Productive Weekend

It’s not quite finished but now the sleeves are attached the hooded jacket looks a lot closer to finished.

It just needs a button and some top stitching down the front and it is finished

Yesterday I made another cat-eating fish, cat cave from some hand-dyed Corriedale.

Feeling inspired by this pine cone:

I made a bowl:

And I finally finished these 2 scarves, originally I put a rolled hem on these but did not like the finish so removed the hems, reshaped the scarves and felted the edges to stop them from fraying.

The silk is still very shiny, the photos really don’t do it justice at all.

  1. Wow, you've been a busy girl 🙂 The jacket is gorgeous, I love the fish eating cat cave and the scarves are beautiful too. The pine cone bowl is very cool – pine cones are very inspiring for sure!

  3. I'd be chuffed to nuts to have achieved all that in a weekend! The pine cone bowl is very creative and the fish eating cat cave is a hoot. The scarves are very pretty and it's a shame that photographing textiles is such a mare – it's frustrating when you can't show on your blog what your eye can plainly see on the table – but take heart as we all experience it.
