A year ago today

I first started this blog! Hasn't that gone fast! I can't believe how much things change in a year. If I was a natually gorgeous looking person I would do that thing where you take a picture of yourself every day for a year and see the changes. Unfortunately I don't put makeup on every day and a photo without it isn't that attractive! Maybe I'll photograph Scott every day for a year! Problem is I'm sure I would forget!

I have spent much of the afternoon looking at bag patterns and cheap sewing machines. I don't know why as I cant afford one or have the space for one but I can wish! Maybe I could pick one up second hand somewhere... good old eBay you may be seeing me again sometime!

I blame Clare (hehe)! She's so talented with a sewing machine and I keep looking at all of her projects on Facebook which are so lovely! She had done all sorts of small projects (which suit me as we established in my last post!) like coin purses, keyrings, lavender 'owls' and all sorts of gadget cases! Her most recent delight is a lovely Lunchbox Bag which I am waiting to appear in her shop as I can imagine taking my packed lunch into work in that every day... In the new bag I intend on making sometime in the future. Were off to the Stitches Show tomorrow so maybe I can locate a pattern and some fabric and plan to do it over a weekend next time we are home. I saw a nice free pattern on the internet earlier but I would quite like it to have an inside zip really. Maybe I'll try and be clever and add one myself. Can't be that difficult right? I want it to be concealed so I'm sure something could be worked into the lining.

It's a shame that with being currently unemployed (or rather soon to be employed, that sounds better) also come severe lack of money... you can see it now, the second I have money to spend on these projects I'll have no time to do them!

And on that note, I have written FAR too may posts this month so I am now going to shut up! Bye!
