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?
