Back in the saddle

Warning: this post title is merely a shameless excuse to put up a pic of Paul Newman in Hud!

Now back to regular programming.

The sewing drought seems to be has been a long slow process though.
The curtains are coming together, one seam a day and as they are a 3 metre drop it means a lot of long boring straight sewing, and as the fabric is a bit slippery, every hem needs to be ironed and pinned (gasp pins!!!!) before sitting down to the machine.

I had exhausted every toy/game/puzzle in the house to keep Miss C occupied while I sew and then one day she asked if she could help. Finally my own sewing assistant hurrah! She is now very adept in pinning in a straight line but she does insist on picking out a different colour pin each time so she is not exactly helping make the job faster.

All going to plan the curtains should be up and hemmed by the end of next week (that’s relying on The Bloke getting the drill out however!).

Once that’s done I might just be able to get around to sewing some clothes!


  1. Glad to hear you're sewing again. Great picture!

  2. Good luck with your new assistant. :)
    Paul is hotness personified!
