piles upon piles of paper & too much hot air

slipper repair job: guess which rose got re-glued

The sewing table, that was neat as a pin & ready for work, is now piled high with half a dozen projects to be done quickly. Drat.

Remember the Fall hat re-do?  Weather’s been so dodgy I haven’t known when or whether to re-do, and said hat’s now looking dodgier than the weather.  Which I think is really just the quadri-annual (made it up – means every 4 years) burst of political hot air rather than climate change.  😉

Did manage a repair job last night, tho’.  My favorite summer slippers last came out of the wash with a rose reduced to a long strip of fabric instead of nicely curled & glued to its’ base.

Inspired by the Singer Sewing Book I’d been thinking I needed to get an upholstery needle to do the mend.  But it was too hot yesterday, and I remembered some Fabri-Tac sitting in a drawer.  I’d not used it – have any of you?  The piece seemed to curl back into position perfectly, and am wearing the slippers today.  Yeah!  One repair job done!

Now to get past those pesky projects and into those yummy fabrics I’ve been dreaming about for weeeeks!
