Show and Tell Monday

A new week is here, my last one was a bit hit and miss, started off well achieved a lot, then brought down to earth with a bump or should I say bug. Should have known after all the frenetic work I was doing last week. With all the resting finished off the wedding sampler, framed on Sunday, wrapped and ready to go.

Looks a simple design, I thought, but a lot of woman hours went into it. Must be mad but starting another design now for a birthday gift in October, this time to be made into a cushion.

Whilst I was ill watched a good film 'Wild Child' reminded me of my heady days at school, just as mad come to think of it, in fact very similar!!!!

Made another glasses case this pm, I am on a roll again! Will post off tomorrow.

Check out all the other Pink blogs with tales and makes of the week.
