Sewing vs knitting

Today I thought I’d have a go at making curtains for our camper. Nay, better than that I thought I’d get the girl involved. I had a couple of pillow cases and planned to make some nice kitch curtains.

While I was hatching this plan I had completely forgotten that my sewing machine is completely bleddy temperamental. So fast forward a bit, the needle is way over to the left, there’s no way of getting it back where I want it, the top thread keeps breaking, even though the tension is where it normally is add to that 3 needles broke and the girl lost my needle threader (‘look Mummy it’s got a head on it I’ll put it somewhere ……’)

So, my perfect little curtains turned in to that’ll do let’s just get them done and in the van curtains…..ho hum. The girl quickly escaped leaving me in my own to let out some truly colourful language. I bloomin hate sewing right now. I learnt on an industrial machine, maybe I expect too much of my domestic model. I like hand sewing much better. So now I’m going to soothe my soul with a bit of knitting …..
