How's your holiday week been?
One word sums up mine
Now I'm not one to moan, but perleeez.
Summer wardrobe ready, toes ready, a subtle shade of green if you please, deckchairs dusted off, garden looking stunning.
Oh yes a week off enjoying Flaming June LOL!
So I thought a bit of happy crafting would fit the bill, y'know cheer me up make the bad weather not seem quite so, well bad! Tidy up a few loose ends finish off a few projects.
I thought this was a GOOD IDEA.
I've made a bag it's beautiful, lovely soft cotton yarn in gorgeous colours.
Here it is.
And neat work if I say so myself.
Just needed a lovely lining
That's where the problem started.
I'll put in a zip I said to myself, bags look good with a nice zip.
Much rootling around produced a nice new zip from the depths of my drawers. No problem I can do zips have done many in the past, lapped, invisible, open ended, yeah I know about zips.
People it took me most of yesterday to put that zip in (lots of back to front mistakes and many unpickings). Finally I managed it and it
looked good until I tried to fit it all into the bag.
OMG it just looked so crap!
Seam ripper out and today I have spent the morning unpicking.
So 24 hours later I'm right back at square one.
I've just pinned the lining in the bloody bag AGAIN with no zip!
Now I'm starving and need my lunch. So I'm off, the bag can stay there.
I DON'T CARE!
I shall deal with it later.
