Ironing Casualty & Productive Weekend

Ironing/Pressing Casualty

I completely forgot to post this pic a few weeks back - I had my first non-human ironing casuality. (and the human casualty is always my left index finger, in the form of a steam burn, I never learn!) I'm in two minds as to whether I should buy a replacement, or make one myself. Think I'll buy, and spend my making time on things I enjoy. ;-) Oh - and if this every happens to you - don't inhale the smoke! That stuff is seriously toxic!

Productive Weekend

Simon has been away skiing at Turoa this weekend, so I've had the place to myself since about 3 o'clock on Friday. Well, me and the cats. They're great company excpet when they want to talk at 5 in the morning or when they want to snuggle with me when I'm trying to sew. Anyway, that's not what I'm here for - but it is a great illustration of how distracting the puddys are!

So, aside from finally getting on top of the enormous pile of dishes, and a touch of tidying and a smattering of cooking, I've also managed to finish 2 more bags. One is another Christmas present for the twins, well, for one of them, and the other is a gorgeous little bag-ette (like the one in my most recent post) but in a lovely blue & red rose print fabric (another of my cousin's parting gifts - thanks Charlotte!). I haven't got pics yet!

Here's a sneak peak of the bag for one of the twins, until I get around to taking some better pics....

My label-attaching technique needs some practice, but I'm pleased with the look of this.

Ok, just took a quick snap of the other bag with my phone - as you can see, my lable attaching technique has not yet improved!

Right, I've been forgetting to eat all day, so I really must go and have some the chopped liver I made from my mother-in-laws recipe. Hope you've had a great weekend!
