'The ladder of success is as short as you make it' (anon)
Did I mention that Jessica took her first steps on Monday night?! Very exciting in our little world. She's been practising little baby steps since then but crawling is still definitely the quickest way to get around!
I have discovered that the local upholsterer in North Berwick, Castle Cottage Upholstery sells bolt ends as remnants. So I was down there at top speed today and picked up a lovely piece of fabric which I have fashioned into a cover for my sewing machine. I have been coping with the very dilapidated cover that my machine came with years ago:
And made a new one during Jessica's nap this afternoon, et voila! Here it is, just needs finishing around the opening for the handle but I'm pretty pleased with it.
How can you get excited about a rotary cutter? But I AM!!!! I've only ever used scissors to cut fabric but I ordered a rotary cutter the other day and it arrived a couple of days ago so this was the first chance to use it. It's amazing, it cuts as if through warm butter and will revolutionise my cutting of fabric. But it is very sharp, to be done when Jessica is not around with her little exploring fingers......
Have a lovely weekend, we're off to the local Air Show at East Fortune's National Museum of Flight. The Red Arrows went over our house today as a practice flight. What a sight, and what a noise, it was quite something.
