I am still in my sick bed or rather I have progressed to the chair beside the bed. Charlie is still my constant companion and can now go up and down the stairs on her own. It is so good to see her improving.
This last virus is continuing to give me grief and my husband is doing the vacuming. The noise of that machine just goes straight through my head. So Charlie and I have retreated to my sewing room so that I can shut the door. I am now on super strong antibiotics, ear drops and pain killers, all of which leave me tired. But at least the pain is under control and I have begun to think about sewing again. I can't remember what I was doing last time so I have decided on a new project.
I decided on a clip purse. Why? Well that is a bit of a wander of the mind. The government here is bringing in a tax on all purchases from overseas and making the persons selling the goods collect the tax for them. Which just blows the mind. I don't mind paying my taxes but I hate being ripped off. I can buy rat tail cord on line for 5cents a metre but have to pay $1.00 a metre in the shops here. They would buy in bulk and get that cord even cheaper than me. The same can be said of my purse frames that sell for about $10 to $15 each in the shops or $2 or less on line. So I looked in my bag of purse frames and found I was down to 3 only. One I really liked so decided to make a clip purse and I also put an order in on line for some more frames.
He was still vacuming so I did a little vector drawing for an applique. Just a silly little bird but it is about all I can handle at the moment. I have found the fabrics, drafted a pattern and got everything ready.
I have no idea what I am going to do with it when I am finished. It will probably go into the Xmas gift draw.
