And Then There was Space

Do you want to know something?

Finishing this top has taken a lot longer than I thought it would. I suppose it was the precise spacing between each letter and word which made it harder. Something I've never done before.

You know me. Just wing it and see what happens.

Before I show the photo, I think the bottom row has got to be unpicked and re-sewn. Somehow the machine had a yummy I'm hungry moment. I don't think she likes doing strings cos she chewed that seam up.

So here we are

and I'm not sure about the exclamation mark either. I like the top half, but the bottom is too square.

Oh Clare, do shut up! You're striving for perfection which you know you just cannot do!

On a different topic, we went shopping yesterday.

Sewing machine shopping.

She hasn't come home yet, but when she does I'll make sure you are the first to see her.

More soon.

Seeing it in the last post without the exclamation mark and here with makes it obvious that here is best! It makes it more of a laughing emphasised exclamation than a murmured sentence. See?!!!
Made me think of my second best bloke friend, my TALL fiddler friend, Andrew Clermont. He was in Paris recently. He is on my FB friends, look him up, invite him down for a house concert and get all your friends together!
