No work today!

I decided to use one of my days of annual leave today... I'm spending the day sewing!  What an indulgence...

I just wanted to post about what I made on Saturday, then I'm going to get sewing and will post again later or tomorrow.

On Saturday I had some birthday cards to make.  They were for 2 people who don't know each other so I made the cards the same, then two extras:

I also did some work on my crewel embroidery for the Weekly Stitch Along.  I don't hate it as much as I did!!

Right, I'm off to fight with my sewing pattern now.  I'm making the bag from Sew! for my Craft Book Challenge and the instructions are appalling!  I can barely understand them and so am mainly figuring it out for myself... slow going.

Ugh! I hate patterns with instructions that you can't understand! What are they thinking? I love your cards! Homemade cards are so special! Enjoy your sew day! I have to do the grocery store and tidy up....but I plan on sewing Tuesday!
