WOYWW

Good morning all!!
Blogger is playing me up today or maybe its just me!
I had such a busy day yesterday and today I am catching up on chores.
Wipso - that little sewing wonder woman, who we all know and love - gave me a little sewing job.
Two pairs of curtains - 3 metres long!!!!! As you know, I always help her cut curtains but these were so big we decided it would be easier if I sewed them here at home where I can spread out. Sorry, I forgot to take a snap - the fabric was very pretty and it sewed like a dream. They just weighed a ton because they had thermal linings.
Now - I can hear you thinking so what's on the desk today then???
Well even the most skilled craftsperson can have little accidents.....
I dropped those lovely, sharp, pink, thread snippers on my black linen - trousered leg and pierced two neat, round holes in the them!!! Hence this morning found me doing an invisible darn....
You can't see it can you????  Ha - must have worked then!! Lol.
Also on my desk are a few more of my African flowers which I made at the Knit n natter on Saturday. Great to see you Suz and hope the big sleep boosted your batteries.
And finally....
Last night my wonderful little sis and her gem of a hubby took me out for tea and to the Severn Theatre to see "That'll be the day". If you like golden oldies from the 60's and 70's then go and see it - it was fab!

OK - I will do my best to visit a few more desks this week. If you want to join in then hop over to Julia's blog and follow Mr Linky to see what everyone is up to.
Have a great day!

Well Jo that invisible repair is amazing, Id love to be able to master that art!!

There is something quite satisfying in making curtains I find, as much as they are a bit boring, they look like curtains in no time at all!! My kind of making I think!!

What a great evening you all had, sounds like a good time was had by all!

Have a great week Jo!

Have a great week! I wish I could make curtains (and sew in general!) as my daughter quite enjoys making things and I haven't really given her much encouragement to expand her repetoire. I hoped she would do it on her own, but she wants me to do it with her, and my heart sinks! I always get in a tangle - you've either got it or not, and I haven't!!

Sarah said...

well done on the invisible darn something that's beyond me, any attempt I make to repair something usually propels the wearer into scarecrow territory with patches and the like

Gosh you are so good. I never did manage to master the art of repair or darning. Cute little flowers, reminds my of Grannie squares that I USED to crochet for affie. Have a great day.

Darn, I couldn't see one hole! LOL

Bluefairy4U said...

Morning Jo, couldn't see your repair so must have done a fantastic job. I dropped my pokey tool once it cut through my trousers and into my leg ouch, had a nice spot there for weeks. Couldn't believe it could put a hole in trousers and cut me. Love your little flowers. Have fun. Jo.xxxNo.27

Spyder said...

I can't sew for toffee....maybe chocolate! I'd hate to try tho' it still remind me of school and, 'that girl there!! didn't your mother teach you anything?' Happy WOYWW ((Lyn)) #40

butlersabroad said...

That invisible darn is an amazing thing.... is it a bit like The Emperors New Clothes?? Sounds like you had a great time out at the theatre.

The cat on the record player is the picture I use on the Trimcraft forum, he is cute isn't he...my cat, Frog, would probably do that , if we had a record player! We had a treadmill thingy once she got on...Hubby was really mean and made it go fast!

Cardarian said...

Well we didn't see the curtains but I guess we have to believe you did them - glad you enjoyed the evening out with sis! She was busy doing uniforms so you had to take over the curtains - you two are a wonderful team!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, I am in awe of your sewing skills. Those curtains sound formidable. And I loved your invisible repair. Couldn't see a thing. And I'm glad to see your latest crochet project, too. Guess I should say I'm #2.

Anneliese said...

Oh to be able to sew at all .. never mind brilliantly :D ... sounds like you had a fab night out & after curtains like that I think you probably deserved it lol :D x

I'm impressed about the curtains. That's a lot of fabric! And it's good to know I'm not the only graceful one in the bunch :D. Good repair job though! TFS (75)

Julia Dunnit said...

See, I can use the invisible thingy, but the trouser would have sat on the to do pile for so long. I really need you and Wipso to donate genes!! We had a fab night at a similar 'thing' not long ago - honestly,we were hoarse from joining in and shouting along.
