This morning I woke up full of resolve to make one bag. Any kind of bag just to get out of this funk I'm in. Well, it didn't happen. You see, I was held hostage by a wasp.
Even before I had my breakfast, this giant wasp flew into my home. It was obviously lost and for some reason very attracted to my dining table light. The stupid insect kept getting its wings zapped by the light bulb yet it kept going back for more. ZZZZ zzz ZZZZ. This went on and on. Yet it survived. It wasn't even stunned.
Meanwhile I was panicking. I am petrified of insects. All insects. Wasps and bees are top of the list. I armed myself with the biggest umbrella in my home and grabbed today's newspapers. The umbrella was to shield myself from the wasp and the newspaper was to kill it. Of course I was fooling myself. There was no way I was capable of killing a wasp. I am a quivering coward.
I opened the door to the balcony and shut all other doors. I stood near the main door with the umbrella open and waited for the darn insect to fly its way out of my home. I waited and I waited and yes, it started to feel really silly standing there in my home holding this giant umbrella open. But the wasp just wouldn't leave. It flew around my home, again and again and always went back to the light. Finally I started to feel that my life was in danger as sometimes it would fly past my head.
As much as I wanted to protect my life, I was in the middle of a Level 86 Candy Crush crusade and this was an extremely hard level to complete. Finally I was on a good roll and had a good feeling I would win the round. So I risked my life and went and sat in front of the computer. With one hand holding the umbrella over my head, I used the other hand to play Candy Crush. And yes, I eventually lost. This is how crazily addicted I am to Candy Crush.
Finally, I became too nervous to be in the same room as the wasp. I switched off all the lights and ran into the bedroom and shut the door behind me. Yes, me, the umbrella and today's newspaper. I lay on my bed and tried to sleep but of course I couldn't sleep. After about half and hour, I ventured out and it worked. The stupid wasp was finally gone.
And that's basically why I did not make my bag after all. I was too rattled.
But let me show you some felt flower hair pins I had made. Previously I had made some over the top felt flowers brooches but they did not sell as well as I imagined. In fact I think I have a couple still unsold. So this time I reined in my urge to embroider wildly and stuck to two or three colours. Also, I decided not to make brooches this time but used hair pins instead.
Would women wear these felt flowers on their hair? I'm hoping so. As for the two brooches which were unsold, I'm thinking I should convert them to hair pins instead.
