Thanks Blogger for making my virtual life a bit stressful over the last 24hrs! (Edit: No need to re-post yesterday's - it's 9.50pm and I've noticed it back - thank you Blogger geeks x). If that's the worst Friday the 13th can offer, I'm OK with that!
Well with an evening to myself, I set to completing a few bits and pieces. I made a card to go in my parcel with Trudi's Bee blocks, packaged up my tea-towel swap in eager anticipation of hearing from Leonie about who and where I will be sending it to, and unfortunately I won't be posting any pictures until appropriate!
But I can show you some little 'extras' I made that were not on the 'To Do List'!
With some long thin pieces of fabric, a little folding, pressing and some poppers, this is what I ended up with...
The idea came from Handmade Living, issue1. Mine is an Amy Butler sari print, the girls opted for the pink and the one that looks like 'mummy's handbags', (good girl trained to spot Orla Kiely at age 4!), and the Doctor Who Tardis blue with red stitching as requested by my little Time Lord.
It's quite a nice magasine if you spot it on your travels, although it is published by the same people as Sew Hip, and this issue does have some of the same projects that I have already seen in the last 10 months, so buyer beware, there may also be other repeats of food and garden articles from sister magasines too.
Well one week down, and two to go until half term, and it wasn't so bad, but for now, I hope your real and virtual weekends go to plan!
