There was an urgent household job that needed attending to. I could ignore the collapsing back fence, The Child, who was home from school nursing a sore mouth due to new braces, was banished to her room and I swept my arm across the dining room table flinging paperwork to the floor clearing the way for the sewing machine.
We needed a new peg bag - and we needed it now.
Making this was so easy, I could get a one-woman production line going should there ever be a worldwide peg-bag shortage. Best of all, I got to use up some of the bird fabric I bought for a lampshade (but then changed my mind about) and a couple of old linen napkins for the lining.
The Child is a good soul. "Nice bird bag, mum. Good job," she said when I proudly thrust my creation through her doorway. She may have even half meant it.
