Fiffing and faffing



Keep calm, don't let the rotten weather get to you

 

or the fact that the lovely ceramic brooch my sister gave me has snapped again and is really not safe to wear


I thought Hmm ! what can I do with it then. 
So going back to my project "This Hour Of Mine" by The Linen Garden


I came up with the idea of making a wallhanging.
 I fiffed and faffed about with a bit of freestyle machine embroidery


added some handstitching and


that's as far as I've got.  You'll just have to wait while next week the end result.


See you over at Julia's place for a bit of desk hopping

  3. A wall hanging is a good idea and will probably get more visible time than a brooch. ANickoana #12

  4. Hi. I'm just grabbing a quick coffee in between sewing jobs and am catching up on some of my fav blogs. I've already finished the wedding dress this morning then removed the zips from two shirt pockets and shortened the sleeves on 5 men's shirts.....it's my busiest week for a while so mustn't complain.
    I rather like the look of the fiffing and faffing and will be watching with interest to see how it develops.
    Hugs,

  11. I'm sitting opposite Jan, using the same internet, and what happens when I click on your link? I get an April WOYWW post! Weirdywoo. Anyway, I like the machine embroidery and can genuinely say that I feel a bit smug that I've done less riffing and farming than yunthis week. Normally I would beat you in any competition!
