...by the hair on my chinny chin chin...

Phew, my shoulders are aching, my teeth have been clenched tight in frustration and my temper has flared... but that is over now. I've met my deadline of today to finish my hubby's vest for Xmas.
Like I said, phew!

In the post

Received this lovely bundle of fabric from Duckcloth the other day...
I can't resist a sale AND free postage!
The red spotty fabric is laminate - do you know of any good tutorials or ideas that I can use it with/for?  
I'd always wanted to try laminated fabric ... couldn't go past the dots!!

About to toss it in the bin...

 This is me, hanging my head in despair.... all my work with so little time remaining & I go and do it wrong, I stuff it up so close to the finish line.

I love mustard, do you?  I made some the other day .... it goes from lots of loose dry seeds that you soak overnight...

at night...

Each night I've been sitting on the couch crocheting these washcloths ...  
I can make one per night ...  now to stitch them up! They are a part of some Xmas gifts that I'm planning.  
Can anyone recommend a good Goats Milk soap that I can purchase to pop with them?

Pattern on Rav here...
