This summer I have been busying myself making lots of soft furnishings. However, I don't actually own a sewing machine. So that I can continue making pretty things at uni, I went on a sewing machine hunt around charity shops. I bought two.
One was an old electric singer sewing machine. Not very exciting to look at but in good working order and for only £15! The best one however, was this bad boy hand sewing machine. So nice and the best bargain at £5. Whey!
Now all I need to do is work out how on earth you thread a bobbin on this machine. The bobbin case looks like a bullet and the bobbin reel is super thin and long as opposed to a normal round stubby one. Answers on a postcard please.
During the uni holidays I come home to work in a pub. It's a good laugh and I love everyone there. However, this week the boss and his girlfriend have been away and I have had more shifts than I care to remember (Roll on pay day!) So just to prove that I haven't been sitting at home on my arse all holiday, this is where I work.
Manager, Henry. He likes to think he's funny but he's really not.
Co-Barmaid Emily. Loveliest barmaid there despite always being late and always making a fool out of herself.
Exciting pub bits. Our ale tap handles are the best around.
Lurch, another piece of the furniture.
Work is fun in small doses, I'm glad I only work there during the holidays, it makes it so much more fun and there's always so much more new gossip.
