I had such a day of sewing planned :)
First I finished my 'Valentine' cushion for our latest Crafty Challenge - just 11 days late!!!! Poor Lucy had done her beautiful cushion in time for the big day and was waiting for her crubbish imaginary friend to get her crafting a**e in gear!
Then I set to cutting out a Bunster for my Bunny Hop Swap partner Est. All cut out and ready to sew I settled in front of my lovely baby and saw this:
Notice, if you will, the distinct lack of lumination on my baby's face.
We tried testing her pluggage, swapping her fuse and all to no avail.
Poor new baby is sick.
I am bereft :(
I phoned the man who sold her to me and he has never encountered this problem before :(
I need to send her back to be looked at :( :( :(
I'm awaiting a reply to an email enquiring over who is expected to pay for the postage i.e. not me please :(
Then baby will be going to hostipul :(
Therefore, I had to dig her big sister out of the loft. She's a simple soul but, bless her heart, did not hold it against me that her position as No.1. Sewing Machine in The House of Moog had been usurped by a prettier, quieter and more sophisticated version.
In fact, she seems to be enjoying her airing and has been busy sewing a something for our next challenge (and coincidentally for my nephew's birthday) and a certain Bunster :]
Sneaky peak no.1. - crafty challenge 7/ nephew's birthday present:
a v v pretty bunster :)
Technical glitches aside it has been lovely to get some sewing done again.
I've been feeling much better today - having got over the fact that I woke at 3.15am with awful sinus pain, got up at 5am, took Sudafed, went back to bed and woke again at 6am - marvellous ;)
It seems I inadvertantly did, in fact, catch MAN FLU!!!! Really really.
I must have 'cause Moogsdad has had to take the day off work with the very same ailment.
Only much much worse of course ;)
I even had to take the Monster to football training tonight as Moogsdad was far too ill - ahem.....
I managed to squeeze a quick trip to the local Co-op in and found this magazine. It accidentally fell into my basket with a bottle of Fair Trade red vino plonko - see...feeling better :)
Look at him:
...and he's teeny tiny - just 6 inches high!! I have to make one!!!
Then there's this lovely lady:
It really would be rude not to, wouldn't it?
I'm now off to plug my poorly sick baby in one more time, just in case she was just being naughty, before I give in and pack her up ready to go to the Sewing Machine Doctor :(
In case you'd missed it we have at last (due to me being crubbish) updated over here!!!!
I shall now try to play catch up on the 250 blog posts screaming at me in Google Reader!!!! May need that wine right now :)
p.s. for believers in conspiracy theories - the machines are taking over - the stupid gappage on this post is nowt to do with me - it's Blogger playing Silly Bloggers again and there's nowt I can do to change it! D'yer think baby has been infiltrated?
