Today I put the finishing touches onto the new bag I’ve made for Leah. This is what it looked like yesterday after a very full day of stitching….I didn’t bother to get dressed, just cut and sewed until about 4.30 pm when a shower was needed as it was Card Night and leaving the house wearing PJ’s just wasn’t an option.
I’ll show you the cards we made last night while I’m here.
My birthday card collection is growing very nicely.
…….here is the finished bag
I couldn’t be more pleased with the finished result, it was an easily followed tutorial and apart from a few unpicking’s I had to do it went together very well. Today my fingers are aching from all the manipulations required to stitch on the binding, and handle and turn it inside out twice! This arthritis in my fingers is not going to stop me stitching, that’s for sure!
You may remember our trip to IKEA last week, well today I unpacked and put to use my purchases. My sore hands meant Jordan was the chief assembler with a little help from Brooklynn!
This cabinet is to store Brooklynn’s toys at Nanny & Poppy’s and she was a big help as you can imagine!
Just the weekend between me and my return to work. I’ve had a really relaxing and restful holiday, and although I love my job, I love being at home even more!
Thanks for visiting.
