What I Did At The FNSI!


Last night I had planned to sit in my sewing room and do some machine work. Instead I stayed in the lounge room and made four more of my little brooches while watching Collingwood getting beaten in the preliminary final. Thank goodness Mitchell was at a party and we didn't have to put up with him yelling at the tv!
They have now joined the other ten I had been working on over the last two weeks!
This is a thread catcher I finished but hadn't shown you yet. Doesn't it sit nicely on my threadle machine!

I'm hoping to work on some more sewing today. It's a bit of a quiet weekend for a change. We're going out for tea so no cooking for me!

BTW, did you know Jenny of Elefantz is having a giveaway? Some gorgeous gum boot fabric along with some lovely buttons. Head over to Jenny's blog and tell her I sent you in your comment because if you win, I win too! 
How cool is that!
