It is her 50th birthday on the 27th and as my hand is still plastered I am unable to sew the bag I had in mind for her :( Purple is her fav colour and she has this odd obsession with gnomes :O so this fabric was perfect for her.
I normally take about an hour from start to finish making these but this one took over 5 hrs lolI found the lining fabric after a big sort out and had to use it before it got buried again
I managed a morning in town Monday, I have to get the train as driving is still a no no :(
This lovely box was in the 1st charity shop I went into and then I found the little bag of wooden alphabet beads
Space for my sewing machine feet and bits I need to put my hand to straight away instead of spending 10 mins looking for them
I was thrilled to bits to buy it for £3.99
If there are a few I tend to buy the lot even if they are the same clours lol
I make recycled things for the air ambulance charity shop, they give me unsaleable clothes and I return them as bags or cushions for them to raise funds.
This lovely table cloth kit was given to me when the manager found out I also love embroidery.
Before Christmas I went into Alfreton (Derbyshire) with my Daughter and just had to buy this sewing box for £14. I hope in the summer to paint it and put a transfer from the Graphics Fairy http://thegraphicsfairy.com/ on to it but I still can't make up my mind what so it's a good job I have a while before painting it lol
