I am feeling slightly virtuous as i did have a good go at the housework yesterday - dusted, hoovered, washed floors, did loads of washing and even, i may add, some ironing, yuk! so i decided i deserved a treat and bought these
they are soo pretty, and don't flowers just make you feel better!
There is one room i have not tackled yet and there is a good reason for this, because everytime i do i find a book or an unfinished project and start pfaffing with that! this is my sewing area - its such a mess - if you are a very tidy person, look away now!
my mother would be sooo disappointed in me! but i will tackle it today, ... ,maybe.
Surprises - i had a lovely parcel come yesterday - it was from Lesley, i had won a competition on her post!
such gorgeous fabric and buttons and a lovely card which is a design her mum had painted - how fantastic is that! thank you sooo very much Lesley.
One project i have to finish today because its been driving me nuts is with this oilcloth -
my machine hates it and keeps jamming - have covered up the feed dogs but that means i have to sew it more or less freehand and i just can't keep it straight enough! i was talking to a friend about it and she said try putting paper underneath and then just rip it off afterwards! well, brilliant - why didn't i think of that!
and finally, i have bought some of this - to make these --
i have never attempted socks before but the sock startitis club has inspired me!
am having to rush now as this b....y computer has blacked out twice whilst i have been doing this post! time to start saving for a new one i think!
have a lovely weekend!
