Sewing the scraps

current project, phase 2:

I don't know if many of you know this, but I am not a good sewer. I have been sewing for a long time, so one would think I am good at it, but I have little ability to control my craft and little idea of what the hell I am doing. Today I put together the puzzle pieces I cut from my scrap fabric, trying to make sense of the pattern I cut up the other night. This would have been easier and faster if I did not have to spend so much time with my seem ripper in hand, removing stitches or rethreading the bobbin that I didn't notice was empty till after so many hopeless stitches. oh well.

Time past and the morning flew by. While I worked I got the chance to sit and drink iced coffee and listen to Camera Obscura, Neko Case and of course, Jens. So it was all well spent and fun to be back at my little machine. And the approaching end result (needs a few more finishing touches) I must say, is exactly all I hoped for.
