Yesterday was busy ! First another contact lens appointment at the Opticians where they gave me new lenses to try out, paid bills , picked up my Coach tickets for travel to and from the Airport, then the shop where I normally go to didn't have the Mineral Powder I use -so on to the next one, where I didn't have any luck either. I was finally lucky at the third store.
Then home, got some work done and finally got out my sewing machine. 3 cats are not good for any sofa cushions -they do like to dig their claws in , so I wanted to quickly stitch up a new pair.... oh no! Machine not playing and finally the needle broke off. Damn ! I just could not be bothered to carry on after that, so I went on FB after going up to my room and getting comfy on the bed, chatted via pm a little with Reggie's sister, then the man himself was home from work and I was laughing about stories of pranks they used to play in the past.Jeeeze...compared to what that lot has been up to in the good 'ole days I am an angel and have led a very sheltered life! No , I'm not going into details otherwise I have parents complaining to me for giving their youths bad ideas if they happen to come across this post,lol. I leave it to Reggie to pass that sort of stuff on if he wants to corrupt children :)
This morning I tackled the sewing machine... took it apart , gave it a good clean , a new needle in ...and voila , the thing works again. So I finally finished the cushion covers. It's an antique white colour with a similar pattern as the sofa, quite simple.
Kyra wrote on one of my last posts : Good idea to catch a good night
sleep in the airporthotel. The travel is already long enough! Can you
imagine it's already so near? Must be a real great feeling!
Have a lovely weekend
it was the best and safest way to get a room at the Airport, I could
have slept at a friend's, but the thought of having to change trains and
on the underground at six in the morning put me off the idea.I have
been counting the days (still am !) and I'm glad the time is going so
quick. As for a great feeling ... the greatest feeling will be be when
I'm finally there.
But I have uploaded the first part of this new kit as freebie for you. I'm very slowly getting back into designing in the moment. Do you think I can find how to put in onto the freebie page since Blogger changed everything? Nope ... so TFS , it's going on here !
Have fun with the first part , I will still be adding more to this ...
