Could Have Done Better.
That should be written on my weekend report card I think! I have managed to do quite a bit of cooking (flapjack, pecan tassies and carrot and coriander soup) but I have not accomplished much on the craft front. We did some decorating yesterday (at last we've made a start!) so that was Sunday written off. On Saturday I did some preparation work for some bunting I've been asked to make but was unable to get further than cutting out the fabric because I wasn't able to print the templates for the name that I need to applique - I couldn't do it free hand because my art skills are not up to much. The fabric I'm using for the bunting is really pretty....
I will hopefully make some more progress this week. I did manage to whizz up a couple of lavender bags for a friend who wants to hide them amongst her son's smelly football kit:
I wasn't sure what size to make them and I think these are actually a bit on the large side but The Customer was happy with them and they'll do the job.
Sadly, I missed out on the Ardingly Quilting Show because of the forecast for badweatherthatnevercame. Once I had decided not to go, I made plans to decorate so when I woke up and there wasn't snow or ice it was too late for me to revert back to Plan A. Apparently it was amazing, I could kick myself really, but I will have to find out if there is a show in Farnborough which is a bit further away but do-able.
Re-reading what I've written I realise that I have actually done quite a lot this weekend, I just haven't done all the things I would have liked. So not too bad after all then!
As it's Monday, I'm going to head over to Handmade Harbour now to see what everyone else has been up to with their crafts over the weekend http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/ .
Have a great week,
