I had decided to find something on tv to watch while I hand-stitched the bunnies faces, but just as I sat down with my tools and was ready to start, my daughters friend came to me and said:
"Aunty Kylie! It's my mum's birthday today and I have no money to buy her a gift! Could we make her a heart or something?"
Goodbye hand-stitching, hello surfing internet and browsing my craft books to find something to make. Something quick.
These potholders from Martha Stewart fit the bill. The only down side was that by the time we found a project and selected some fabric from my stash, I didn't have much time left before her mother arrived to pick her up.
I rushed the binding and just managed to take a quick photo before her mother made it out of the car and knocked on the door.
I am working again this weekend so plan on having a sewing day today, hand-stitching in front of the tv. Front door is locked, phone is off the hook and my mobile has been buried inside the linen closet! Maybe I should park my car in the next street over just in case?
