... this last week has just flown away ! Between my parents (avoiding some disasters .. but plunging into others! lol x) and having my grandson stay while his mum was in hospital there has been little or NO sewing done for days on end x... I can feel the withdrawal stress creeping up!
I have managed some knitting in the evenings .. before I slump over!! lol x .. but nothing finished as yet x
Actually ..... I DID manage one project .A friend of mine is a confirmed and contented NONE sewer .. she invites me to tea and requests I bring my sewing kit if anything needs doing xx .. suits me I love having my tea made and she is a good cook xx
SO.... to the amazement of EVERYONE she was given a sewing project for Christmas!!...
you can guess where this is going I'm sure!!
I have been putting off making it ... but then caved in as I thought it would be a QUICK project!!... oh my!
It is DONE...
but never again! There were little to NO instructions .. the ric-rac was supposed to go all round the wings .. but not enough was supplied... lining up the front back and facing was a nightmare ..the sparse instructions said .. do not over fill ..but there was barely enough stuffing to fill the head... I could go on .... BUT... I would rather forget the whole thing!
LOL x at least it is done .. and Sue loves it xx
Maybe THIS week I will manage a LITTLE bit of happy sewing?
I have also got sooooo far behind with reading blogs I gave up and am starting at the top !
I DID manage to go out on Friday evening to meet up with a group of the girls I used to work with ... this is the pudding I had to eat ..
it was a struggle but I battled to the very end! Shame I could not lick the glass xx... they were telling me about one of our former colleagues who retired last year and who has been reported as saying .....retirement is boring with long days filled with nothing!! She needs to come and spend some time with me xx
