Hope is 'Suspended' ...
Hope to gain the Annual WI Competition Trophy is slipping away (unlike my stocking) as the garter I made didn't gain any points at all in this month's challenge.
The speaker at this months meeting entitled her talk "A Lingerie Designer's Life" and it really was very interesting. When she said that a nightdress would be created from scratch in just under nine minutes I was shocked. If anybody asks me if I sew I now know to say, "No!" I must say that I did envy her the design trips to Paris, but I wouldn't like to be under the pressure to create such a volume of ideas and with such small margins for budget.
I won't give up though, I'll keep on trying - even if my chances to win are diminishing!
