A tale of woe

today, see my waste-basket ( I forgot to put a placcy bag in before I started work - you know how it is). Anyway, there I was, putting my earrings in this morning, when woops, I fumbled and one tiny stud fell into this mess ! I did find it in the end, but it took a lot of sorting through all that muddle to retrieve it !






Ta-da ! One precious (to me) stud - one of the set I wear almost every day !














Note to self,  

Be more careful WHERE you are when fiddly things are involved !!!!

Now on to more sewing related stuff.
Today is link-up day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and while sorting through my bag of horror, known as scraps, I found a couple of orphans from way back - very rough and ready but I do like the colours together so shall tidy them up into a pot holder, they're not really accurate enough for anything fancy but I am constantly using pot holders in my kitchen and figure that you can't have too many.



I've also been making a few granny squares for the Siblings Together project here in UK - discovered, like several other people, that I really like making them. I may continue intermittantly with these, I have two that finished too small for the project but I can more easily make others that size rather than the prescribed one.
