The photo above represents triumph, and a lot of hard work over the past week. No longer is the dining room stacked high with rolls of fabric, nor the dining table covered in sewing machines. You can see the sideboard. I have a new and dedicated workroom!
To celebrate I indulged in new scissors, and new thread snips.
I am in love with these – they are reassuringly solid in the hand, balance beautifully, are fierce sharp and even look lovely (I think, but I do know I am besotted). A wonderful present for anyone who sews, seriously. I am quite a ‘thready’ sewer – as a true utilitarian I concentrate on strength and structure, but I enjoy using these so much I have upped my game. Feeling unbearable virtuous.
