1. I obviously am not busy enough already.
2. I am a complete klutz so what follows is pretty much inevitable.
Basically this was going to be a sewing related post, but then I dropped my lip balm over the bannisters and on to a very fragile and handmade (not by me) bowl. Meaning I didn’t have time to finish the dress I was working on today.
Obviously – as my luck would have it, the bowl shattered into approximately 14 gazillion pieces (or 14 maybe) and I of course burst into tears (not even much of an exaggeration). It wouldn’t be a big deal, but I’m always breaking things – and they’re always the one of a kind, handmade items that I love.
So I set about fixing it. I tried hot glue gun, but it dried too quickly so I moved on to E600. This worked well, but meant that I had to hold each piece in place for at least 3 minutes. And in doing that I also kept gluing my fingers to the bowl.
This got a bit frustrating, so, eventually, when I was left with this much hole and only these tiny pieces to fill it in with, I took the executive decision to patch it up with a fabric flower.
It looks a tad random, but now it’s back in the hall and hopefully no-one will be looking too closely, I think I can put up with it.
Perhaps I should up my house insurance just in case I try to use lip balm again in the near future!
