What have you been putting off doing? Why?
I bought some fabric to stitch a blouse and a petticoat to match my sari. I bought it in November or December, one of these months. When I got the fabric I thought I’d stitch it right away, but circumstances are beyond my control, therefore I still have it folded in my closet.
My daughter was supposed to clear out one of the rooms upstairs, I wanted to convert it into a sewing room, it has not happened yet. I don’t want to use the kitchen.
I’m still waiting for my daughter to clear the room, I think I’d have to remind her again that I need it. She can easily get a medal for procrastinating, no one can compete with her.
Today she ran ten kilometers I couldn’t ask her to make the room available for me, she told me she was very tired.
If I did something like this when I was younger my mother would have told me once if it was not done, she’d clear it herself. Why don’t I follow my mother’s example, well things have changed, I’m not at liberty to do so.
Maybe I’d write another post when the room is vacant for me to put my sewing stuff there and start sewing, I’m hoping to get my stitching done before 2015.
One day I tried to open a can of beef. There was a key to open the can,I put the key through the thin strip of metal,as I was trying to roll it to the end of the container, the strip broke off. In a panic I tried to open the rest of it with my left thumb,instead of opening I cut my thumb.I am not sure what happened,it started bleeding I put a band aid it didn’t work ,it continued to bleed.
My husband was at work ,I thought if I told him.He’d be angry.I stayed quiet.It did not help,the bleeding wouldn’t stop.Not knowing what to do,I told my husband,he looked at it and said the wound is deep .I’d have to get it stitched.Because it was metal,I was required to get a tetanus shot as well. I was afraid of getting stitches,it had to be done,my husband’s colleague stitched it. He asked my husband,why he didn’t do it,actually I was too scared to get it done by my husband. I made the mistake second time , I let my husband stitch it. To this day the thumb my husband took care of left no scar,but there is a prominent scar on my left one. I should have known better,my husband was an eye surgeon, they do eye surgery,which is far more delicate than the thumb!
