I have commented before on the fact that my husband has a number of guitars – as things stand he has 8 but he has put 3 up for sale so will soon be down to 5.
I cannot deny that I have occasionally drawn attention to the fact that surely no-one needs 8 guitars (Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen etc might be exceptions here).
However I am perhaps in a situation now where the moral high ground I have tried to hold on to, about not having excess ‘stuff” when you can only use one thing at time, is slipping away. I popped to Lidl today and somehow this made its way in to my trolley:
32 built-in stitches, 1-step buttonhole function, automatic needle threader, lots of accessories included. As you may know I do have two sewing machines already: Sally the lovely Vintage Singer:
And my mum’s old Viscount Deluxe:
But I had been wanting a machine that offered more stitches, buttonhole functions etc so I could not resist the new machine when I saw it in Lidl. So I now have three sewing machines – but, of course, I will now be sewing all the time! I just needed this new machine to unleash previously untapped creativity! And, of course, there is nothing daft about bringing a big new box in to the house when we still have boxes in the garage to unpack – no, not at all.
I will be doing some sewing soon…
