Making Life Difficult for Myself!

My return to work on Wednesday has involved many hours on this laptop, doing stuff nowhere near as fun as blogging!

But I’ve worked hard and thought I’d reward myself with some fun sewing!

I’m making a sewing machine cover for ‘Hector’ (my daughter’s sewing machine) and it’s all been going swimmingly, despite the nightmare ‘custom measuring to fit’ maths!

That is, until I had the bright idea of inserting an elasticated pocket on the side to store the foot pedal.

Who would have thought this unassuming little piece of (***** insert your choice of word here!) elastic could cause so much trouble!

In my defence, I had spent 5.5 hours writing a new course I start teaching next week (with lots of maths!), I was tired and it was late!

But I think I’ve cracked it and just as soon as I get the rest of it finished, I’ll give you the full reveal.

Off now to rest my puny brain!!
