Why is it that when you have a lot to do, time seems to whizz by in a blur and you get to the end of the day and think to yourself - what have I been doing all day?
I've realised that I may not tick off every box on my long list of things to do before the weekend. But I'm happy with what I have achieved and I'm sure no-one will notice if I haven't sewn up those few extra pencil cases.
Today I gave the fabric hearts I cut out yesterday a new life on some greeting cards and gift tags:
On the left are some felt heart ornaments I've been stitching. More colours to come!
And below is my afternoon project - button making. I didn't know it was possible to sustain an injury from this activity, but it is. I had to stop after about 30 or 40 buttons as my thumb was aching from pushing the button backs on. And later this evening, I went to stretch out my right arm and couldn't, I think I may have strained a muscle! I was eating icecream at the time, perhaps this was the universe trying to tell me something?
My favourite button is the little yellow bird near the centre, though the red singing bird is a close second!
