Life here has slowed down to a snails pace this week. Combine a week of temperatures in the low 30s, visitors, and a rotten cold, and I seem to have come to almost a full stop. The heat and my cold have left me with little energy for sewing and blogging, and visitors leave little time or opportunity for blog reading and writing. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but it does feel like it sometimes.
I can report the arrival of my name tag for the Fat Quarterly Retreat. It's made my Rennee of Nellie's Nicities (who just happens to live not far from where I was born and raised). Like a lot of people, I don't check the new flickr as often as I used to, so I missed my name tag altogether, and missed commenting on it. But I am honestly thrilled with it
The stitching is really small and very neat. The back is pretty too
So now you'll know who I am! Unfortunately, I don't think Renee can make it next weekend, which is a real shame.
As a rule, I don't do routine sewing, which is why one of the dog beds got to this state
I was sweeping up little foam bits in my sleep. The holes were beyond repair, so I thought I'd make a new cover with some Ikea fabric I bought for a quilt back, but never used.
I don't think she's over impressed with it, do you?
And last but not least, I think I still have time to make a new bag for my trip to London next weekend
It's going well so far, but I have to do the tricky bit around the top now. If I can breath again tomorrow, I'll try and get this finished!
Bye for now....
