So yesterday ended with compounded aggro and upset; my computer is on the blink again, sadly some undeserving people are on the blink too and a bit of school trip wrangling had been chucked in for good measure. Anyhow I thought today would be better!
After more fun and games at school, I got on with prepping some EPP, all ready for a day sitting in the sun...
... and it was cloudy ALL day! Still I suppose I am now prepared for when it is needed. Every cloud and all that!
So I thought I would jump into my Patchwork Please! and make the lovely Retro Pencil Case as I was stuck indoors.
Only I just raced ahead, in my merry way, thought I'd spotted a cutting typo, kept going and then realised too late that there was no typo and I was just an utter berk!
The mood I was then in, I figured the little hand stitching was likely to end in tears, so opted for machining contrasting thread, and then utterly hated it! This is the pre-unpicked panel...
I did not paper piece the main pencil panel, and then went ahead and did not use the template for joining the pencil ends - so both panels have ended up wider than they should. I have looked at it for so long that I see nothing but faults now. Poop.
Well I have proceeded to unpick, re-cut and soldiered on, but more of that when I have calmed down a bit, promise.
So back to the laptop horrors - I will be checking my emails on my iPad or hubby's computer, but via webmail, which I totally hate. Using Mail seems to send my MacBook into a spin, so I will not be replying for a bit; if I spot anything more urgent than comments, I will try to get back to you. Also I will be reading blogposts, but likewise not commenting much, sorry chaps. I am pre-writing a couple of posts now, whilst the going is good.
I am hoping everything will be resolved by the weekend, for now, I think an evening of mindless TV, and endless cups of tea is in order xxx
