Tired legs....


I hope you're all having a fab weekend so far! I've been a busy gal so I completed a walk (9 miles long!) to raise money for breast cancer around Carsington Reservoir - the weather was fine for most of it, but at the end we got drenched (luckily we all had waterproofs on and saw the funny side!) My legs are starting to ache a little now but I've had a soak and now want to share with you my feeble attempt at sewing my own corsage (see previous post for an explanation!)

So with a little bit of help from my mum I managed to create a corsage - it's nothing fab but I thought I'd share it with you for a giggle more than anything!Fortunately it's saved by the centrepiece (courtesy of mum) which is actually a piece that's broken from a necklace.
As I was attempting to sew this I was thinking - you could do the same thing with ribbon and place a button in the middle. I think it could make a cute little embellishment!

Right then before I go just a couple of pics from our walk - notice the dry start and soggy finish LOL! It really was a fab day out and raised a super amount of money for breast cancer - roll on next year!

Hoping to find some time tomorrow to craft so off to rest now!
Thanks for stopping by!
