I DID IT MY WAY..............!
As Julia will tell you, I can be a little stubborn at times :-) This can manifest itself in many ways - for example, I hardly ever stick to a recipe; I like to navigate from a map and view Satnav as an irritation which I yearn to chuck out of the window. Sewing patterns? I usually do my own thing. Pins for example, I almost never use them - in fact, I'm a proud member of the Non-Pinners of the World Unite movement *grin*
But there are times when I recognise that not using them would be stupid...and this is one of them. I've constructed the exterior of the mini tote and now need to insert the lining. I have learnt the hard way (!!) that fabric can be a slippery little b*7%*r and now pin the lining in all the way round. Bain't be natural, I tell 'ee.....but it saves a lot of cussing and blue air if I do it.
I hate conforming..........
The finished tote, ready for the Crop sales table :-)
So are these......
And these! Now to cut out some desk tidies.......
This is the bunting I couldn't show you last week, but I know it's been received now. It was for Jackie ScrapBangWallop's new grandaughter, Lara :-)
Occasionally you see something on the desks that really grabs you and such has been the case with Morag (Paper Rainbow). She is a comparatively new desker but goodness, her work speaks to me. So much so that I bought one of her pieces!
I love it. My favourite colours, the clever collage work, loads of sparkle. It makes me smile - thanks Morag!!
Have a great week - it's a busy one for me. There's the food shopping for the Crop to start thinking about and a few more items to sew. I might even have to....deep breath....MAKE A LIST.... *grin*
