Coburg Hand Knitters market

Had a lovely day out on Sunday catching up with friends at the yarn market, followed by lunch at Zaatar in Coburg.

So many gorgeous yarns!

But I already have 3 (or maybe 4!) knitting projects in the go ( and let's not count the sewing projects!!!) so I resisted the urge to buy any more wool. 

But I couldn't resist buying a jar of quince jam!

2019 Comic Con sewing part 2

One costume mostly done. Just needs some hand stitching on the front, possibly a clasp added.

 It is wearable now, but I hope to get the sleeves tidied up,and  a lining added. 

Looks more finished now I have the collar on! 

And here is a sneak preview of the finished crown!
