I have been laughing a lot the past three days and thought I would write a really funny post, but alas, zilch. The minute I sat down to write in my blog I got a blank mind! So it's just my sewing news today.
I think nearly running over a drunk that staggered out into the road in front of my car and also the wind ripping my car door out of my hands and knocking into the car next to mine, might have something to do with the laughter fading away today.
Also getting told off for committing a small act of kindness towards some strangers really wiped the smile off my face.
But guess what makes me happy?
Sewing this pouch made me happy! A beautiful free pattern, with a clear tutorial, from Skip to My Lou. I made a few at Christmas for gifts but forgot to take pictures!
The flower is a little project I found in this book. It uses a toilet roll for the petals. Pretty paper is glued to the toilet roll before 'slices' are cut out and semi flattened into the petal shapes. Tissue paper is used to cover the petals and then its decorated as desired. I am going to thread beads onto mine and hang it from the window. I think it will look pretty with a cluster of these all hanging at different lengths.
