Busy doing nothing much




I had a lovely quiet day on Saturday. Not much housework as lucky for me Ian had the day off on Friday and did most of it. After cleaning the kitchen I decided the window needed some colour; and an hour later some new bunting was in place. I was on a roll and made some more, this time for my Folksy shop. It made a nice change to be sewing, I always seem to be making granny squares at the moment. It's a long process my granny square blanket but more about that when I've finished it (I'm way behind but catching up). That's what I like about sewing, you can see the finished piece a lot quicker.

So here are some photos taken in my garden this afternoon before the rain came down.

And the custom bunting for my kitchen window. It worked out perfect, 7 flags all hanging perfect.

What a lovely idea to hang bunting in a window. Hurray for not having to do loads of housework. Have a great day.

I do envy those who are good with a sewing machine. I can just about go in a straight line. My poor mum was a seamstress by trade as was her mother and her mother before that. My two sisters can use a sewing machine but I'm afraid that skill just passed me by.

Lovely! I agree about sewing being quicker, sometimes crochet does seem slow, I think that it is the ends that slow it down! xx

Very gorgeous. My sewing is even slower than my crochet. By far!

Happy weekend.
