The Final Push

Sonata :
When you get stuck and the WIP won't progress , drastic measures are needed .

Get the house to yourself . Turn off the television and computer . Make a big pot of soothing Rooibos tea . And let that nice Anna Massey read "Wild Swans" to you .




The binding will go on first time with complete success and you'll feel calm , cool and collected ...... until you go through the ghastly process of putting photos of the quilt up on Etsy .

Not even Anna Massey can help with that .

Yes but... the quilt is creativity; the photo-posting is technology. And the two don't always mix well. I advise something stronger than tea for the technology bit.

Ah, but I'm sure the quilt is beautiful and will be well worth the wait. I like rachel's advice.

:o)

I agree with Rachel. I can't even operate the camera properly. I only found out last week that I could alter how many pixels were being utilised (or whatever it is they do). I'd not been firing on full. I only bought the blipping thing as it was supposed to be idiot proof...

I absolutely get your drift, but the only association I have with rooibos tea has everything to do with pre-labour, labour and post labour. I tend not to indulge on a voluntary basis these days...

(lovely bindery).

Dear S&S thank you so much for stopping by my neck of the woods. I realize now how you came by my site. You are part of Fridge Soup. How wonderful to meet you. Friko asked my question so I have my answer WIP. I am as old as dirt and still a WIP I keep hoping something about me gets better in the process but I think I am getting tired of working on it. Blessings Come again.

I love your hand writing! It's very attractive and feminine.

You might like to listen to Victoria Wood on her 'Victoria and Albert' cd. I nearly wet myself laughing every time I listen to it. Which might not be much use if you're trying to sew ...
