|Not really my room, but mine looks just as bare|
Yada Yada Yada……..
Eventually, on Friday another a man arrived. He put in a new BOX and connected the red wire to the blue wire and removed the green wire – waved a magic wand – and thankfully everything is working.
So this is my excuse for not sewing or blogging this week – no sewing room and no internet. I’ve been managing to read a few blogs during the week at work but that’s it and I think I am in withdrawal. AHHHHHH.
Today I unpacked everything again and it was a chance to sort through and tidy. All those scraps that are too small to make anything with went to recycling and I folded the stash, put pins in their boxes, filed away all the patterns that seem to materialise all on their own, found the individual pattern pieces that escape when my back is turned and put them in their rightful envelopes. So this evening all is well with the world.
In lieu of lack of sewing – this is a sewing blog after all – I thought I’d metaphorically run around for you and bring back some good news. So here are the connections you should check out:
The oft ignored and definitely in the minority but extraordinary men of the sewing blogs: they put me to shame! there’s not that many of them but the design and work they produce more than makes up for sheer numbers.
|Don makes the most amazing clothes and amazing accessorising to boot.|
|Jeans at TaylorTailor: and fabulous selvedge denim fabric.|
|Just right boys’ gear by Jason|
There’s not much going to coming out of my sewing room for a few weeks as I get wound up again after my forced respite. I’ve purchased some patterns and more fabric, so I’m looking forward to receiving these in the post soon. And if you haven’t guessed yet from the links above – it includes denim!
As part of my tidy up and clear out I came across some patterns that I don’t think I’ll ever make, so be prepared for a GIVEAWAY soon too.
Thanks for your patience and for reading. Ruth
