Cup of tea, anyone? ;-) I've been busy with my stringing, and I hope I'm not becoming a string bore, so I won't hark on and on, but I'm thrilled with my teapot cover. I've also completed my first zipped project, which caused me no end of problems, but which my daughter absolutely loves. So it was (almost) worth it.
She'd actually made the string block for this one, so it's pretty much her own make - I just made it up for her. So I'm counting it as my third string project! But maybe it ought to be 2 1/2!
I've also got a lot of pleasure this week from covering buttons with some of my favourite fabrics. I've left long threads on them so I can attach them to hearts and bags and all sorts of ideas I have for them. But for now, I'm just enjoying looking at them.
It's very simple to cover buttons, and very quick to do. My sort of project!
The other rather lovely part of it is that I've been sitting quietly sewing each evening, and it inspired my daughter to get out her sewing kit as well, and she's now busy making something. Though I'm not allowed to know what it is!
Like everyone else, we've been so shocked by the images from Haiti this week. My son went off to school this morning in his hat... they are doing a hats for Haiti day, and hopefully raising lots of funds. It's heartwarming how many schools are doing what they can. I know I'm like everyone in wishing things speed up quickly with aid and help reaching the people who most need it. My prayers this week have been very much with Haiti, and I just wanted to mention it in my post.
