recently the delightful fluffy asked people what they are bad at.
i forgot to say i really suck big time at sewing. this can even be sewing a simple, simple thing.
just now i did princess a favour and sewed up the two gaps in the teddy bear she made at aftercare on monday. she is going on school camp next week and had the great idea of taking it, along with a message written on it from moi, saying love you, have a great time, etc. and then getting her friends to also sign it.
so, i sewed up the seams which had been left after she had shoved the stuffing in. this went well. see, i can do some things like this, and then it gives me confidence, so then i try something a little more complex, and get myself into a "situation."
then i thought i'd do her another favour. she's sewn on a button on the teddy's front (why are bears always boys?) and a bell somewhere near his belly. she said she wanted to make his nose, in a triangle, with brown thread. you know, like the traditional bears.
so i thought i'd do that for her and give her a surprise.
i couldn't fucking do it.
both times i got myself into such a knotty place that i had to cut the thread, swear, then try to get the tiny knots out where i'd sewn through the thread.
i'm so good at bad sewing.
ps why won't blogger load more than a couple of pics at a time? it's bothering me something awful.
