Do you ever find there are little things that continually annoy you but that you somehow never get around to dealing with?
I don’t mean things that are really irritating or things that would take a lot of time, money or energy to deal with – just small things that are irksome and that you could fix in about 10 minutes but that that you never see to get around to?
When I first came back to sewing and started this blog the first thing I made (apart from a few blocks) was this little pin cushion based on Mary’s Tiny Cottage Tutorial at Molly Flanders.
At the time I was quite pleased with it but, every time I use it – which is a lot! – I find it really irritating because it ends up like this…
I don’t expect this happens to Mary, but my little house just will not stay upright!
I have been thinking I’ll make myself another one since forever but I always end up doing something else instead. Until now. I have finally stopped thinking about it and done it…
This is simply two hexies, left over from Lily’s Hex-a-long, stitched together, stuffed with scraps of wadding and decorated with a button. And the best thing is it’s flat. It doesn’t wobbly about, it can’t fall over, it has made sewing a delight!
In the background you can see a sneak peak of something else I’ve finished this week but I’m going to save that for TGIFF tomorrow.
What have you been thinking about this week?
