To Sew or Not to Sew. . .

Thank you to all of my readers who left comments about their favourite crafts. I have been thinking I should focus on one craft rather than having my flat strewn with everything from shells to fabric, glitter to sugar roses. Last weekend, I only went to the seaside so I could buy shells. I've not actually made anything with them, just washed them.

But I bought some fabric today and am feeling inspired. I'm glad I'm not like this at work or I'd get nothing done.

On Sunday, I plan to have a craft day. Wake up early and start sewing. . .a bag maybe or a change purse. . .or maybe I really should do something with those lovely shells. . .

Thank you so much to Lynn of Spyder's Corner for the wonderful award. The five things I would like to do is 1 go around the world 2 have dinner with Bill Clinton 3 have a room as a craft studio 4 have my own tv show 5 have a book published.

I pass this award to: Angie, Merry,Tertia, Rita, Shirley, PAD
Any big projects planned for this weekend?

Hiya,
Thank you for the lovely award,
That bag is gorgeous,
If your are going to sew, why not use the shells as a charm for the bag or purse, then you have suceeded in doing both.
I am not sure what I am going to do this weekend as normally when I make plans especially crafty ones, something goes wrong, or my mind has a different theme in it.
Hugs
Angie

Thanks so much for the award and the kind words Michele. I love the shape of that bag...is it one of yours? At this moment nothing much planned for the weeked other than taking my 13yo to her first semi-formal school 'mag ball'. This raises money for the school magazine at the end of the year. I am sure that my hubby and two kids will make the weekend busy though.

Focusing on a craft can be good for creativity, but having some side projects can also be great for when you feel frustrated with what you're focusing on!

I'm working this weekend, and I should really be thinking about my self-portrait for the week, cause work as been too tough for me to have the will and energy for my usual blogging!

Tertia said...

Thank You so much for the award. I feel REALLY STUPID, I might be crafty, but that does not make me very computer literate. I have no idea how to put the badge on my blog. After you have stopped rolling on the floor, laughing at me, could you please explain it to me in language that a 5 year old can ubderstand?
Not planning much for this weekend other than figuring out how to get that badge on my blog. LOL. We are having a long weekend in South Africa, so all my children and grandchildren will propably visit, which means I will not get much done, other than spending time with the family, but that is time well spent, so I don't mind.

Hi Michele, I want to thank you for the award my love, and for considering me one of your circle of friends, its such a lovely compliment. Bless you for that. By the way I did receive my fairy a couple of days ago, I have been meaning to let you know, shes absolutely gorgeous and thank you for giving me the chance to win her. I love your bag by the way, its a really roomy one, the sort I could really use. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
