Rocking Dog’s Scented Sewing Session

Packed Up & Ready To Go

After two very muddy and blowy dog walks Rocking Dog escaped the elements and took refuge in the sewing room! I finished some stashes of masculine spiced lavender sachets and then got down to the business of sewing some Christmas stockings utilising fabrics found on Material Mountain.

The smell of the Yorkshire lavender was very heady and soporific, however The Archers Omnibus made my blood pressure rise considerably! When is the dreadful manipulative Rob going to be stopped in his tracks?! Grrrrrrrrr!!! I have a feeling it could be a very long and distressing storyline. Andyman makes fun of my love of the radio soap and has a habit of creating all the farm noises…very badly. My dear brother once had to dig out a basement in a New York brownstone to create a sound studio ( I rather think complete with pit filled with gravel to simulate someone walking on a rough pavement). Poor chap needed a back operation soon after this gigantium challenge.

Anyway enough of Rob, Ambridge and Linda Snell’s Calendar Girls my sewing session proved productive. Eight lined stockings await hanging loops and frouing. I think there’ll be some jingle bells to add to the Scandi’ inspired stockings and a felt carrot to adorn the one featuring white rabbits. Watch this space for the finished articles.

Driving back through Bristol earlier this week I was horrified to spot three houses already sporting Christmas decorations. Love Christmas decorations that I do, the thought of six or so weeks with them makes me feel quite nauseous! If I was being a real Victor Meldrew what does all this extra electricity cost to Grinch a house for such an extended period, I presume considerably less than a Cannabis factory!
