Thank you all so much for the comments on yesterday’s post. Such a collection of wit and wisdom. I feel very privileged.
It saddens me, however, to reveal that certain elements from the lunatic fringe exploited this healthy debate to secrete sinister messages elsewhere. Whilst we were all merrily chatting about our bodies, two people left a comment on my earlier post on hand sewing. I can’t actually say their words out loud (they’d stick in my gullet) so I’ll just copy and paste and you can read for yourself:
From Sharon Sews:
I hate it [hand sewing]. I hate it. I hate it. Whew, that feels good to admit it publicly. That doesn’t mean I don’t do it when necessary, it’s just not my favorite part of sewing. Now, can we talk ironing? I absolutely *adore* ironing!
From Clever Blonde:
I love ironing too, my hubby and I used to race each other to do it, now I get it all.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? I hate ironing. It’s a standing joke that my favourite hobby includes having the iron and ironing board constantly to hand. I know it’s important to press whilst sewing, but jeez – I hate ironing as a domestic task. It makes me feel down trodden, it’s boring and never-ending and just like … why? Why?! WHY!!!
Enough. You’re probably going to tell me how much you adore this task, aren’t you? Or are you as well-balanced as me and swear at the iron every time you pass it?
STOP PRESS! Another Pattern Pyramid giveaway has gone live over at Sew Brunswick. She has some excellent patterns still available for a winner. I’m so pleased to see parcels arriving already in Australia.
Plus, don’t forget – you have until midnight tonight to share a make for the WIP Pitch.
