On our weekly trip to town yesterday, I planned to buy more organza to make food covers. There was a wide range in the shop and I spent a pleasant 10 minutes deciding which colours I wanted. Yellow might make the food look odd. Pale pink is pretty. Blue or turquoise? Then I needed someone to cut it for me. I stood around for a while. Then I went to the curtaining department, where three shop assistants stood in a huddle and asked them for help. One of them shrieked, 'Rachel' and when that had no effect, told me to go to the back of the material department and see if anyone was there. I did, and then I stomped out of the shop without any organza. If they can't be bothered, neither can I. Problem is, there isn't anywhere else in town I can get it. I'll have to wait for the next trip to Hartswater, I'm sure my favourite little wool/material shop there will have what I need. In the meantime I'll go back to sewing the edging to my tablecloth.
Here's a picture of a food cover I made several years ago, just for some eye candy.
