This week so far I seem to have done loads of little bits of things but not actually completed anything.
I really wanted to spend time with my daughters though before they go back to school and college on Monday and I have,I've spent some good quality time with them watching far too much TV and showing them both the basics of embroidery which is my current project.
I bought a faded denim bag for £3 at Primark last week with the intention of customising it somehow so I'm working on that and will hopefully have some results to show you next week.
I've also tried to do at least a couple of rows on my big zig-zag blanket every evening so I'm at nearly 50 rows now I think with it..I'm hoping thats about half way.
We have a crafty get together at my sister Ruby's house on a wednesday night and this week as Ruby is getting married next year she decided to start work on her wedding dress.
She bought a really gorgeous vintage white satin dress recently with the intention of taking bits off it and attaching new bits etc etc..
I actually love the dress as it is, its a really heavy pure white satin with no adornment at all,a simple neckline and long sleeves...I think its simplicity is its beauty.
BUT it is tiny...absolutely teeny weeny, My daughter Mica who is a size 8 tried it on and we couldn't fasten it,. It must have origanally belonged to someone very slim with tiny thin arms!
My current guilty pleasure is this...
I seem to have spent an inordinate amount of time this week glued to the DVD and then streaming and watching the as yet un-aired in the UK episode on my computer.
I don't often like a TV show as much as I'm enjoying Glee, its just so happy and fun.
I think the official title for someone like me is a GLEEK !!
Have a great weekend.
