I have taken a rest this weekend from embroidery to do a little bit of sewing. I was hoping to get a couple of little gifts made for C*****mas – but as always, when ever I sew anything, I jump in feet first and completely disregard the pattern until it is too late! I thought that I would attempt a very simple bag, but so far have removed the handle three times! I can only apologize in advance to the recipient. I chose a very vivid, bold pattern by Joel Dewberry called Nottinghill – and am now worried about this too!
Other preparations are also underway. I am generally useless in the kitchen, unless it is to make a cake and, although a little later than usual, I now have the fruit soaking in copious amounts of alcohol.
