Tea, Tees and Sequins...
A wonderful morning over tea and embellishments was had with me and Michelle doing something we both love. Let me remind loyal readers, or those new or first time about Michelle. Many years ago (well, not that many - 5/6 years ago) I admired the most amazing knitted work of hers. She created the most beautiful beaded blankets... In fact, I was lucky enough to have been gifted one for the Nosh when he was born. Now, all nicely packaged up in his memory box.
Anyway, after tea and biscuits with her that morning, 5/6 years ago, she sent me off on my way with a ball of acrylic (black), two size 4mm needles and a Teach Yourself to Knit book by Zoe Mellor. From that day on, many fibres, frustrations and techniques later (I thank her for that initial inspiration) and we're sitting here together this morning, embellishing t-shirts for the fair. Thank you so much for your help. x So, with tees beaded, buttoned and sequined... we're ready to go!
Next up and ready to go, is this pretty summer halterneck dress. Age 6.
