Oops...

After seeing the lovely journal and notebook covers being made by Simone and Peg, I decided to have a go at a small notebook cover. It started out well with me deciding to put my name in one of Michelle's tags from her Stitchery Keepsakes pattern booklet.
I am in love with variegated thread and was happy with how it turned out.


But it was downhill from then. I cut fabric without double checking, I ironed the interfacing on the wrong way, broke 2 machine needles and when I finally thought I had it and was about to turn right side out, this is what I found.....







Yep, I had forgotten to sew on the tag. I think I can applique it on later, can I?????

On another note my son turns 30 today. Time goes so fast. Thankfully we all survived his wild teenage years. His Dad and I are so proud of his work and life achievements. Here's to the next 30.

Some days are like that & yes definately add the tag on later - it's a design feature or a personalisation - never an opps! Tracee xx
