Repeat later in the day, still no change.
My embroidery machine arrived, thank you Peg, but I could not summon up the interest to open it.
Tuesday the pressure eased a bit, kept on with the drops and had a check up, wonderful, an infection, take pills and feel nauseous.,
To take my mind off it I decided to try my hand at making a circular skirt, with side seam pockets. It is a bit loose but a wearable toile, I need a full petticoat though.
As you can see it is a hipster on my model, I managed a decent zipper insertion and a hook and eye fastening. The waist is simply finished with a facing for a smooth appearance. If anybody is curious about the fabric, it started life as a duvet cover from Asda, I bought it ages ago and picked up the wrong size so never used it.
There is so much fabric that I have an edge to edge jacket nearly finished and aim to make a simple sleeveless top.
And now to the utter failure.
Yesterday I made up the third Snapshot Quilt block, I cut it all out last month and promptly forgot it.
At the last bit of assembly I realised that not only was a piece missing and I had run out of the white on white, but the kettle handle was crooked and there were some points that did not match at all. Even worse, I did not like the colours or the star on the front. Woe is me.
I will pick some more fabric and remake this, the first will not be wasted, I will turn it into a cushion for Francesca, she is a tea aholic.
Today the surgery have decided that next Tuesday I must have my ears syringed, yeuk! I had it done once before and did not like it at all.
Today the pain has subsided but the tinnitus remains and I am almost deaf. I aim to get some sewing done later, Ben has to have a walk first. I would like to finish the little jacket, I am going to attempt to "bag line" it, I have watched a u tube tutorial and read a description so wish me luck. If it all works I will be making the "real thing" next week, using some of my bargain buys from the fabric guild. I dare not even look at their website at the moment.
Now it is time to walk, Ben is giving me the evil eye stare.
