If you’ve ever been curious about the most important man in my life (the one who fuels my sewing addiction aka The Man Outside Sainsburys) here he is! I screwed up my courage and asked for a photograph. So now you know who to look out for, should you be visiting. If you’re a stranger to Walthamstow, it’s worth knowing that the market is Europe’s longest. You have to take quite a stroll to find this guy, but it’s soooo worth it. Look how Ella adores him! She recognises a purveyor of fine fabric when she meets one.
I didn’t have time to hang around and chat, though. Today has been mainly sewing with pink crepe. Apart from when I had to step away, too tired to think straight and convinced all my hard work needed to be thrown in the bin. Always best to take a walk in the sunshine, when that sewing mood descends.
Do you battle creative demons, telling you you’re a failure? Personally, I think self doubt is all part of the process. It’s just knowing how to manage it. Any tips?
