Happy Friday Number 15

Eek!  A whole week gone, it’s Happy Friday time again!

Every week I intend to fit in at least one other post and I just don’t know where the time goes… Anyway, here’s a little potted summary of Planet Penny goings on.

The lovely bag of yarn last week?  The Silk & Wool blogger (sorry I don’t know your name) was asking about my project and here’s a sneak peek…crochet for Happy FridayAbout a month ago I mentioned that I had been asked to contribute to a crochet website but was still waiting to hear more.  Well, it’s really real!  I’m going to one of three bloggers on the site, and this will be my first ‘make’.  I’ll let you know all the details as soon as it goes live, but it’s one of the things which has kept me busy this week.

Springtime Happy FridaySpring has really sprung here in Norfolk, and it’s been wonderful to have a few days when I can have the doors open in the studio and enjoy the fresh air.  Higgins likes it too, but always manages to get on the wrong side of a closed door and then summons me with an imperious ‘WUFF’!

And I’ve found my sewing mojo!  Being tall I always struggle to find something as long as I like off the peg, but this fabulous pattern from Merchant and Mills is perfect, and very adaptable.Merchant & Mills

My practice run recycled two tops from the back of the wardrobe which weren’t quite right for various reasons and were never worn.   Reinvented, I’m want to wear it all the time!Merchant & Mills pattern recycled linen Happy Friday And I rediscovered Croft Mill, a company from which I used to buy lots of fabric years ago when I was sewing for the children,  and bought some fabulous fabric…

Coates Fabrics for Happy FridaySo all in all, It’s a very Happy Friday for me…how about you?

Please join in with the Linky below, and tell us all about what has made you smile this week.  Don’t forget to link back to this post in your own so that people can find all the other links.  

I don’t want to add a grumpy note, but I’m still getting people joining in with irrelevant posts which don’t mention Happy Friday anywhere, and the whole point of this is to link up like minded people and find new blogs to follow, so please play fair…

But enough of all that, have a very Happy Friday and a lovely weekend x

    I really like how you’ve made a new garment from reinventing 2 older items. After watching the Great British Sewing Bee I’d like to give it a go but a bit worried I’m going to make a complete hash of things! I love the batik fabric – haven’t heard of the Croft Mill so off to have a browse now…

    Gosh the time is flying by, I’m really enjoying the sun we’ve been getting, I love the doors and windows open. The dress shirt looks so comfortable and it great to recycle fabrics.
    Have a great week

    I love the shirt you made Penny – I would love to make something like that but my sewing skills definitely need work first. Hope my linked post is OK – I don’t think I will have a happy Friday like that for a long time to come!!!! xxxx Kathryn
