Yesterday, I woke up and realised something: I needed to finish a project. I was sick of being ‘in progress’ and was craving the delicious sense of achievement that comes with crossing the finish line.
Since all my current projects are long (writing a new novel, rewriting an old one) and even knitting takes days (especially at my speed) I turned back to one of my first loves – sewing.
As luck would have it, my Mum gave me a Clothkits bunting kit on my birthday so I had everything to hand. Mixing and matching the yummy cotton fabrics, putting foot to pedal and ironing the bias binding put me in a blissful state and, a couple of hours later, the finished product was hanging proudly in my kitchen.
Sometimes you need creative instant gratification and machine sewing sure is fast. Happy sigh.
