My sewing mojo seems to have upped and gone lately which is not a good state of affairs when I have a craft fair in a week and no stock for it.
But it's not my fault.
No, not at all.
It's Lesley's fault for explaining "rippling" to me and getting me hooked on this particular form of crochet.
And then Patti's fault for lending me this book
with this gorgeous blanket pattern in it.
What was I supposed to do? Resist temptation? No, not me!
So in all that time when I should have been sewing I have been rippling instead
which is all very pretty and lovely but isn't going to pay any bills.
But then again if I keep going it might just keep us warm in the winter.
Then again, I reckon young Michaela should take part of the blame for the lack of sewing going on in the Locket household.
It was her after all who got me onto the jam making which meant I had to follow her example and make fresh scones (my new addiction) to go with them.
But then I would have to lay some of the blame at April's door for sharing this recipe with us
I may now have some yummy biscuits to welcome the little Lockets home but what about those orders???
At least my conscience is clear - it wasn't my fault I was led astray by these bad women!
