Meet Irina

By PaisleyJade - Monday, July 13, 2009

I haven't made softies for ages... this whole crochet addiction may have something to do with it, and my mending pile that puts me off making anything (because I know I should do the mending first!).

But today I actually FORCED myself to finish one I had started ages ago... and it actually felt really good to finish one of the many half-finished projects piling up on my sewing desk.

Mending is something that I have never done in the past (I always gave it to my mum), but now that I have a sewing machine I have started to do my own (like a good mother should). I must say - I can't believe how often the boys rip their boxer shorts, pyjamas and jeans!

Anyway, back to Irina... if you like here, she is awaiting adoption here or here.

And hopefully I will have some more softies finished soon (but that does depend on how many more ripped undies I am going to have to mend in the next week).
