Spent a day this week choosing and playing with fabric. Two of the cushions can’t be pink and guess who has lots of pink fabric?! So I’ve been resourceful looking at the lining of the clothes to get fabric I can use. As usual being creative and concentrating on sewing helped to clear and calm my mind – it’s a relief to find some peace.
I also managed to fit in a visit to the Crafter’s Companion shop. I just went for a copy of the Sewing Inspired magazine but I ended up with another sewing magazine (because I liked a dress pattern that came with it) and new dressmaking scissors. Of course buying new scissors is totally justified as the poor cutting out of the boiled wool showed how inadequate my current scissors are (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!)
Think I’m going to have to put a self-imposed ban on me entering any fabric/sewing shops until I get paid at the end of the month 🙂
