Today I have been working on these card wallets. There will be a removable string at the top edge for carrying the wallet around the neck, and some more buttons - recycled from quilt shirts - on the tapes to pull the cards up. Something went wrong when I was cutting the bisquit box cardboard, and the middle wallet is too narrow for a credit card. Naturally I noticed it only after sewing everything together.
This disappointment called for a nice cup of tea and some light reading. The Hearty tea
looks like this:
There are tiny candy hearts in it, and summer berry flavours. I pampered myself with the 80-year-old teacup I have shown earlier here. I took my tea out, and because it was windy - it always seems to be nowadays - I chose my current book instead of the magazine. The Miracle at Speedy Motors, by Alexander McCall Smith. I don't like bush tea like Mma Ramotswe, but I like her a lot.
Last night when Mr. K came home and was closing the door, he called me to see and hear something we don't usually see.
I've always love hedgehogs, Ulla, but never seen one in person - and wasn't even aware they made sounds like that! Poor little baby, I hope mama finally made time for milk!ReplyDelete
Aww what a wonderful sight- the little hedgehog and her Mother. I have liked them ever since Miss Tiggywinkle and my father would bring them into the house.ReplyDelete
I'm a fan of Mma Ramotswe too. :-) What an unusual tea.
Good luck with the card wallets and more cloth bag making.
That's too bad about the wallet. I hate when I do things like that. I get so frustrated afterward and like you have to remove myself from sewing entirely.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the hedgehog pics - have seen two here this week! Need to get a picture next time!ReplyDelete
