Out of the Frying Pan...



After reading Anabela's post about Wendy Mullin's "frying pan" ponchos, I ran right out, grabbed some wool and bias binding, and got stitching. (Kind of a big deal since I've only pulled out my sewing machine one other time this year.) I'm so so happy with how this came out. The top stitching is super wonky, which the perfectionist in me hates, but I love the overall piece so much I can forgive myself for the mistakes. And, bonus, it was the perfect thing to wear for tea in Keswick this afternoon with my two best girls....

Wow, that's amazing! I tried to find some wool today to make one but didn't quite find the perfect thing. Yours turned out perfectly! Thanks for letting me know xo

Keswick in Cumbria?
That's exciting, didn't realise you were English too.

Keswick in Virginia actually. Not nearly as exciting as Keswick in Cumbria I'm sure. : )

Way to go! I rarely get a project finished that quickly - it has to be super inspiring.

Ah, my excitement was short lived!
Still love your blog though..
