I have watched The Great British Sewing Bee tonight for the first time. Okay so it was the second part, the first clashed with other things I was recording. However I am quitely inspired - again - to get out my sewing machine and sew. I know I have been part way down this road before and got all fired up. Dressmaking is something I know how to do. A big fly in the ointment is that I have not properly done dressmaking for more moons than I can remember, so I am very rusty. I have a philosophy that it will be like riding a bike - you never really forget once you're there. There are other flies in the ointment along side, lack of space and time - fabric is a major one. Even if I could source good fabric locally, at the moment, it is not a thing that is within my tighter than A Gnats Cod budget. I have been told of a pretty smart fabric shop in Ulverston. I'd like to go and look.
I joked with HK that he better watch the bed linen - the cotton sheets and duvet covers may be re-cycled. He was not at all impressed. Must go now, Mary-Jane has woken up and is crying x
