The only task I completed satisfactorily was the destruction of one Lindt bunny and a slight bloated, I think I had too much chocolate feeling. I managed that with exemplary perfection.
It is amazing how someone not in full time employment can fall prey to the I Hate Mondays syndrome.
I did manage a little sewing though, between reading emails, watching Bargain Hunt (I am not generally a day time telly sort of person) and eating that chocolate. I decided to go ahead with my tablerunner a bit more. So I sewed, and basted and then got out the perle cotton. This is the point that I lost the will to do anything, mostly because my needle threader - last seen in the hands of my eldest - has gone into that mysterious black hole of who knows where and I spent an hour trying to find it, unsuccessfully. By the time I gave up the hunt I was well and truly ready for that bunny.
So what little I have to show is this, a bit more border and one solitary snowflake. The first to fall around here this winter.
|I like the narrow touch of red,|
but when I put the idea out there in the swap it was a pretty even split between those who wanted it and those who didn't.
Obviously I chose to ignore those who didn't!
|I may still add a little more detail to this snowflake.|
Love the snowflake and the touch of red! Congratulations on demolishing the bunny ;o)ReplyDelete
I'm loving the look of your table runner. I'm already regretting not signing up for the swap :-/ Especially as in Brit Q swap and Goodie Bag swap my partners have not commented on a single thing that I've seen since sign ups!ReplyDelete
Oh, this tablerunner looks awesome. I love how there are no Christmas trees or just green and red colors, yet it's still a winter/ Christmas tablerunner. Great job!ReplyDelete
everyone is entitled to a day like this...lol. And I too love chocolate. Your runner looks lovelyReplyDelete
Cute! Love the red and aqua combination and the snowflake is an awesome touch!ReplyDelete
Let's face it, the bunny had to go! You couldn't let that wascally wabbit taunt you like that, could you?ReplyDelete
Besides if chocolate assists in the creation of such lovely items who are we to question?
Oh wow - that runner is beautiful. Love everything about it so far! Somehow I'd imagined your crocheted snowflakes (in blue) adorning the centre - I must have got muddled up reading your previous posts (not hard for me to do these days). Looks fabulous!ReplyDelete
I liked this post. Made me chortle. When you've had a partly cr*p day at work it is good to chortle. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Oh Susan, you started with such high hopes and aspirations! I love your tablerunner - it`s very sophis. and grownup and just what I want. Makes mine look like a Disney caricature but hey ho. Very envious of your snowflake and chilly autumn weather - still TOO HOT here!ReplyDelete
I love that you have had a slobby day......dishes can't speak!ReplyDelete
Love your tablerunner - how about soe tasteless diamontes sprinked on to your snowflake? I like a bit of vulgarity at Christmas...
If you managed to massacre an entire bunny I'd call the day a success!ReplyDelete
I'm in the "Way to go on the snowflake " camp. Nice job!
Yeah, well we won't mention how long I've had a few dishes sitting by the sink...ReplyDelete
Love the snowflake though, and that red
I love the table runner - inspired!ReplyDelete
Oh I think you did OK - and the snowflake looks lovely. I am still wearing flip flops, so please don't summon the real thing!ReplyDelete
Loving your table runner :-)ReplyDelete
You're so funny! I love that splash of red, and the snowflake is so gorgeous! What a talented, choccy loving lady you are! JxoReplyDelete
I really like what you're creating in your table runner. The fabrics are great together and the stitching just lovely. Great job!ReplyDelete
I am truly in love with your runner. My fabric finally came in the mail today so maybe tomorrow I can get to it. I agree with Sheila in that the snowflakes would be A.MAZ.ING with a little sparkle.ReplyDelete
I don't think it needs more sparkle - you have given it with that great red accent border! This one's a winner and will be the envy of every partner! If it were mine I wouldn't want to let it go!ReplyDelete
I dream of those days - sometimes a can't be arsed day is incredibly satisfying and you need them to counter the really productive ones! Loving the snowflake :)ReplyDelete
Heheh that sounds like my everyday. I must have totally missed the conversation about the red sashing whoops, but it looks really great! LOVE the snowflake also! Can't wait to see who is so lucky. XxReplyDelete
Beautiful stitching Susan and I love the red border on the runner too!ReplyDelete
ok, let's put things into perspective here, the bunny's days were numbered! End of! And any monday was going to be a 'can't be arsed' day after such a perfect Sunday! Congrats on getting the dishes sorted! The runner's not bad too! lolReplyDelete
I'm having a can't be arsed week - unfortunately I still have to go to work :0(ReplyDelete
I think the red border is perfect and I love the Bliss fabric I can see in the runner! It's going to look fab!
love the honesty of your post!!!! I frequently can't be arsed doing the breakfast dishes or the school drop off /pick up so totally understand where you are coming from!!! Some days are just like that aren't they? Glad the bunny helped though. Chocolate helps everything doesn't it? Did you do your snowflake on the machine or by hand ? love this colour combo. xReplyDelete
