There are some days when everything just goes right. I sit down at my sewing machine or at my cutting table and everything pans out exactly how I want it to. Leaving me wondering how I managed to do that. And leaving me pretty sure that that was all a fluke.
And the reason that I'm pretty sure it's a fluke is because of weekends like this one. Weekends when everything, everything I do turns to crap!
I can honestly say that my best and closest friend this weekend has been my quick unpick. Seriously, we're now best buds. Because that little piece of plastic has been by my side constantly, holding my hand, only laughing at me quietly, when it thought I wasn't looking. Unlike my sewing machine, who laughed at me right out loud, to my very face, at every given opportunity. Bastard.
But on the bright side, I now know that I hate shirring, and that linen hates it almost as much as I do. Not to mention that toweling, organic or not, is a bugger to work with and looks lousy as bloomers. And oh so many more interesting and useful tidbits that I would have been very happy not to learn this weekend.
So thanks weekend. It's been fun. Lets do it again sometime, because, you know, I've got shed loads of time to just throw away.
