In my last post I said that a good old search through the stash always uncovers something that you had completely forgotten about. That was prophecy. I found something wonderful: A clothes-peg apron that my grandmother once embroidered for me. In some places it is worn and torn beyond repair, but I could never throw it out. There is not enough intact fabric left to do twelve BJP pieces with, so I will integrate a little into each piece. The embroidered part will be cut out and used for something else.
Have I finished my first piece? No. There are still 27 days to go in September, plus the rest of this day ... But I have done the machine sewing, and a LOT of thinking until late last night, because, having arrived at a certain point, I found that my original plans for part of the piece would never work. Thinking always works - I found a solution.
The thoughts you think during and because of the BJP that you might never think without it ... The selfmade little problems, and the selfmade great solutions ...
I am off to instal my brand-new scanner to do something with very old stuff (also BJP-related). Please cross your fingers/hold your thumbs that I can tackle the installing!
See you, Sabine
