Making jewellery is hard. I've been trying to make a necklace tonight from a kit I won in a giveaway on Talking Beads blog. Easy peasy I thought but its actually harder than I thought. I thinks its me though rather than the kit. I just have absolutely zero patience so trying to get small beads to sit right was never going to be easy for me. I've decided to put it on hold until tomorrow and then have another try. It always seems to take me a while with new sewing patterns too. I have to reread them about 100 times before it finally sinks into my brain what I need to do - thats baby brain for you! Will keep you posted.
Check out this gorgeous dress from Sugarmouse.
She spotted the 'mod' dress I made from a Whole Grain Baby pattern on my blog and ordered the pattern for her little girl. Look at how fab it looks. I love the flowers on the yoke and will be borrowing (stealing!) that idea for the next one I make. There are more gorgeous photos on her blog.
I've just distributed the first copies of 'We need to talk about Kevin' to my reading group. We're hoping to meet in about 6 weeks (I know its ages away but we've all got small children) so if any of you fancy reading it too it would be really interesting to get comments from you. A kind of virtual on line reading group!
I'm going to do another giveaway soon so watch this space......
