Yes, it is my trusty stapler, perfect for a quick hemming job and saviour of the split seam. All of my hight school dresses were held together by this little beauty. Can't do it with my kids as they went and go to private schools and for some reason they frown upon the good old gleaming staple hem. So to the reason why I wish to enter, well I am in awe of anyone who can tame those nasty beasties called sewing machines. I have tried many times and failed miserably. Those evil things just love to watch me as they break the cotton half way through (if you look closely you can see them smirking) and the enormous tangled ball of cotton that comes from the bobbin area. My mother could sew, she made all my clothes when I was little but that gene was not passed onto me. She can knit too, but not me, I get holes where there shouldn't be holes and it goes in and out on the way down. So yes, I am in awe of those special people who can knit and sew.
I have done a little pencil sketch to show my appreciation of the people who make the clothes that I wear. I apologise for the quality but it has been quite some time since I have found my pencils to practise my sketching. Now my room is tidy, I can start drawing again.
During the week I also made some more brooches, they are just right for spring.
I won't get any art done today as I have to go and find a birthday present for no. 1 daughter who is turning 20 at the end of this month, can't say what I'm getting in case she looks at this.
No fun on the weekend either, since it is spring, I have to get outside and pressure wash all the patios, oh what fun.
