Zips, zips, zips, zips, as far as the eye can see. And (now) all with backs attached. Yeah! Time to move onto something else but I might return and make more of these if I have time before Made in the Shade. I've been making zip brooch backs since around 8am today, stopping only to play my cello for the first time in about 3 years. That did not help the burgeoning blisters (zip induced) but it was fun and, to my surprise, the cats liked it.
I am still unemployed, unfortunately, but am trying to stay positive and get into a routine with things, hence the 8am sewing start today. Apparently I nearly got my dream job (it was "VERY close" and there was only a "whisker" between me and the person who did get it) which, overall, doesn't make me feel too much better about it :( They did also say they would be in touch if any other positions opened up with them but I think that is pretty unlikely to happen. I just hope I see something else advertised that I really want to do. In the meantime, I plan to buy a lottery ticket :) And I did get to go for a lovely dinner with my friend, Julia, while I was in Edinburgh for the interview so it wasn't a total waste of time.
Right, off to find the next pre-market project. Maybe a trip to my lovely local craft store for some double sided sticky tape?
