“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
For the past week iHave been looking and *looking* for a little *pink* iCover for my new iPod nana, I mean *nano*, to keep it in the unscratched silvery condition in which iBought it. On the way home from the fourth unsuccessful attempt iHad a flash of inspiration: iCould make my own!! All sorts of designs of *secret pockets* (one side for the iMusic, the other for the iConnections) swirled through my mind as I negotiated The Garage in search of scraps of *pink* fabric and a zip. All the zips were in hiding (iShould’ve known to stop at this point) but my Hunting And Gathering Instinct was too strong and so I resorted to unpicking the zip off an old cushion cover… and unearthed the sewing machine, rethreaded it without saying any bad words and set to work, measuring and measuring and snipping (measure twice, cut once). Ten minutes later, the machine started whirring, as in true Whiplash Tradition iSet out to sew up my iCandy. Here’s the iPocket, for the inside of the iCover.
So far, so good. iMeasured OH! *so* carefully, fitting the iPod within the layers and linings and pinky pockets, and iWas even careful to leave a wee gap at the top of the zip opening for the iCord. An hour later, after much fiddling and no pinning and no zipper foot and much more measuring, iFinally finished the last delicate seam… and turned it all right side out…. and that’s when iDiscovered…
two *whole* CENTIMETRES of seam width had miraculously disappeared… the inside pocket fits, but THE OUTSIDE IS TOO SMALL!!!
However did that happen? My iLash is masquerading as an iSore!!!!!So it's back to the drawing board then. Or maybe the iStore...
