I'm just doing the last few rows on a Rainbow Dress which has a garden themed embalishment planned, but there is no way I'm going to finish it today, teach me for not starting it till Friday night LOL

everything is looking wonderful - what a talented group we have here! :D


beanie done - will be interesting to see how it fits/looks once on! (it's not as short/wide as the picture makes it look though - must have taken it at a funny angle) :wink:

Couple more bits from me...

Some oatmeal wool that I dyed hoping to get a semi-solid type effect, it is destined to become a size medium Bloom dress

Oh joy, those are the worst phone photos ever! Once we have replaced our camera memory card I'll show off some better pics cos I'm particularly pleased with the reverse applique on the hoodie.
