I have had fun playing with fabric and thread though, I made something for me and something for Fran.
I have been meaning to run one of these up for ages, mine was one that came with the set of hooks and was very cheap looking. I like this and it uses some more scraps up.
I should have put the ribbon tie a bit lower, I will move it later, maybe. I do have a pattern or three for these rolls but just made it up as I went.
Fran likes big sun glasses, it is her birthday soon and I like to give her summery things, so I made this for her.
The inside is a very pale yellow and sets off the turquoise trim nicely. As soon as I dug the fat quarter outer print from my stash I thought of the saying "2 swallows do not a summer make" there are many more than 2 here.
These are my specs so there will be lots of room for chunky sunnies. I will have to think of something else to make, possibly a new phone case, the ones I made her ages ago are quite scruffy now.
Now for the craft caddy.
I put all the names of the comments into a bag and fished around to pull one out. Saver of Suburbia, the bag is yours, just email me your snail mail and I will send it off to you.
I have a real give away coming up, a very desirable craft book. I will post photos tomorrow and give you all a week to comment. This will be for followers only and will be world wide, I know postage is steep but it almost Christmas after all.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. A day playing in the sewing room.
2. More scraps used up.
3. Smoked cod for dinner. Mmmmmm
4. I woke really early this morning so the house is spotless.
5. My sweet pepper plant is still producing, there are 5 young
peppers growing nicely.
I woke up and hit the ground running so all the house has had a blitz and looks good. I even moved the sewing room around so every inch was vacuumed. The bathroom and kitchen get done daily so they do not take long. I just want to wipe the big fridge out later and make a note of what I have to use up before it goes bad. I like to do this a couple of times a week, I hate waste of any kind. Mind you it does lead to some interesting food combinations at times.
I plan on making the most of my cleaningfest by having a day crafting tomorrow. I am taking Maggie to Ammanford first thing, 2 of her cats are having check ups and jabs. We will be back by 10:00, a quick coffee and I can cut, sew and press to my hearts content. Add in a little hooky and a smidgeon of knitting, lots of tea and the odd Fig roll for the perfect day. I hope that has not put the Kybosh on my plans, I ought to know better than to tempt fate.
The kitchen needs me, my fish will not cook its self.
