Why don’t you blog more Jodie? (or be careful what you wish for)

I spent most of the day farting about in the sewing room. I took a photo of my basket collection but didn’t think to get rid of the ugly doormat or half-dead geranium.

I used a dud knight as my pincushion because I couldn’t find my real (and enormous) pincushion. He isn’t even sewn closed.

I finished a monkey and thought about walking to the park to style him in a tree.

swear jar

I swore a lot at inanimate objects like the empty bobbin and the lost pincushion and the fabric that was a bee’s whisker too small.

  7. I love the placement of the star on monkey's britches! :o) Finn is handsome as ever. On Swear Days if you put money in the jar each time you swear you could buy a lot more fabric! :o)

  12. Your posts make me (and I'm sure lots of readers) smile. And FTR, I use a random cloth doll leg as a pincushion :). Someday, maybe I'll find the torso and the rest of her limbs.

  13. Love the swear jar. We're paying our children 50c for school banking every time we swear. They're making a mint!

  16. Ha ha! Great post. I love the swear jar. :) I had a difficult time at the sewing machine. It took three tries to sew a zipper pouch for my Mom for her birthday but the third time was the charm. I probably should have just had the day off from sewing but the birthday party is tomorrow.

  17. I particularly like your pin cushion. Mine is a stuffed bunny head that didn't make the cut for Easter (in the original plan it would have had a body)..which is kind of morbid now that I really think about it haha.

  18. Loved this post! Lol your swear jar is great! Somehow it reminded me of the Year One child who came up to the PGD teacher to complain about another child who was swearing. My friend asked the complainer what did the naughty word start with...'r' he answered. Hmm she couldn't think of what word started with are so she asked him to whisper it to her...*^sehole?..of course!
