Somewhere in the middle of the day, I had to go out in the car.... and someone drove into the back of me!!! (For those of you who missed my drama in the summer, this is the SECOND time our poor little car has been rear-ended in about six months..... I wasn't driving it last time, by the way). HOW TEDIOUS... and now my back hurts.
Back to craftiness.... I haven't been able to get near the sewing machine since last Wednesday, so nothing much to show... except the Small Tote bag I finished off last Wednesday. Just a simple little one with flat o-rings in the straps. It has light fusible wadding and medium-light interfacing to give it a bit of gentle structure.It matches the hat (...yes, yes - hat patterns will be out ASAP!! I'm working towards my hat-making workshops in September. Oh - that's not far off, is it?). Colours are a bit washed out here for some reason. The fabric is much prettier in real life. You can also see the hat I made in that print in the background.
In the late afternoon my little Petal drew a picture. She proudly announced "THAT'S ME!" (the two bits at the top are her pigtails, she tells me).
We photocopied the original, laminated it, punched holes in it and got to work with some wool and a plastic needle..... VOILA! A self-portrait "embroidery". She was very proud. I was beaming. I took photos and took the embroidery home to show her Daddy. He was proud, too.
So the day ended beautifully.
