It seems like absolutely ages ago I started making some bunting for myself, I cut out the flags and then left them sitting unloved in my sewing bag for weeks, then I managed to find the time to sew the flags together. Then the double sided flags made their way back into the bag awaiting some binding.
So a few weeks ago, I decided I should just go and buy some binding and get it finished. I went for pink binding - of course - and found a spare hour to sew my flags onto the binding. Once it was done I couldn't believe how long I had dragged it our for, I mean just a simple string of bunting for myself, but for some reason I hadn't found the motivation to finish it. Don't you just hate that? When you've started a project and then it falls by the wayside. And it feels so good to actually complete something, to hold it in your hands, use it and display it as it was intended.
I knew I wanted to hang this along by my bed, so I chose colours that would go with my bedding (were talking floral here people!) the other day I had a little fiddle around with it, and I think it looks really pretty. I've used some of my favourite (and most precious) Tanya Whelan fabrics as I know I'll get to look at them and appreciate them everyday. I think it looks quite cute - what do you think?
I'm just glad I managed to finish it and get it on the wall. This is also one of the few sewing projects I've done lately, I just don't have that crazy sewing mojo I used to have, but I am enjoying making things on a smaller scale for myself and I am sure I will also be making for Christmas. I have seen something online which has really inspired me to sew again, so I am looking forward to starting a new project soon.
Do you have a project that you just can't seem to finish?
Maybe I should start a club for people with unfinished projects! I bet there is a lot of us.
