TODAY...

is the first of my days for getting back to "normal"... well my version of what passes in this house for normal anyway!! He-He x

No work for 7 nights ..Wooo-Hoooo x SO I picked out fabrics for the first of my Secret-Round-Robin blocks.... I will be using SOME of these..


AND I worked on the pendants for my brother and his (ex-army) mates to hoist on their caravans when they are on a rally x ... WELL I can tell you I was ready to hoist the pendants SOMEWHERE!!!!!!

You may remember he brought me this fabric..


The Burgundy is fine... the yellow/gold is a nightmare!! It has frayed... it is a different weight AND it is slippy!!!!!

OK rant over, I have stabilised and sewn and now he has 6 pendants...


here they are with the original one for me to get the sizes from.. (and 2 have red NOT black ties because he did not get enough!!)... 


NEVER EVER AGAIN... he can make them himself next time xx

Keep smiling

Like your black and whites with the red. Look forward to seeing what you are doing with these.

Teach him to choose fabrics! if he had to sew them he would be more careful!

Good work :) I´d probably thrown it out of the house!
