Is brought to you from the car. As I forgot it’s bloody elf day tomorrow, and girl elf needed the ends sewn in her skirt and hat.
Is not really my strong point!
Well, any sewing isn’t really my strong point really… just hoping…
Before I went back to work (6 1/2 months ago!), I had started sewing a tiny patchwork quilt. It had gone a bit wrong and ended up spending some time in storage. I dug it out to unpick the broken bit and repin it in the hope of getting a bit done over Easter. When I got it back out, I realised I’d already done that at some point (should I worry that I can’t remember????) and it just needed some sewing to finish.
So… guess what I did tonight? I still can’t sew though, but it’s acceptable for a first attempt. Well, I think so anyway! The original plan was to crochet around the outside, but the best way I think of to do that is to sew a blanket stitch around. And that isn’t happening tonight!
But learnt how to make little flowers today… I’ve had some tiny wooden hoops from flying tiger and had no idea what to do in them! This is my first attempt:
And this is how it happened:
I think it’s OK, not brilliant though. I just need ideas for the other 3 now!
