Ode to a Sewing Machine



Oh sewing machine.
I love you. You were given to me in 2006, from a very kind lady who answered my Freecycle plea. The wife and I drove 30 miles to collect you from a tiny little beach village called Llangrannog one March afternoon. I used you quite a bit in those days, then I moved back to Chester and you were put away in a cupboard and forgotten about mostly.
I came to Bristol and after getting a little workbench set up, I used you quite a bit.
But I have been rubbish towards you lately. I’ve barely switched you on over the past few months. I’ve not been going to Stitch and Bitch (mostly because I’m afraid of the neighbourhood I walk through to get there, and I don’t drive)
But then I remembered that I like making things. And that I could do with a new skirt for work. Also that I’ve been getting annoyed with all my crap rolling around loosely in my bag (I’m a fussy neat freak in certain aspects of my life, and my handbag is one of them!) and have been meaning to make some pouches to pop things in.
Sewing machine, I promise I will use you some more. But I have no idea what to make!

Why Would You Look?

A map showing where all my visitors have come from. Pretty.

I know these posts may seem like a bit of a cop out, because its not really a proper blog entry, but I’ve not done this before on this blog, and some of these terms are quite strange.

Yes, its time to look at my site statistics. Hooray! I’m looking from 1st May onwards, because it was around then I started blogging more regularly on the site.

54 people have gotten to from search engines. Some of the things they search for is pretty
innocuous, and is quite obvious someone was looking for me. Some of the other search terms though… what the hell were you looking for (and how did it come to my site?)

The full list is below this short break. I’ve split the list into 6 groups, Me, Music Downloads, Self Promotion, Fashion, Local, and Other Stuff. Oh, and my “hilarious” (nah) comments are next to them in italic. Enjoy.
