Last night I finished trimming all the 'petals' for My Precious Retro Flowers, 'hurray'!!! This has felt like a mammoth task, and I am so pleased that I can now start piecing at long last!
So to celebrate I splashed out in John Lewis today and got some new pins and needles to ensure I am not left stranded at Retreat. Having had a fatal needle-pin collision whilst making the Ditty purses, I was left without any spares, and all my old flower-head pins are now rather wilted; I didn't want to be embarrassed by my headless bent stalks!
Also pictured is the clasp I bought on eBay that arrived yesterday for the framed purse class. I have to be honest, I prefer these bigger balls, and although there will be frames to buy there, I wanted to make sure I had a substantial pair!
I know I have some blog and email catching up to do, but it is almost time for the Homeland finale, so please excuse me whilst I pay attention elsewhere xxx
