Most people look forward to holidays. But, sadly, Stitch ‘n’ Time holidays are dreaded. What on earth do we do for seven weeks without our ‘rock’ to cling to.
Week 1 of the holidays: We couldn’t resist,. Tuesday came and there we were back.at the ‘classroom’. Of course, there was a good excuse . . . it was ‘TIDY UP TIME’. A small group of our ladies gathered to do our annual sorting out of the cupboard. We also took a bit of time to clean and maintain the sewing machines. How many ladies does it take to clean a cupboard and maintain sewing machines I hear you ask. The answer is six.
Luckily three hours of tidying , grumbling about the state of things and then laughing our way to: 2 sacks of rubbish and the tidiest cupboard EVER, left us feeling satisfied. We had all had our weekly fix and it left us feeling good.
Some would say “there’s a James Brown record in there somewhere”. But, it really HAS to be Nina Simone: Feeling Good
Tuesday’s are so important to us that we are all looking for alternative places to meet. I will try to keep a holiday diary to let you know what we are all getting up to.
Next week we hope to have a get together to watch the final of the Great British Sewing Bee. If you have been following the show you will know that last week saw, Tracy leaving (our favourite to win). Of the three finalists, I think it would be lovely to see Jade (the youngest-ever contestant on The Great British Sewing Bee) passing the post first and hopefully she will inspire a new generation of sewers.
Watch this space for Summer Updates. Whatever will we get up to next?
