We all get them, and yesterday was my day for one of those. I'll blame it on having snow for 3 consecutive Wednesday's
My plan was to get work bits and bobs sorted, then add some pretty fabric edging to a plain white towel - sounds simple huh? Not to be - I originally thought (as per the Quilting in No Time), note 'No Time' I would do 2 triangles - sew them together to make a square, and follow that sequence along the edge of the towel.
The sewing machine decided to throw a wobble, doing it by hand didn't work so I scrapped the triangles and the alternative was to do strips, then add ric-rac. Got the ruler (believe it or not I have problems drawing straight lines even with rulers) and of course couldn't even get that right. I thought I was a reasonably articulate person and can even do my times table, but me and rulers just don't go! By the end of the day and much faffing, I completed it. Something that could have been straightfoward took far too long for my liking!
Lastly, hubby who was working from home managed to spill a cup of tea all over my nicely made table runner - remember that one? Blast Blast and double Blast.
Today will be a far better day, I hope! Whilst sorting out some bits this morning, I came across 2 cards which I used to have pinned up on my message board - who remembers Malory Towers and The Magic Faraway Tree? They really had to be my most favourite books of all time.
