Spicules of barbed air
bit through multi-layers of clothes
in cruel Northeast wind.
Why is it that the bobbin runs out when only a couple of inches are left of the seam you are sewing? Why is it that you run out of fabric needing a piece 10 cm long by 4 wide to finish a quilt? Needless to say the fabric had all been sold, and a suitable alternative took some searching out. In the shop’s scrap basket I found a long narrow strip which was usable only on the wrong side. It cost me one euro and a bit of unpicking.
