Well I'm almost at 50 folks. Only two more to go. Pretty exciting actually.
Did you know I actually don't own a sewing machine? The one I use belongs to my mum. She bought it when she was 18. Bernie has been going strong all these years. Bernie usually lives at my house, and has some quite some time. Recently Mum asked if she could "borrow" her sewing machine. I said no, I was in the middle of something, and she sheepishly said ok. Then I thought what an awful daughter I was denying access to something that actually belongs to her, so I took it over and we have now been apart for a week (it feels like a month).
So my creativity has halted to some degree. I suddenly feel like I can't do ANYTHING without a sewing machine. (and Beverley doesn't help by always telling me to make bunting haha)....
BUT I have an idea. It was about the 20th idea I had tonight (the first 19 ideas required a sewing machine). You know that box I made for my niece? The one I hate. The one I told you about and showed you and you all thought I was crazy for thinking it was feral?
Well I have another idea. I don't know if it's going to work, but I'm giving it a bash and I'm excited.
It requires sandpaper, glue, an old music book from the Op Shop, white spray paint, black ink, and a clear plastic knob that I will find at Bunnings (or else I might cry) and some elbow grease. That ugly box has a new life ahead of it and I hope like hell that it works.
Here's to better luck this time around!!
And right about now I want to do a linky party thing where people show me their failures and how they fixed them, but that's just way too advanced for me right now. I only just got a sign off name so one step at a time Christy!
Here are a few other things I picked up the other day.
What are you working on at the moment?
