When bad things happen to.................

good tealight holders.......

I tried taking the sticky tags off as gently as possible and it appears that the glass is painted and not colored through and through.  * big sigh*

Stay tuned to see how I turn this batch of "lemons" into "lemonade"

Heavy Chain Stitch

YYeeeaaahhhhhhhhh I got to sew a little bit. It has been too long since I took needle and thread to fabric and blogged. just gets to you sometimes.

I redid the elastic in a friend's dress, edged a fleece blankie and learned a new embroidery stitch.
All and all, not a bad week.

Heavy Chain Stitch and a little snark

As you can see, I still need a bit of practice, but all in all, not a bad first attempt  Hmmmmm what stitch shall I do next?
