A pinny

After being a WIP for what seems like months*, I finished my Clothkit pinny today! After successfully negotiating button holes, I'd been having palpitations about hems for a good couple of weeks, but finally just got on with it and did it today after lunch. Once that was over and done with, all that was left was sewing the buttons on. And I already KNOW I can do that.

So here it is. Finished! And hanging on our mulberry tree.

Yes, I'm feeling rather chuffed! You'd think that feeling warm and fuzzy would be enough to motivate me to work faster. Maybe next time?

And an added bonus: As I was taking the pictures, I realised there was some ripe mulberries on the tree, so I picked them before the birds. For a change. Yum!

*Not quite - I just checked and I started it on 28th September. This blogging thing can actually keep me accountable!
