After a couple of hours I had sewn down the curves on my triangles.
They looked pretty good, until I realised,
that I had forgotten the extra triangles on the corners,
At which point my sewing machine made a few weird crunchy sounds, which had an awful lot to do with the fact that I was using invisible thread on both the bobbin and the reel. Apparently your not meant to do that,
and my machine was filthy as I have just finished a large project for my Mum. I decided to strip it and clean it. I am woman, have screwdriver, can travel.
And soon it looked all shiny new again. Tomorrow I am going to change the needle – listens to ooh’s and ash’s from the crowd. (your meant to change your needle after every eight hours sewing!)
And this was the muck I collected. If only housework was so enjoyable and simple.
