I bought the last of the patterns I wanted to get printed, organised them into a flder ready to upload, and noticed that one was missing. I contacted the designer, using their web contact form, immediately.
This morning, I hadn't had a response, so I emailed them. They are a US company so should have had time to look at my query yesterday. If I don't get this sent off soon, I won't get the printed patterns back in time to sew a top for Small Person at the beginning of next week
It was distracting me from my planned task. I printed out the instructions for several of my existing patterns, including the two I was dithering between making. I recognised the instructions for one of them, I've obviously printed them before. So, I decided to bind the instructions into a booklet and, of course, I had to print the instructions for the other patterns i've already got so that they could go in as well.
I moved to clear the cutting table, still undecided about which pattern to make. One of the items to be cleared was a book about sewing jersey with a sewing machine (a birthday present for my sewing grand-daughter, who is coming at the end of next week to learn to make leggings. It reminded me that I had meant to order some ballpoint needles for her sewing machine, so I went and ordered those before I forgot again.
And then while I was in Ebay, I saw those aluminium flat pieces that I'd toyed with getting to help me mark and press long seams. I thought about the duvet cover upstairs and decided that today I'd order them. When I had several of varying widths in my basket, free postage, I realised that I'd get them cheaper if I went direct. So I did.
So I've been doing stuff which will enable me to be creative.
Does that count?
