My day started with an hour of sewing before breakfast. Plenty of time, I thought, to construct and finish a bag! This has been a very special commission as a birthday present for a lady about to celebrate her 100th birthday. A lady of great style obviously!
Three hours later it was almost done... But not quite.
But it had to be put aside as we had a funeral to go to. A wonderful man from our village died suddenly a week ago. Well loved and well respected he was a real village character who will be missed. The church was packed. We were at his eightieth birthday party just six months ago, but he was active and busy until the day he died. Very sad but the way to go really, I suppose. Better than being ill or suffering.
It was then back home to pack up the car for the school Christmas market. Despite dropping the price to £5 I only sold one cat... And not much else. Just about covered the £10 for the stall. Wouldn't be so bad if it hadn't been for the woman who picked up and examined each cat and when her daughter asked if she could have one she replied "No, if we drag out the old sewing machine and get it working we can make one ourselves. And our machine does embroidery." I just smiled... Through gritted teeth!
And now I'm finally sitting down with a cuppa and I should be doing my Italian homework not blogging, as it's our last evening class of term. I always do my homework the afternoon of class... Just like when I was at school really!
