I’m an environmenalist. I don’t own a car, bike everywhere. Sort my rubbish in numerous fractions and eat a good deal of organic foods. And I did a one point do some research into household windmills and mainly gave up because I only found places and sites selling those mini-models in garden-gnome-style.
So what has that got to do with crafts? Did I start making my own?
It’s the eigth windmill I made. They’re all for my patchwork sudoku, and that pattern has taught me one thing: They’re a bloody nuisance to sew. It obviously doesn’t help that it’s 4,5 X 4,5 cm. in size. A bigger windmill could well prove a lot easier to sew.
It’s going to be a good while before I put that to the test … the thought of having to sew another already tests me and my patience.
