Be prepared, this is a post about Miss G. and how she continues to surprise, amaze and delight me. This young lady of 17 years has a unique personality, quirky, thoughtful, inventive, and many other things to numerous to mention in this post. However I did want to share what she was doing yesterday. I couldn't believe my eyes and just had to shake my head and laugh.
Miss G. is enamoured with all things Dr. Who. Perhaps I should say she is rather obsessed about the series. She saw this picture of a tissue box holder in the shape of a Tardis and decided she would make something similar and has chosen a pencil case.
Here she is sewing away on my trusty old Bernina sewing machine.
Just a tad frustrated here with the workings of my old machine.
This is the photo that will explain the title of this post. Not only is Miss G. sewing a Tardis pencil case, she is watching the Dr. Who Christmas special, (headphones on) on my laptop while she is sewing. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!! :)
Dont' you just love it? Young people amaze, inspire and delight me.
Perhaps Miss G. takes after her mum somewhat in the determination department. As some of you may know, I chopped my left thumb the day before Christmas. It has been somewhat of an encumbrance but what has frustrated me the most has been my inability to crochet. I couldn't grip the wool between my left fingers and thumb because of the pressure needed and the wool would slip on the bandage. Problem solved. Use a quilters rubber thumb cover. Not only does the wool not slip, but next to no pressure is needed to hold the wool. And I even managed to make a small granny square plus a dodgy square of treble. Bandage is off tomorrow but I might continue to use the rubber thumb cover while my thumb is still tender.
Have a great day everyone,
