February walk

confused scabious In Hambye this morning a confused scabious confronted snow, wondering what had happened to June.  

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.

    It is a phenomenon I call The Blind Malevolence of Inanimate Objects…. They ARE all out to get you, and swearing is perfectly permissible. I am having a miserable evening and came visiting your Marcia poem to raise a smile. Somehow I got distracted and went wandering in VivWorld. This post struck a chord…


  2. Funny…the rude words…yes, I’ve been known to spill an exasperated expletive…especially running out of ingredients in the middle of a recipe. Interesting image…the blurry feel causes even more that feeling of, “confused.” Blooms chilled by snow…burrr.
