GET ABOUT AS OILED AS A DIESEL TRAIN,
GONNA SET THIS DANCE ALIGHT,
COS SATURDAY NIGHT'S THE NIGHT I LIKE,
SATURDAY NIGHT'S ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT.
Ermmm, don't know if that's really the most appropriate lyric for welcoming everyone to the WOYWW crop this Saturday..lol!! But it's one of my favourite Elton John tracks so it starts off today's post *grin*
I would say it was about a 75% for/ 25% against blinging the bag. Rock on, you Blingtastic Bunch! Actually, in the end I did a Buttons version as well as some fairly subdued bling - the fabric was loud enough on its own!!
What's on my workdesk today? A right old hotch potch, that's what! There's too much going on at the moment and I seem to have Butterfly-Minditis; I can't seem to settle to one task, another idea pops into my head and off I go, chasing rainbows. Sigh.
The makings of another linen and gingham tote....
D'ya like the pleated front going down into the pocket - an integral part of the bag? Completely and utterly part of my design from the get go, oh yes indeedy.... (and nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that I cut the linen about 5cms wider than the gingham...oh no, not at all..... *cough*)
Appliqueing (is that a real word??) some hearts onto the linen for a cushion cover with ties...
Sewing up the bean bag part of a hangie-bin whatsit...
Life sure is full on at the moment :)
Did you know I have a WOYWW soul sister in Missouri?! We're both 51, love yarns, fabric, gardening, cookery and a shared appreciation of crochet elephants... Yup Sandie Leigh at EatWriteDreamStitch, I MEAN YOU!! We promised that we'd send each other something made completely out of scraps. This beautiful stitched ATC arrived this week...
I love it because I'd never have the patience to make this in a gazillion years!! Thank you, Sandie - I hope your parcel arrives soon :)
Thank you to all the lovely folk who commented last week, I was really touched by it all. It is taking a lot longer to comment back now work has reared its ugly head, but I promise I'll get around to you all!
Oh, and if anyone spots the Odd One Out on my desk, there might be a small prizelet winging its way soon. All will be revealed next week!
