I got up early (7.00am), had breakfast, read Saturday's paper, did a bit of pottering to clean up from Saturday night's dinner with Nephew (and friend), went back to bed & read a bit, then got up again & tidied the Small But Perfectly Formed room - there's a limit to the amount of mess I can stand, y'know? I can live with it for a while, but then, BAM! I have to clean up. I bought a bunch of magazine boxes (what are those things actually called, anyway?) from Ikea a while ago & started to sift through the two large piles of magazines on the living room floor, I moved all the crap off my sewing table, I even shifted some fabric around to make room here and there for the accumulated Holiday treasure...
Then I sewed. I made the previously discussed pouch for Miss Jerry, using this from here:
And this, from here:
with a co-ordinating blue zip, and blue ribbon, just to keep it from being too 'dark'. She's only seven!
And then I took it to work for the lovely buyer, without taking any photos. Oh well, you get the idea.
I also cut out two flat pouches from this, which I love:
oh, now, see, blogger is doing that stupid thing again where it won't put the pictures in the middle. I hate this.
Anyway, I'm lining the pouches with this, from here:
, which, amazingly, is the exact colour of the turquoise on the linen. Nice, huh? Pictures, I promise.
And now, gentle readers, because it is 2.57AM, and I have to be up at 5.30AM, I'm going back to bed, for another attempt at sleep. Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye...
