But recently, instead of lusting after all the wonderful bits and pieces other bloggers seem to always be up to but sitting on my hands ( and piles of stashed craft equipment ) and not giving them ago, I have decided to just get on and do them.
Finding the time has been easy, one rule ... switch off the TV for the whole evening or at least a couple of hours.
So out came the sewing machine, quick dust down and we began to make friends.
Inspiration came from here
and as with most things from Gill, who always gets things done !
I had no t-shirts to use, so ordered some cheap material from ebay ( gotta love it ) sent N to the pub, children to bed and set to.
The above photo is for my 30 days of Beauty project, proving to myself I am no longer just a Knitter but a Sewer too.
The finished trousers in all their glory and 101+ mistakes, I can tell you them all, not least of all is the snugness of the waist but hey I learnt to love my sewing machine, enjoyed my evening and
