Duh...! I know I'm probably the last person (as usual!) to do this, but this weekend I did a spot of embellishing with lace - and this time it was not on my tea towels but my cheap supermarket T shirts. This simple act (why haven't I thought to do this sooner? And it only cost a few pence.) has brought me great satisfaction, especially as I used the stretch stitch facility on my machine for the first time) and I proudly wore the first of 2 customized T shirts yesterday.
And did anyone notice? Er, no! But that hasn't stopped me now checking all my T shirts for lace or ribbon potential. Now, a little ruffle here and there does wonders for one's cheerfulness
