Here we are at another round up of the week's smiles. Many thanks to those who joined in the fun last week.....I really do appreciate all the effort.
For those that read my blog on Wednesday you will know that it's been one of those week of trials for me....the repairs on my overlocker are now done but what was quoted to me as £89 ended up being £113!!! [another £50 and I could have bought a new machine!!] and several of my other machines seemed to have it in for me too....
- one refused to sew at one point
- kept breaking the thread
- I broke 2 needles while shortening a pair of jeans and
- it even chewed up the thread while I was winding a bobbin!!!
so I did contemplate hybernation at one point. 😁😁😁😁
It's for weeks like this that focussing on the smiles works like a tonic and I have lots to smile about....I'm alive for one 😀😀😀😀😀 So here's a few of my smiles so you can share them too...
Phoebe, Lulu, Sam and Lexi have swimming lessons and they seem to have brought back the rule to wear swimming caps. We used to have to wear them when I was a child and it really made me chuckle this week when they sent pics to me of them trying them out. I remember just how tricky it was to get them in place and as you can see it takes a little practise to get it right.
We really enjoyed watching the animal cameras on Spy in the Wild on BBC1 last night and had a good chuckle at Milly's interest too.
For those that saw the fabrics I was playing with on Wednesday I am sharing the, now finished cover I've made for my new diary. I really enjoyed creating the crazy patchwork and machine embroidered to quilt it before finishing the cover.....and of course I'm now smiling at it every time I use it.
I hope you've enjoyed my catch up of smiles and will leave me a little comment before linking your smiles too.
