Needleless delays

What I forgot to mention yesterday was that I broke my last sewing machine needle around 1pm: leaving me not quite enough time for a mad dash to the nearest Lincraft (Hobbysew was closed, or at least not answering their phone when I called) to pick up more before my guests arrived. And by the time they'd helpfully done my dishes for me it was too late to get there before they closed.

Today I started work an hour before the shops opened and was working at a location where the local mall doesn't have a sewing craft shop (and my 30 minute lunch break didn't give me time to drive anywhere else).

Tomorrow is another start-work-before-the-shops-open-half-hour-lunch day. There is a very vague chance I could make it to Lincraft in that time but since it's my first day of the contract I don't want to tempt fate.

But Tuesday I have off. Top of my list is buy sewing machine needles*. Especially as I have to make a punk costume before my end of school party next week...

(*Including a spare packet!)

Thanks for the offer but there's no need: I'm being lent a copy of Handmade Nation to watch tonight which should keep me too entertained watching other people craft to notice I'm not doing any myself...
