All this talk of budget plans set me thinking,
it's time I balanced my books...
I wondered whether I could make an affordable trinket
in less than 30 minutes to achieve a minimum wage.
I needed a time and motion study
so I timed myself in motion.
It wasn't pretty.
I had tangles, knots and bad words everywhere.
These passed the test...
and these failed...
|felt too long|
It seems I must stitch faster,
and stuff smarter
if I want to stay in the race.
But I'm not going to race because crafting keeps me sane
and that's priceless.
I wonder if Mr Osborne likes Jammy Dodgers?
I promised Hettie some thrifty tips.
I can't save the planet
but this won't cost the earth...
1. Take a flask for a crafty cuppa on the go
to avoid the cafe culture rip offs.
2. Share a tea bag, two full mugs from one bag is very acceptable
especially if you are an unbalanced pair (one strong, one weak!)
3. Divide and conquer a family size pack of biscuits.
Foil wrap a couple or more for a packed lunch or picnic,
far cheaper than a Penguin.
Shall I put the kettle on?
Help yourself to a biscuit...
Does anyone else remember the Chocolate Garibaldi
or was that just a fantasy?
Crafty ways make crafty cuppas.
