Extreme Sewing

So I was reading Lisa Lam of U-Handbag's blog and her latest giveaway is fantastic! She's giving away a brand new Janome sewing machine and some other sewing goodies. But there's a twist: To enter all you have to do is take a picture of some extreme sewing!

I've been thinking for about a week now about where to go to take these pictures and have had some funny ideas - some not so doable though! There are a few very cool ones in Lisa's Extreme Sewing Flickr Group. They're worth taking a look at - just follow the links to my flickr account on the right.

So I bribed the BF with several cups of tea and a chocolate yule log to brave the freezing weather and come take pictures of me sewing in strange places! What else would you want to do with your Sunday afternoon?

We crossed the border into Donegal and down to the nearest beach. You can imagine the sort of looks we were getting from passers by carrying a sewing machine and a lap tray over the sand dunes. But it was the most fun I've had in a long time.

We also stopped at a view point but due to the mist there wasn't much of a view. Plenty of frost though! So come on people, who else is gonna have a go?
