IF THIS JOINT IS RAIDED
SOMEBODY GIVE ME SOME GIN
(by the marvellous Andy Fairweather Low, google it if you don't know it, brilliant track!)
I'm going for three in a row of short and sweet posts...there's been more time socialising than crafting this week!
I'm part way through making some more specs cases and tissue holders - I found out last Friday that the cafe down the harbour will sell these for me and put the money straight into the RNLI tin. Brilliant, I get to do the fun part of making and someone else does the selling - woohoo!
G and I were invited to a Burns Night last Saturday - a table of 11 were going, all mates from the WI plus partners. I knew there was some tartan fabric knocking about in my stash:
Aha - found it! There was enough to cut into wide-ish strips to make me a sash. There was no finesse in the making, I'm afraid, just whizzing through turned over hems. As G is half Scottish, he was due something a little more special:
A Royal Stuart tartan waistcoat and very fine he looked too. I held my sash together with a pewter brooch that my friend Kate gave me years ago. It was a great evening with a proper pipe band, haggis and whisky. Oh and some dancing too - Dashing White Sergeant anyone?! :-D
My niece visited this week as well and, good girl, brought me a little prezzy:
Cute bottle, huh?! That's going to be upcycled into something soon.
Have a good week folks xx
