News Flash


I have no hair left.

I have torn it ALL out.

I am suffering from Post Traumatic Swap Disorder.

If I ever sign up to another swap.  Shoot me.

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Oh don't - I am about to sew up my pouch for the mouthy stitches swap and its making me breathless and nervous just thinking about it! The fact that the 3 practice pouches went fine makes it worse, I am bound to stuff it up on this one now!

deep breath, put the kettle on and have a cup of tea. x

Strawberry Patch said...

yep, I did! I sewed the zip in upside down!

Cindy said...

Emily! You're a riot.
Lovely A, walk away from the sewing machine. Just walk away....

Mouthy Stitches Swap... I haven't actually started mine yet! YIKES!! I came in guns blazing with a design on about Day 2 and have been doing other stuff ever since. I blame Curves Camp and my 3 children and the fact that I'm second guessing my design.

No I won't shoot you - you are too gorgeous.
though I get what you mean.

I had to close my eyes - I saw a 'quick-un-pick' those revolting devilish things.
You know there are a few long sighs when they are being used.

Have a wonderful day,

Ohhh, this could have happened to me as well, I’m always so nervous about making swap gifts. Silly aren’t we, he? Good luck Annabella!!

Laura @ Needles, Pins and Baking Tins said...

You are amazing. Don't pet the sweaty things x

Katy Cameron said...

Oh dear, which evil swap item is out to get you?

Dianne Neale said...

Whayt would we do without a stitch ripper?! Mine was steaming making my swap pouch!

Leanne said...

I have that exact same ripper and we are close friends. I feel your pain, I am pretty sure I sewed together about 10 zippy pouches. It never is that hard when the stuff is for me. Hang in there and it will work out.

Anita said...

Oh no...I'm wondering what happened? Is it something you received or something your sending that's making you bald? =)

Archie the wonder dog said...

Oh no...anything I can do to help? Apart from putting you out of your misery, that is!

Pat said...

Too funny! Sit back, relax, have a glass of wine. You will feel better in no time! :)

diane said...

Take a deep breathe and then tell me what's wrong. I'll talk you out of all your frustrations.

Lisa C said...

I feel your pain but I enjoyed the laugh. I hope today is better!

Quilter in the Gap said...

Catherine said...

Flying Blind... said...

Oh you love it really!!

pasqueflower said...

She has a seam ripper. She's armed and dangerous!

Sorry to hear about your frustrating swap experience!

daisy and jack said...

yikes - put that seam ripper down - nice and slow now .... then put your project in a draw and go and have a nice lunch, or a cup of tea, or visit your favourite website :)

susan said...

It's like child birth. You and swaps will do it all over again as soon as you have forgotten the angst.
