Well I did make a keyring yesterday for week 2 of T52MMMC but I'm really not happy with it. As my old textile teacher would have said "you must try harder". Started off so well, used some old offcuts of jeans (very green I know), one of my new buttons from Mushy Makes, ribbon from Patch and even recycled the keyring itself. Had a vision in my head of the finished product (note to self to live in reality more). However, when you have not used a sewing machine (yes I bought a new one of those and its lush) for such a long time I think more practice is required. So I will not be handing over the said keyring to my friend as I would be too embarrassed. So back to the drawing board!! I have included a pic of the keyring to give you proper crafters a giggle.
Not all was lost yesterday though. Attended my son's school summer fair which was fab. My daughter, plus her friend, son and of course me all enjoyed ourselves. Even managed to buy some crafty stuff for me to try out. Will keep you posted if any of the makes are semi-successful.
Twitter, yes I joined. Not sure I get it though. Think I need to keep at it and I may start to enjoy it. Any twittering/tweeting tips would be appreciated. As would some followers as I'm looking decidedly unloved on there he he.
The banana cake I made earlier in the week got me motivated to do more baking. Made a ginger cake (I know not appropriate for this time of year but hey ho) on Thursday and it is yum even if I do say so myself. Will be bigging up anything successful after the keyring disaster! Even had it for breakfast this morning. Bad example I know but it is the weekend.
I can see I'm rambling again! In one of those moods. But must get on. Have a fabulous weekend everyone. Just off to check Folksy before I log off lol.
