I completed my first sewing machine project.  This little apron came out well I think.
I didn't have enough length to make the belt in one piece so improvised with the offcuts by doing acentrepiece and two ties each side) I lined it with cotton and am pleased with the fresh look .

After church yesterday my leg had become so painful I went and had an x-ray - it is infected not broken and I have antibiotics and have to keep it up to reduce swelling.

  It's times like these that you take a little look around and ask yourself ...'do I really need to be doing that?... 'can that wait'... hubby does loads of the cooking and most of the shopping so I am a bit spoilt already, but I will delegate to the boys a little and it will be good for them to do things for themselves, I am always rushing to do things first so they don't make a mess!  Got to stop that!

So a relaxing day reading crafting books, potting up my sweet peas and catching up on your blogs.  Enjoy the day we are in. xxx
