I was given a load of little bottles of shower gel and body lotion, with the hope I could make something for the Christmas Fayre. Having done my diamond decorations, I had lots of scraps of Christmas fabric left. So I used a combination of two techniques- Victorian Crazy Patchwork and machined nine little stockings. Speed was of the essence, so I didn’t do all the embellishments – and they are only patched on the fronts, the backs are plain felt – but I am happy with the result. Even the ribbons I used to bind the edges were scraps and short lengths. The IKEA display trees continue to prove useful!
It has been an up-and-down week thus far;
Up – I have managed to prepare lots of stuff for Saturday’s Fayre
Down – the house is a tip, bits of thread and wool everywhere
Up – I won 2 free tickets to Motorcycle Live at the NEC
Down – We were very tired & decided it would cost too much to go
Up – we were able to pass the tickets on to somebody else
Down – I had yet another rejection to one of my job applications
Up – a friend contacted me about a child needing Maths Tuition
Down – I smashed a pretty glass dish
Up – Bob had a tax refund
But I think the ‘ups’ are winning!
