YOU WILL FIND ME, TIME AFTER TIME...
After a sluggish start (craft-wise!) to the New Year, it's been all systems go this week. Archie's bunting was well received, which was rather nice and I was wondering what to do next when my knitting needles really ticked me off...as they do ;-) They're in a gigantic bag where you have to get them all out to find a pair and this annoyed me, so I thought I'd make myself a knitting needle roll.
You might want to get yourself a coffee/tea/drink of choice...there's a few pics.
I searched around and found this pretty fabric featuring sewing machines and all things crafty (Wipso, did you give this to me?) and a pretty purple spotty for the lining.
Making things up as I go along....dum-di-dum...attaching the lace to the top of the needle holdery bit.
Attaching the purple to the back panel and sewing in the tubes to hold the needles.
After sewing that to the main outer fabric, you then have to turn it all out the right way. It's at this point that you seriously start to wonder if it's going to be ok!
And then you find it isn't and so the seam ripper has to come out. I'd put on the flap the wrong way round!! Sigh, even now, I should take time to stop and actually think what it is I'm supposed to be doing - luckily, it was easily remedied.
Et voila - needles all in order. No more rummaging and cursing for me :-D I know the tubes aren't all equal, but I don't care!
It's only me that's ever going to see it!
But that wasn't the only activity that's seen action on my desk this week...
G needed to take a photo of something to do with 'Time' for his weekly camera club competition. He'd had an idea of using my metronome and wanted the tuba and some music to add to the pic. So that's why there's my bass on a fabric covered chair on my workdesk...you don't see that very often huh?! It all looks a bit random doesn't it?
This is the competition entry:
Beautiful - and with enough different times on that metronome to please the sternest contest judge. Photo judging is so incredibly subjective however, you just can't tell what'll please them....we shall see. It was fun creating the image anyway!
Have a great crafty week - I suspect I won't be showing you quite such a random desk next time but hey, you just never know!
