My Pattern Hoard
Then I came home and the light bulb in the sewing room exploded - bits went everywhere. Not sure if the remaining bit will come out of the fitting or whether the fitting will have to be replaced (again). This kicked all the fuses out, and everything had to be reset.
I consoled myself by completing a job I have been working on - putting my patterns in order. Then I counted them. Always something satisfying about a tidy up ritual.
I have 230 patterns - plus, 4 Sense and Sensibility Patterns. One book of pjyama patterns and one book of Lingerie patterns (not sure why, haven't yet made any). One book of scarves and shawls. One book of handbags and carry alls. 5 Burda magazines (growing).
I feel better now - nothing like restoring a bit of order somewhere to restore one's equilibrium :)
