past the finish line….
While most of the district has been involved in V8 fever with the V8 supercars battling it out in Townsville this weekend, photo courtesy of http://www.v8supercars.com.au/ I’ve been battling it out on my sewing machine this week, working on one of my long-standing UFO’s that I just kept postponing for fear of messing up. (do you do that too….or is it just a ‘me’ thing???) Finally, finally, finally……this li’l baby has made it past the finish line……. It’s my Market Baguette Bag…a Cinderberry Stitches design by Natalie Lymer and I just love it! I made a couple of modifications…..magnetic clasps instead of the ties, as I know how frustrated I would become if I had to tie and untie them every time I went into my bag….and they work a treat! And I also stitched some vertical ‘fold’ lines into the sides, so they folded inwards rather than gaped out as I carried it around. these little birdies are just so ‘tweet’!!!!! It’s now my ‘go to’ bag when I hit the shops…..and I continue to ask myself…….why oh why did it take me soooo long to finish it!?! Off to look for more of those ‘scary’ UFOs to get to the finish line!!! How about you????? Sugary hugs :O)
