It's been a very productive week for me! :D
Firstly, I missed the derby trip to McDonalds after training (stupid shifts....), so I lost out to getting my very own minion from Despicable Me 2, sad Moogle :( So I decided to make my own!
Which did me until the lovely Tiny Tearaway surprised me with two of my very own from another McDonalds that hadn't sold out :D
We have a few crafty/fundraising things coming up with both Fierce Valley Roller Girls and the Cubs, so I've been trying to think of things I can make to contribute. I came up with this:
I hope it looks like a skate! I'm thinking I can make it into a fridge magnet or possibly keyring. It might be too big for a necklace. We'll see.
I've also been catching up on the Summer Stitching Club.
I'm quite happy with how this one came out. I've done a little better on this one compared to the sunglasses from the last Monday Makes. The stitches are closer and I've managed a circle!
The swimsuit was a little trickier, but I'm happy with this one too :)
The sunhat....was probably the most difficult for me. I don't think I traced the image well enough onto the linen and for some reason, I completely messed up my french knots for the eyes. I just lost it :(
And here is the progress so far which I posted up on Wild Olive's Flickr group.
I'm hoping to get the blue fabric tomorrow to finish off the hexies (I finally decided on a pattern!). Then I can start joining them together.
