I had a bit of a scare yesterday. With orders gathering momentum over the last couple of weeks or so, and the countdown for the well publicised 'Cyber Monday' next week, traditionally the most popular online shopping day of the year, I have been getting busier and busier in my little room. And then it happened. My sewing machine came to a standstill .. mid purse. Talk about timing!
Fortunately my local sewing machine centre is reasonably close by so I hastily got into the car and sped away, foot down, fully aware that the school run was beckoning. Thankfully, it was just the pedal that had given up and the centre had another to sell. If my machine had had to be grounded for repair, I just don't know what I would have done. Apart from cry, of course!
It's pretty much purse city in the house at the moment, so I can't blame the machine for its hissy fit. I'm just grateful there isn't an expensive bill to dig deep for.
I think that cashmere and Christmas (oops, did I just type that out loud?) go together, and that's what I've been dreaming up lately. Cashmere, coupled with vintage Liberty, together with a little antique embellishment equals perfection in my book.
What are you up to?
