl (Fisker Cowl) is the only thing I have been knitting this week. I didn’t have enough yarn for it to go twice around my neck so I knitted it at right angles together. Sorry for the late Saturday artificial light photo.
I made a fruit bowl! It has a separate post with more details and photos, but here’s a quick view of it. I was like Arnie when I left the lesson saying “I’ll be back”. Maybe next time do a whole day and make a wooden vase or maybe something with a lid!
I haven’t been sleeping very well and have been exhausted (and grumpy) this week. I haven’t been walking as much and that doesn’t help. It’s strange how we know what we need to do to make things better but are too tired to do them. Catch 22!
A while ago I bought some new kitchen containers and this week I dug them out to fill. Previously all my pasta, rice and baking goods were in a mishmash of plastic or glass containers. Different shapes and different lids just made everything look messy and wasted space. My new containers are brilliant, they all have the same lid! They don’t waste space but fit next to or on top of each other! I love them so much I bought a second set and a cereal set too! They’ll arrive on Monday.
Can I just take a moment to acknowledge how many types of sugar I own! I ran out of the small sized boxes so icing sugar and caster sugar aren’t there, but zoom in and you’ll notice 4 other types. Add to these 6 the treacle, golden syrup and two types of agave syrup!!! That’s a lot of sugar.
Truth be told 99% of the baking I do is biscuits (cookies) and cake.
When the second set arrives they’ll mostly be filled with lentils, quinoa and healthy things. Honest 😉 Will the fruit bowl be filled with fruit or chocolates? I’m thinking Terry’s chocolate orange, chocolate covered banana chips, chocolate covered raisins…then it’s a chocolate fruit bowl 😂🤣
Quick kitchen update, the worktop is on, electrics are done, just the sink plumbing and installing tap and the hob (stove top) and a few minor tweaks and it will be finished. The boiler has gone psychotic so that will need sorting too.
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 11th year, but this is my 4th year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry. Year 11 list.
