I've tried to get some sewing bits done today, just a little but I have been completely interrupted many, many times. We've coloured pictures, we've baked and decorated cakes, I've had to watch many different dances and shows, we've been to buy a new school bag for the eldest and all I wanted was to get my scrappy trips basted!
It has taken all afternoon for me to get this done! Hopefully I will get to start quilting it later once 'his nibs' comes back from work. Half term was meant to be about quilting this and my other WIP so I could move on to starting my Swoon quilt. Aaaaarrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhh!
In other news, last week I was lucky enough to win a £25 voucher for the Village Haberdashery courtesy of Charlotte who was celebrating a blog birthday and had a little giveaway. I spent hours trying to decide what to spend my winnings on. Honestly, hours. Eventually I popped a rainbow set of pearl bracelet fat eighths into my basket because I couldn't resist them. Quickly followed by some Ruby Star Rising clocks in orange and some Kona in ivy to go with it plus a reel of matching thread and some magnetic closey type things.
These are destined to become a little bag for me for the spring/summer when it eventually starts to show itself. I have a really simple tutorial to refer to as this is me venturing into the unknown, having never made a bag before. Something quick and easy to do, hopefully inbetween interruptions!
