Today I did the gathering, I ignored what the pattern said and used my method using crochet cotton and zig-zag stitch. I took a photo of how I do this just to give you an idea; I find it's much more effective than the double line of gathering stitches I used to do.
|Using my pintuck foot the cord goes under the middle groove and I've put the ball of thread over my knee-lift to keep control of it.|
|Close up shot of how it looks as you're going. Results in more even gathering too.|
|I need to sew the edge of the lace down on the neckline, this is on Bonnie back to front though.|
We're thinking we'll also get an annual pass to Orana Park when their year rolls around in July, both boys love that sort of thing so they'll get full value and all these things come under the recreation heading that we applied under.
Still haven't heard anything about the garage so I've emailed EQC to find out how much longer until we're approved. George is desperate for his own room, we're getting pretty desperate too!
Not much more knitting done today, too busy on the chemise and cleaning. Spinning tomorrow, still trying to work out what to take along to spin! Hoping to finish the chemise tomorrow, and am about to do more knitting tonight.
