My hands don't know what's hit them as I've been hand sewing all day. My sewing machine is grateful for the rest though. Or at least it would be were it a living being and not a machine.
I had a lovely chat to Lucy today - who is actually a real person by the way, with a voice and everything and it's nice to know I'm not the only one with holes in my fingers :o)
My friend Kayla popped round this morning for a coffee and a natter. She ended up helping me cut out some fabric flowers and has offered to come with me on Friday night to hold my hand.
I sewed the buttons onto these:
Put together a whole bunch of fabric corsages.
Had to squeeze in a quick trip to Hobbycraft for some brooch pins and barretts (sp?).
Came home and stitched them on.
I've a few more to make this evening and I'll then put them onto card so they look a bit more special.
Tomorrow is all about pricing things up and trying to find some nice paper bags from a nice paper bag seller. I also hope to get a few more little bits made but as Friday night looms I want to make sure I've got everything ready in time. The good thing is that lots of people at school have been asking about my stall and at least one person has threatened to buy something!!
Poor Ruby is feeling a bit shaky having received a worrying email from her Maker threatening to take her 'home' if the awful music continues. Slurping the dregs of yesterday's latte seemed to help. The Sausage Monster set up this shot and insisted I blog it!!!
Tonight will have to be short and sweet as I want to be finished by the time DH and the terrible twosome return from swimming. I'm going to sit down at the comfortable end of the room tonight and talk to my beloved through whatever dross he chooses to watch on TV - just so he knows I still love him ;o)
So without further ado - you lovely funny commenters here is tonight's blast from the past. A bit of a departure from the 'novelty' fun of the past few days. A hit that I learned the lyrics to from Smash Hits magazine nearly 30 years ago and can, sadly, still remember to this day.
A story of angst in the face of a love affair gone wrong - enjoy!
