busy sewing bee

I've had a busy working weekend with more numpties per square inch than even I could shake a stick at!

I've gotten out the sewing machine today and tackled the pattern I had in mind for making a doorstop for Tan Grey. It's not meant as a doorstop, but I think it will look cute nonetheless. I finally got some replacement fabric on Saturday while I slept (benefit of having a postie as a hubby :) ) as the last lot went missing in the Great Snow Bound Mail Snafu of Twenty Ten!  I do have another plan in mind, but I'd have to do the pattern myself and it being a new machine I wasn't very confident - there was a lot of swearing involved with the making of the tunica!

I felt, if not in sewing nirvana, at least a sense of oneness with my machine (is it weird to like the smell of machine oil?!) and once I had started I didn't stop!  I will update with the pattern when I've completed the task and sent it on its merry way.  Obviously I want Tan to be first to see it, but I have stuck in a sneaky preview teaser shot! :D

So instead of having just cut out the pattern, I'm at the 'fill with ballast' stage, but waiting on the exhubby who has a source of good quality plastic pellets which will allow for machine washing! :D  Enjoy your Sunday evening and the week ahead ... I'm sure I'll have more to throw at you ;D x
