So you own a sewing machine, well I am fortunate to own two, BUT that does not automatically mean that all I do all day is make frocks and hem trousers! Twice this week it has been suggested that I would be good at doing such things - Well, yes, I can follow a pattern and produce an outfit, I 've made a few for the children so why does it make me cross? I have explained to people, when they ask what I do, that it is a City and Guild Stitched Textiles course - this obviously means I stitch textiles together to make frocks! NO! Sometimes there is no fabric involved, as in this current module where I am making paper.
Do any of you out there in Blog Land get the same assumptions?
And no I shall't be doing any alterations as there is a very good shop up the road where two lovely well trained seamstresses can do it much more professionally than I - and can they make paper that can be made into something interesting? Probably!!! :D
Rant over, going for a lie down in a dark room with my Janome to calm down!
