I have been ruching...is that even a word? Well it is now. Muslin to be precise, the first stage of my next piece. I wasn't sure it would work actually as it is so soft but the softness makes it even more special. Next time you see this it will look very different. It will be added to a larger piece of cloth and become an integral part of a bigger piece. Buttons too, more buttons to give away. I select the winner using an online number generator and you will have to trust me on that one because I'm not really one for having screen shots on my blog,
As you will know, unless you have been locked in a cupboard for a week, blogger went into meltdown last week and I lost comments. I did remind you all to leave another one if yours wasn't there and I had to do the draw with what was there. If you are reading this blogger...I WANT MY COMMENTS BACK.
Anyway, last weeks winner is Helena....let me have your postal stuff Helena and your buttons will be on their way. This week it's the three buttons in the top picture that I am trying to offload, slightly smaller than the others, one unlucky person will have these next week!!
It has been kind of mad so far this week and it's left me a bit out of sorts. I feel as if I need a good shake to get rid of invisible cobwebs, or to be plugged into something to give my batteries a boost..I feel quite weird actually. Unable to progress? Unable to enthuse? Hormones? haven't a clue. My days have gone by without much to show, (in my opinion) and it's not as if my house is spotless or I can see the time has been spent elsewhere...oh well....it's a mystery.
Sorry, I digress. During the muddle and fog that has been my week so far I have managed to end up (accidently) with three copies of the new magazine everyone is talking about....Mollie Makes...it's a long story that involves online ordering and not paying attention, you get my drift. So I am hoping to be able to recoup my dosh on two of them, one of them I want for myself. They are still in the packaging, pristine and new. I am told that the magazine is becoming scarce, that it is selling out fast....well not in my house!! It cost £4.99 and then there will be postage. I have checked that out and it will probably be prohibitive for anyone overseas. In the UK it is £2.48 so if anyone is interested drop me an e mail....
they have both been taken now....I am rescued!! Thankyou!
Now I am going to try and get my act together, to plan and hopefully feel as if I can actually achieve something before I return.......wish me luck!
p.s. I am such a numb nut... I forgot to say....just leave a comment to go in the draw for the buttons!!
