Scrap Challenge - Limping Along

It was bound to happen - full of enthusiasm, ever the optimist - but after only three weeks, I fell behind with the Samelia's Mum challenge.

I keep promising myself that I'm going to make an effort to try to make something each week - but inevitably, life gets in the way (more accurately - it's easier to pick up a bit of knitting than getting the sewing machine set up!).

So today I made an effort to find half an hour to sew something scrappy.  I chose the challenge from week 7 - a cord tidy.  Admittedly this is a very easy project and it took longer to get the sewing machine set up than it did to make the thing.

And what a useful little thing it turns out to be.

It's what we've been needing for some time now.

I feel I should make some more - because let's face it, there are lots of cords around that need to be tidier - but I suspect I won't get round to it.

This week's challenge is a lovely mini patchwork mat.  Now I do fancy a go at that - but oops! I just put the sewing machine away and packed that scrappy fabric bits bags into the store room.  Maybe tomorrow?

  1. Well done. Very pretty fabric. I'm half way through Week 8, but got home this afternoon to find my husband was doing DIY that involved switching all the power in the house off. Bit hard to sew with no power, so like you I reverted to knitting.


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
