Sore Fingers

I spent the afternoon yesterday making a child's apron in oilcloth, never never again, it is the most awful stuff to sew and my poor fingers are sore from trying to poke the pins through a double fold for the seams so ended up just enfolding the seams into bias binding and doing an edge around the apron.  I future think I will stick to material lol.

Today I am off out to a craft class where we are doing altered boxes (I think) so will show you that when complete (no more candles for a while) I hope to go to Rachel's on Saturday for a crafty afternoon hopefully nothing goes wrong health or anything else wise as I have missed going over the last couple of weeks.  Will probably take the stuff with me to make a DT card or two and possibly my knitting.

I will be back later on to do some blog hopping, so hope you all have a good weekend and manage to get some crafty time for yourselves.

Love Alison xx

  10. Glad you finished the apron is this one of the 20 you had to do? It turned out lovely though. Good idea to leave the candles for a while seeing you nearly caused a disaster a couple of times....easy to do though. Did that once grilling chops...went outside ended up talking to the neighbours we had a glass of champers and then oh my gosh, the chops!!...have a great day at the class...xxxxx


Thank you for you for leaving a message for me I really appreciate your taking time out to take a look and comment. Alison x
