A Blog Entry From September 2008

October 14, 2010
While I have been feeling in a shitty mood, I decided to have a go at making something, instead of writing
blog entries full of negative crap…! Don't tell anyone My eye fell on the leather pouch/purse that my ex bought for me at a bike rally, and I thought it would be a good design for a reticule…so out came the stiff card and wadding, and some white poly/cotton to cover it.  I cut a small rectangular base piece and two (not quite) pear-shaped side pieces…these were covered with thin wadding then the poly/cotton, before covering them with red fabric and backing.  They were then sewn together and had a Chinese knot fastening added to the top. Not bad, though I say so myself…Wink
Today, I have been working on the ivory satin bag that will be sewn into the rigid outer part…sorry, but
I’m not very good at describing what I mean…Robert will have to take a picture of it for me…but the cameras battery is crap. Confused
OK, I think I have made Robert late for work Embarrassed…he had to plug the camera into the computer to be able to use it…but he has taken some pics…and I shall add one when he sends them over to me…and one of the finished item…in fact, that was probably a waste of his time, as I will have it finished by the time I get to add any pics…hmmm…! Disappointed

    Again, I apologise for the font colour…I have been trying to change the background colour to mauve like my old WLS blog, so that they will show up better, but nothing has happened so far.
    As I am new to this WP site, I am still learning what everthing does, so more tweaking will be needed.

      Colour changed!

      Anyway, this reticule is still not finished, but when I do finish it, I will post the photographic evidence.
