"I do so like green eggs and ham, thank you, thank you, Sam I am. "
A month anniversary since my last post! Somehow it seems much longer. I nearly wrote yesterday and how lucky you are that I didn't - such doldrums. A couple of weeks ago a bug laid me really flat leaving me grumpy and querulous and lots of other unattractive things (the beloved doesn't seem to have noticed though - is that what I am always like?!?) and it came to a peak yesterday morning when nothing I tried to do came to anything.
The outing I wanted to join was fully booked, the iron wouldn't clean after leaving filthy marks on my white fabric, the very easy pincushion pattern I wasn't following properly wasn't working how I wanted... you get the idea. By afternoon I was ready to throw phones and sewing machines and irons (and husbands) out the window.
A few deep breaths and a cup of tea and I remembered my spare iron from a Spotlight sale and worked out a way of salvaging the pincushion.
A few burnt fingers and I realised I needed a device to iron against when adding pellon to the pincushion interior in the salvage process.
A few google searches and I discovered I needed a ham - and could make it myself with materials to hand!
So with many thanks to Tilly and Kristiann, and Vinnies for a tucked away gorgeous shop sample of some Sanderson linen/cotton fabric, I got sewing.
While making a ham why not make a sausage too!
Wonderful how a small achievement can lift the mood and sweep the grumbles away
and the pincushion is back on track.
Have a lovely week.
