Hankie Report

The news is good - I sewed without swearing! I tried to have fun and it worked for about 95% of the time. I spent a lot of time just sewing lines on the scraps of the shirt and that was great fun. Only a few moments of angst once I was on to the official item and it was a cruel choice of dark blue thread to really see what my seams were made of. Slugs and snails apparently! I find hard to believe my foot is dictating the speed, I'm sure the machine chooses but after Saturday's session I have hopes that one day it might give me some say in it - until then I think my next task will be something with seams on the safely on the inside out of sight.

Oh and no-one tell Bingo that it's a hankie and not a little mat made just big enough for all four paws to fit on. Okay?

Bingo is a cutie - it always amuses me how cats manage to claim such things as their own.

I'm glad to hear the sewing is going better!

I couldn't help laughing at Bingo - cats are amazing in that they have to be on the latest new surface. But sitting on a hankie? Incredible!! LOL

I can rarely knit without swearing - but sewing without swearing! That's an accomplishment.

Glad this time it was enjoyable for 95% of the time! That's progress and what it's all about right!

I just love the antics of kittens.

Ha, I am laughing at your kitty sitting on the hanky. What is it about cats that as soon as you put of a piece of anything down, be it blanket, coat, magazine, laptop...they need to go and sit on it!! I admire you for persevering; pretty soon those seams will be perfect.

Oh I have the same relationship with my sewing machine, I hope that one day it will also let me have some say in the process.
