It's oh so quiet... its oh so still... *hums Bjork song loudly*
At least sewing progress has been incredibly quiet and slow.
The Dandelion boy is just discovering words.
So we have entered that phase of toddlerhood where every time he utters a new word, we are all overwhelmingly impressed.
As a result he likes to practice talking all the time...
I mean all the time...
Especially at bed-time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Since I usually sew after the Dandelions are asleep, this has meant absolutely totally frustratingly no sewing time whatsoever *miserable mummy*.
The Dandelion girl has just discovered Wordles. That funny mess of words atop of this page is one such Wordle - aren't they cool? You just feed in lots of words and the programme creates a funky montage for you to play around with. I will definitely be using it every week to print off her spellings.
Inspired by all the framed purses being made recently, I placed an order with U-Handbag earlier this week. And yesterday I managed to (rather disastrously) sew up my first ever one.
I was completely pants at the gluing stage.
And managed to get the annoying stuff all over the outside of the frame and the fabric.
But after a lot of scraping and picking off that glue, I am really pleased with how it turned out.
They certainly are addictive these ickle framed purses.
I am already itching to make some more.
Happy sewing Sewistas.
Cheerio for today.
