An Apron and a Confession!
Well my lovelies I have had a very pleasant and productive day... the first one in ages! Lovely Man will be over the moon when he gets home because I have, at last, 'done' his trousers! I confess that these have been lying in wait...waiting to be 'done' that is. Poor man has reminded me at EVERY given opportunity about them...how they have been waiting to 'be done' for over a year, how I have TWO sewing machines and yet his trousers are still waiting 'to be done'. So today, despite feeling a little under the weather I 'did' them! It took me all of 30 minutes (they needed taking up and a button sewing on!). Yes people I know, shame on me, such little tasks! But they were just that. Little tasks, boring tasks, not creative or interesting or fun! So there we are... I confess... I have been a B.A.D. woman for sooooo long... but today I repented and took my punishment...they are done, and so I am good again and Lovely Man is a very happy chappy indeed!
I also managed to make a pattern from an old favorite dress for an apron! I have recently started work in a wine store and have so far ruined three tee shirts by splashing myself with red wine either at the filtering stage or when helping customers to bottle their wine. For those of you who know me well enough you will know that I am often technically challenged and it is not uncommon for me to have a little altercation with one machine or another and get sprayed with a good dose of red vino...never happens with the white...always red! So anyhow I figured if I could find a patterned fabric that was basically the same color as red wine I would be well covered! Et voila!
Last but not least I also managed to make 4 greetings cards using some of my artwork printed onto good quality watercolor paper and mounted onto pretty pearlescent card! Wow! Think I deserve a glass of wine and a little relaxation now...ciao my lovelies!
