piles upon piles of paper & too much hot air

slipper repair job: guess which rose got re-glued
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!

and thanks for all you lovely folk who’ve liked this – can’t figure out why you’re not showing up here – everything’s checked & in its proper place… except your gravatars… must be a temporary hiccup on the system… gotta go back to work –

stash-building!

Stash!

Would you believe my fabric arrived by post today, and there’s not a loser in the bunch! Am so pleased…

Also delighted to be in stash-building mode again, after a long distance move that necessitated SEVERE stash-busting.  So sad… ;-(

[changed date of entry from when photo was taken (2008) to actual start of blog; point being stash-building is forever, but this blog started june 2012!)
