Every cloud has a silver lining...

Every so often I seem to start faffing around and not knuckling down to what I should be doing, or at least plan to be doing.  This weekend, for example, I had the whole weekend to myself...oooo hours of sewing I thought but it didn't quite turn out like that.

Maybe because the new bag I was working on had to be unpicked, (argh!!!)... worse than that though, it had to be unpicked TWICE...now you probably sitting there thinking, yeah one mistake it forgivable but to do 2 HUGE mistakes on one project is just stupid!!! 
But, as 'they' say (whoever 'they are? I've never worked that one out??)..every cloud has a silver lining..well it sure did for me as I've now ended up with a little red handbag for myself, as well as larger bag for my shop...of course the twice unpicked one being mine now.

I rarely get the opportunity to make things for myself, infact i should re-phrase that to; I rarely make the time to make things for myself, I'm a people pleaser...love making for others.  I'll leave you with a sneak preview of something new I'm working on...just to keep you in suspense lol =O) x

nothing wrong with unpicking :-)

it's called "trial and improvement" these days, rather than "trial and error" and works!
