…..what I’ve been doing for the last two days.
I wanted to be quilting Lime Fizz or Zigzag, or even getting as far as basting them, or making Katy’s block for Stitch Tease, or sending out the packages for the Sew Euro-bee-an bee….
Have I even touched any of these?
NO I HAVE NOT!
For the last two days I have been sewing Little Red Riding Hood capes in horrible shiny, slippery fabric. Yes you’ve guessed it. The ballet teacher got me, or rather she got my daughter and now I have a stack of capes to make. As my daughter is about to turn 18 and she’s been doing ballet since she was 4, I have been here before as you can imagine. In the past I have made lamb costumes, witch costumes, jumping jack costumes, spent 4 months sewing sequins on fish head costumes, been stage manager and done a whole lot of other stuff that I have tried hard to forget and put behind me. Now I’m spending beautiful sunny days sewing red,slippery capes.
When I tell you that these will be worn for 5 minutes or so for all of two performances, you can see my frustration.
This is the end though. When these are done, that’s it! FOREVER!!!!
It’s such a waste of time and effort though….
On a happy note I shall leave you with a photo of my agapanthus blossoms. Possibly my very favourite flower and I grew these from bulbs and it’s the first year they have flowered. They bring back lots of happy memories of the years I lived in California. There they are decidedly two a’ penny, here they’re a little more special!
