Well, that's another month gone. So much for my posting more often, but I'm guessing that nobody wants to see pictures of the door and window painting I've been busying myself with.
In between the rain that is - I'm not going to whinge on about the weather, BUT, if we have another wash-out of a summer like we did last year, then I'll be having very stern words with the Big Man upstairs. Probably from the local mental health hospital, which actually seems like quite an attractive alternative to last year's ' being trapped in the house with two crabby kids for 7 weeks summer holiday ' nightmare.
Anyhow there has been a little bit of crafting,
A little bunny for Molly's friend, although I've now been told I'm not allowed to make birthday presents for her friends anymore because it's embarrassing. Charming daughter that I have.
Showing Molly how to quilt and quickly realising that a lot of her stitches are better than mine. This will be a little wall hanging when we finish.
A bit of bag making. I can't afford any Cath's of so I bought a half metre of furnishing fabric for £6 at my local shop and managed to squeeze this roomy bag out of it. I winged the pattern and will post up some handy hints and tips next week. The biggest tip being - don't think to yourself ' I really ought to move that cup of coffee before I knock it over my sewing stuff ' and then not bothering to do so.
That's a good handy tip that is, I had to wash everything, fabric,scissors, pin cushion,cutting mat, etc etc etc. I am a daft-ass sometimes.
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely weekend with no daft-assness in your world.
See you next week.
