I spent the morning sorting out all these Harris Tweed scraps that I want to use to make some kind of patchwork… thing. I mentioned this a few weeks ago, as my next project after I finish my stitching of the cat canvas. I am technically at the end of the stitching but I keep extending it and I’m now trying to decide whether to extend it again or stop and finish it off.
Harris Tweed Scraps
I have two boxes full of various sized leftovers, so I thought I would sort them into separate colours and tweeds so I can better see what I have to work with and get a better idea of what I can do with it.
There’s a lot more than I thought! I’m thinking I will have enough to make a big throw which would be really cosy for the winter.
I pulled out sample pieces of the tweeds that I have most of and tried various combinations to see which ones looked good together. I’m not sure whether I want to plan the arrangement or just do it randomly and see what I get.
I’ve been trying to get some good clear photos of Miss Lily as I want to make a painting of her. Black cats can be tricky to capture good photos of sometimes but the light was good.
She obliged by posing for the camera.
I was particularly trying to capture a good look at her eyes. I’m probably going to use pastels so I wanted to get a good photo of the colours in her eyes.
When I was shopping last week, some of the shelves were quite bare again, and I was lucky to get the last box of the brand of decaf tea that I like! I think there are still supply chain problems due to all the usual reasons here.
That’s it for today, short and sweet, now I need to get back to sorting out the Tweed! Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients

This month I decided to join in with Effy Wild’s blog-along – 30 posts in 30 days same as we did in April this year. The idea is to blog every day if you can, but also to comment on other people’s blogs to keep the conversation going. There is a facebook group where you can link your posts and find other people’s to go visit and comment.
