or perhaps I have a very short attention span. this could also be true!
This scene may go a little way to explain my show and tell. At retreat last weekend my sewing machine gave me trouble with the tension when using an applique stitch and although I managed to nurse it home, I knew the time had come for a service.
As many of you fellow stitchers will understand, being parted from our sewing machine is a traumatic time and to pass that time I have finished several projects. I even dusted off my old machine, but that’s another story all together!
It was challenge week recently at card classes, first as a warm up we did the For You gift card. Then the card below. We were only able to use 3 elements (Ink, Punch & Card) my challenge was all together too dull, so when I got it home I added a few touches, kinda like pimping my card I guess!'
Obviously on a roll using brown I came up with the last card where it was a requirement to use one of each of the elements on the table. It was beginning to get a little crowded!
I really loved making these three cards, they have been added to my card stash.
Officially on two weeks holiday as of today, and I intend to make the most of every hour. We are having a new shower screen installed later this week, so Greg removed the old one in readiness.
14 years of use meant the recess required a good old fashioned scrub, so I began my holidays doing some serious cleaning, with Gumption and a scrubbing brush, oh and a toothbrush for the grout lines.
Now back to some more elegant pursuits….
Twisted Cowl from a freebie pattern here.
This Owl is also a freebie pattern.
You may wonder what will become off the owl…. wonder no more his is with friends!
To wrap up my eclectic show and tell for this week, I have a bag and two hand towels .
Followed closely by this little thread catcher from another freebie blog pattern found here.
That’s more than enough from me, so perhaps I will go and find a patch of sun to take my kindle and a cuppa for some more relaxation!
