Yes, I've been sewing again. I designed this circular needle roll last night and I am really pleased with it. I used a button and elastic fastening rather than ribbon and find it to be more secure...time to find some knitting related buttons!
I also made this little denim tote bag, I really like her and plan to make a bigger one with two pockets this afternoon...if Millie lets me!
We're off to town in a minute, the craft set I bought her on Wednesday (from M&S) doesn't work too well, the glue they supplied doesn't actually stick the mosaic pieces to the photo frame and box, it just dries and then they ping off. So, I'm putting my consumer rights hat on ans we will be finding her something else...hopefully to keep her busy whilst I am sewing!
We go away on sunday for a week, DH has a course in Southampton and his company have agreed to pay for a bigger hotel room so we can all go. It will be great to be able to see old friends and family as well as being able to go shopping in a city again! I'm really looking forward to the journey down as we are planning to go via Ikea in Bristol and have a hot dog/chips/icecream lunch...followed by copious amounts of Dime cake! (Almondy)
