What is it with the pointy end of holidays - it all just seems to rush away !
The last two days have been a glorious time - lying on the floor oil- painting floorboards and climbing ladders to give yet another coat of paint to the the door surrounds. I was determined to finish at least one room this holidays and it is done (all bar one door which I will do after the carpet comes out).
The carpet people rang to say our carpet is ready..... ooops.............pity the rooms weren't.
So what of the crafting ? I did manage to totally stuff - up a bag yesterday - that's an achievement. Having received my gorgeous spotty slicker from Spotlight courtesy of Jane I decided I could use the bits I had hoarded.
So, cut out and sewn , with lining and pocket and handle and the little bag tucks at the bottom and then sewed the bloody panel one a good inch or two off to one side - totally crappo. I thought of adding something artful to the side for balance and it looked pretty much like someone trying to cover up the fact that they put the piece on in the wrong spot. Could I take it off an move it? No because all the little needle holes are right there in the plastic. Oh well - I take the stuff-ups quite well as i am so used to them !
Hopefully I'll have pics of the hallway tomorrow and today's craft as well - all these little bits will be in the hallway !
This look like an eye-spy page. So can you find the box my mothers wedding ring came in? The man with wonky arms?, sauce bottle stoppers, teeny tiny spider-web like embroidery.
Plenty more of these little treasures, all collected and waiting for their new home (anything is an improvement on living in the underpants drawer).
