Order out of chaos!

I've had a bit of a day of it today, in that everything I've done has gone wrong. Well, almost everything. My fabric letters (thanks to all those who have ordered these!) take time to do. Well, I'd spent 30 minutes to a letter N for a Christmas NOEL that my local shop has asked for, only to discover the above. Haha. I'm going to keep it to remind me how back to front things can sometimes get!

Earlier, and before I got the children off to school, I wanted to sew together the pieces for a doorstop I'd been planning a then pinned and unpinned repeatedly because I couldn't get the roof to sit right. Finally satisfied I'd done it, I sewed it up. Only to discover it was on backwards. Big growl. It's looking better now, and needs some stuffing. I owe a huge thanks to the wonderful Bloomin' Myrtle for her inspiration and vision in my making of this, because the windows were pinched from her lovely beach huts. If you are lucky enough to be on her blogshop link here when she posts a few items, snap up immediately. She is amazing.

But then things went better with my JOY fabric bunting, which I've popped into the shop. So something has gone well today!

Happy Guy Fawkes all!

Sometimes you just have to walk away, get a cup of coffee, and go back to it later.

The fabric letters look great they look like they have allot of detailed work involved, this could have happened to any of us. I love the doorstop too. Julie.C

Ha ha, love it! My hub's initial is N and I think you made that letter just for him!
I have only just noticed that a blanket I am crocheting has an error in...I have gone too far to unpick it. Ha ho that is what shabby chic is all about, well that is my excuse now.
Hope your weekend is better.
