It's smooth to cut — and very therapeutic — but this brand of rubber is a bit crumbly, so getting sharp edges and lines is not easy.
These are just doodles really, and I'm hoping they'll print up well on some linen and cottons. Then I fancy quilting them a bit and seeing what eventuates.
:: I have three crochet thingies on the go, but I'm about to start knitting another string bag for the String-a-Long 2010, dreamed up by Emily in Wales. The button on the right should take you to the flickr group, if I've managed it correctly! And on Emily's blog there's a list of free string-bag patterns to inspire.
I found some fab cotton in Spotto this morning, and bought enough for two.
I shall be knitting Elisa's Nest tote from Purl Bee — looking forward to it!
:: My three-year blogging anniversary falls next week. I've never done a bloggy give-away before (too scared of rejection — not enough readers — what if no-one wants anything? — bla bla bla), but this year I'm biting the bullet.
Because I'd like to give something nice to some of you lovely people who drop by here, regularly or otherwise, as my way of saying thanks.
So if you'd like to be in a draw for something from me (and you can hint as to what that might be, if you like), just leave me a comment between now and the end of Feb 22.
