Millennium hand and shrimp!
I am not in the happiest frame of mind. Once again I am spending a weekend stuffed up with hay fever. It’s not much fun and doesn’t make me feel like doing much. In saying that we have been out this morning to have coffee at Bambino Cafe and enjoy their selection of mags. T has taken Polly dog for a walk to give me the space to write.. not that I felt like doing this either but I haven’t blogged for three days now and must not get out of the habit.
I have been doing all sorts of crafty stuff this week, in the main I have been playing around with tee shirts. I do not suit high neck tee shirts and so, inspired by several clever women on the web, I took scissors in hand and whacked into the necklines. This took a surprising amount of bravery but once I had assured myself several times that said tee shirts were from charity shops and could easily be replaced if ruined, I set to.
Not liking the raw edges I have added new edges/collars with ribbon, ripped up silk scarves and scavenged linen from a pair of worn out trousers. It’s fun experimenting and so far successful. I still have a few to do yet though.. As you will be able to tell from the photos, I am from the rip, shit or bust school of sewing. Although they don’t look so good in the pics they do look good on. Or I think they do anyway…
