Well here we are at the end of week 2 already, I am quite happy to report that the Funk has now gone and last week I actually lost 1lb... it might not seem like much but it's still a step in the right direction and is better than not losing anything or even putting weight back on! Thank you for all your support so far. This week will be better.
Now for some crafting news, yesterday I took a big step and actually used my sewing machine to start sewing my bunting. It was all going swimmingly when I ran out of thread on my spool - this is a big thing when you've never rethreaded one before, I managed this okay or so I thought. When I started stitching again the top thread was alright but the bottom thread had gone all loopy. I can here all you sewers out there going ahhh and knowing what the problem was straight away. I didn't, so I trawled the internet which said 'tension' - so I fiddled with this for about an hour all to no avail. Then I had a thought of inspiration.. my saviour across the pond would know what the problem was . After a few e-mails back and forth and my rethreading with a different thread and making sure it was in anti clockwise hurrah all solved.
At this point Baby G woke from his nap so I was unable to do anymore sewing.. instead I nipped out for a seam ripper!
For the rest of the afternoon I was itching to get back to my machine . Finally it was bed time for the boys and tonight it was my turn to put them to bed. But then I had a huge dilemma, I like football and have been watching Euro 2008 but I needed to sew... how could I watch the Portugal match and do my bunting?
After reading Milo his story and tucking him in I came downstairs to this.....
Hub had moved the kitchen table into the back room for me and set up the machine so I could sew and watch telly. Isn't he just the best? I hasten to add that this is the room where the boys normally play!!
I got all the bunting triangles sewn and now tonight I will just have to put the binding on. Fingers crossed all goes well :-)
