WIP Wednesday

I actually have no WIP's to show you this week, instead I have some finishes to share!!

On Tuesday night my knitting group 'Needles & Natter' held a knitted bracelet workshop which I attended and I am so pleased I did! I'd never knitted with wire before and I was surprised at how easy it was. Here is how far I got with my bracelet by the end of the 2 hour workshop:

I attached one end of the clasp during the workshop so I'd know how to attach it when I finished knitting!

Looks messy but that is how its supposed to look, honest!
I am planning on writing up a tutorial for this if anyone would be interested in giving it a go themselves :)
 Wednesday was my day off so I decided to spend a morning with my sewing machine, I sewed up one of my cross stitch pieces from the finishing pile into a cushion:
Had a bit of trouble sewing this one, my machine was being decidedly temeramental today and then to top it all off I found that I didn't have enough toy stuffing to fill it with! Quick trip to Hobbycraft proved less than fruitful as they are still sold out so I had to resort to my local fabric shop which actually turned out to be cheaper :)
After the cushion saga I decided to finish off my bracelet from the workshop and I managed it! Didn't take to long and I can see myself making a few of these for presents

Did a little more work on Dandy Dreams this evening but then got caught up watching the Easter Special of Jonathon Creek so I think I actually only managed to finish a single letter!! Still it's a 'needles and natter' morning in a few hours and international hermit & stitch this weekend so I'm sure I'll get some 'needle time' in over the next few days :)
till next time, happy stitching!
