A Camel and a Burst Bubble


You know when you're really feeling that 'sewing vibe' just flow through your creative self. You joyously continue stitching on & on & on with an almost air of stitchy smugness because you are now being so productive, you are over your small bout of 'crafters block' and the project is nearly done.

Just as the level of pride has risen to nauseating levels (I am nearly dizzy with the ever growing bubble of 'I just created stuff stuff' buzz) I show the Mr my 'finished' camel.

My bubble doth burst as the Mr turns and states "Oh he's beautiful but, you're not done yet Pip, I think you forgot something"...


So caught up in my stitchy groove, my creative crafty 'vibe' was I, and despite following a pattern, I forgot to give him his tail!

A foreign meek voice could be heard leaving my mouth "I can fix this without having to un-pick a squillion miles of camel"...

No longer smug, no longer 'in my creative groove, I no longer feel my 'vibe'


I am hopeful and humble again.

And I am not going to forget to sew the tail on his friend.

In the name of inclusiveness, I say the tail-less camel is a winner and will no doubt earn his place in the toy box alongside his (slightly more fortunate) friend.

(I know how long it takes to make a camel - don't you go near him with anything unpicky!)

I really don't think he'd care if his tail was "joined on" instead of in the seam ... it will make him unique as he's already pretty cute

I agree... there should be no unpicking.. that will lead to so much more pain! How about dreaming up some fantastic story about how he lost his tail.....

Nikki got in before me with the suggestion as to how he lost his tail. I'm sure you could come up with some fantastic story as to how he lost it.
