New Years Eve for this Grandma

Nothing exciting happening here tonight.  The grandson and his friend are indulging in an X Box game bought this afternoon with one of his Christmas gift vouchers (while I was doing the grocery shopping of course). I have chopped everything for a chicken and red cabbage stir fry with ginger and lemon but they don’t think they’ll want to eat until 9pm as they are full with spring rolls. I just hope I’m creating happy memories!!!

So….I finished a top , as you do. This one is made with a cotton broderie anglais fabric I bought in Singapore last year. The “pattern” was taken form a disused stretch T-shirt but extensively modified as I cut it out.  I wanted in particular to use the scalloped edge of the fabric to avoid having to hem the finished top! I also made a brooch to finish the neckline using some black felt, the purple fabric of the top, a shiny thread, and some silk I’d dyed with rhubarb leaves.

I’m gradually reducing the fabric stash to accommodate yarn!
