Roses are Red

I am so sorry, I am late with the winner of the Rabbit Egg Cosy Giveaway. The main reason is I’m ripping out and replacing the lower bathroom, all the way back to removing and re-laying the subfloor so I get up each day, eat dust and try not to cry (I love doing things myself as it’s a great feeling  to learn and master new skills but boy, is this one steep learning curve! Thank goodness for the internet and if I could afford to pay someone to do it for me, I would.).Screenshot 2019-02-04 at 06.23.29The winner was comment 12, (Jan, I’ve emailed you directly for your address). Thanks, everyone that took time to say ‘hello’ and for all your lovely comments.RedRoseBroochAs I’m doing DIY during school hours, I have to hand sew in the afternoon and evenings (when I’m multi-tasking with Mum duties) and I was trying to get a new batch of double red rose brooches finished in time for Valentine’s Day.DSC_0050I’d normally be photo editing and updating social media at this time, hence the slip on blog writing etc.DSC_0035Then I remembered that I rarely sell to men/partners anyway….as in pretty much never….so I don’t think worrying about Valentine’s is really the right focus, I should be making more Linen Rabbit Egg Cosies as they have all gone!IMG_20170930_093804The plan is to keep going on the bathroom this week, then I’ll flip back to sewing during the day next week and get my evenings back for internet stuff. Maybe I’ll actually get on with the new tweed rose bags I started over 6 years ago…..maybe 🙂

  1. Hey Beth,
    your beautiful roses look divine, especially love the linen bags your doing, they remind me of the tudor rose! Congratulations to the egg cosy winner! They are lucky! I feel your pain on the DIY front, am also doing house work/ working and then decorating. Haven’t figured out how to do the flooring myself like you’ve done so very impressed you do it all yourself. Good luck with your bathroom renovation, if you have time you must take a pic for us to see! I love your house décor taste! It will be worth it in the end when its finished 🙂 Good luck with it all and hope you get more time for sewing soon, love Safxxx

  2. Very pretty flowers. Speaking as someone having bathroom problems which we are trying to fix ourselves, I hope it all goes well. x
