JELLY ON A PLATE, JELLY ON A PLATE,
WIBBLE WOBBLE, WIBBLE WOBBLE, JELLY ON A PLATE!
Well, then, lovely WOYWWers (and other readers...), it's that time again. Show and tell!
I had just over half a metre of the lovely Botanicals fabric (as seen last week) so decided to make another tote as something to have in reserve if anyone needs a bag/prezzy. This time, it got teamed with this beautiful soft green check which I LOVE.
Here, I'm sandwiching together the bag lining, zipped section and a top bit of lining. Hence the pins, because three layers would just go walkies otherwise...and yes, I've learned that the hard way!
But now it needs a blooming good iron to finish it off :-)
Then with some of the offcuts, I made a covered notebook (A5, if you're interested!) Even though I allowed half an inch to the book's measurements, it was quite a tight fit....
I didn't add any embellishments as I thought it would detract from the gorgeous print. I was really pleased with this and it took about 15 minutes to make.
From the sublime to the ridiculous! This was the desk last Thursday.... I've been playing bass keyboard for the Kennet Accordion Orchestra recently, standing in for their normal player who's going through breast cancer treatment.
My previous image of accordions was a French bloke in a stripey t-shirt smoking a Gauloise...how wrong I was! The sound the orchestra creates is amazing - layered and complex. Anyhow, we were in a contest on Saturday and were playing Rock around the Clock in one category. So I made scarves for the five girlies - just hemmed triangles but they added to the overall impression. If you're interested, the Orchestra won the three group categories they were in. second in a small group, plus duos and soloists from the group came first in their sections. It was a good day!
The venue was quite large and this sign struck me as I was wandering down one corridor! Well, the mind bloggled, it really did. But, seeing that I'm a sticky beak, off I went to have a nosey, visions of large jellies in my mind.....
Oh, it's wobbling exercise machines. That's what the sign meant! I dread to think what would have happened if I'd have had a go on these.....underground tectonic plate disturbances in deepest, darkest Dorset!!
Thanks for reading my nonsense, I'm off to make some jelly :-)
