Sometimes my ability to waste time on something astounds even my low expectations of myself. I should know better than to choose colours on a dull poor-lighting day as this photo will definitely show...
Do you see what I did? The green on the right does NOT in any way blend even remotely with the embroidered part on the left. And before you make any comments that ALL greens go together OR that it's the inside of the pouch and therefore won't show - it hurts my eyes. So there will be some frogging happening here at Chez Magpie today.
However, on the good side, I did finish the embroidery for the front...
The lighting is much better today so hopefully the re-do of the 'innards' will be more pleasing to the eye! Never let it be said that your Magpie is afraid to show you her mistakes.
- And while you're at that site have a peek at some of the other brilliant ideas she has for using Blue Dawn soap (HERE). We use it all the time for pre-treating grease spots on clothing....works like a charm and SO much cheaper than products made commercially for that purpose. (no affiliation with either the site OR with Blue Dawn - just a happy user).
- There's a really sweet pincushion tutorial HERE.
- If you like to crochet perhaps you might enjoy making THIS.
Today's quote..."The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much that you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people"
