It’s rare to get snow in London and because of the urban heat it’s even more rare for it to settle. So we all get a bit over-excited. As a Northerner who spent her childhood in the back of a car negotiating twists and turns like the Snake Pass, I always find it hilarious-slash-terrifying to watch London drivers try to cope with this stuff. They really don’t know what they’re doing – eek.
So a day to stay at home. Sadly, not sewing – writing deadlines are becoming pressing. But I can at least entertain myself by gazing occassionally at my new chalk pencil, which I proclaimed one of the best things I’ve ever bought!
There’s been quite a lot of chalk debate recently, first on my blog post here and then over at Stitch and Witter’s posts about Fabric Marking. On the back of recommendations, I ordered this Signet Colour Kreideminen-Set from Sew Direct (free postage!).
Look at all those colours and refills! There’s an ickle sharpener! The chalk makes a really good, accurate line. Thanks to the people who recommended this.
Okay, nose to the grindstone time. See you later!
