the truth

There has been very little crafting around here this weekend.
I had planned to sew, instead I went with the unexpectedly (well, for me anyway - but I hadn't checked the forecast, so maybe everyone else was ready) cooler weather -porridge for breakfast and some knitting. I finished three more squares for my patchwork blanky (I think that gives me 27 out of 48 or something...), and watched most of the first season of Buffy. (ahhh I miss Buffy)

I do have some fabric ready to cut out to make another bag, but the tutorial I'm following says I need 'stiff fusible interfacing' (?) which I was thinking might not be mandatory but then I have a read around and it looks like it's pretty much the bag norm. I didn't want to jump in do it without and then get suboptimal results and be wishing I had used it, so the plan is to pick some up this week. Of course, the truth is that what is more likely is that I'll forget to look for it, wait maybe a week then say something like 'interfacing schminterfacing', throw caution to the wind, go ahead without, and then probably wish I had waited after all...

  1. That fabric looks so nice. Cannot wait to see it finished up, and the blue bag looks great too. Running for the bus, well that is just a pain isnt it. Worse if it is raining as well.
