When was the last time you made an error of grey whale proportions? Here’s mine!
I read somewhere that steaming felt hats or slippers would create a ‘memory’ in the wool and so the form would hold better.
Accordingly I rigged up a rack precariously balanced on two ramekins to keep my slippers above the water in my roasting pan - eerily prophetic that was.
Then the phone rang…………….
While I was having a good old chin wag my poor whales had steamed on past toasted and arrived at burnt!
By the time I was done scraping the burnt bits off there were places so thin you could see through them.
Fortunately my car needed servicing the next day.
And the connection there would be????????????
Why hours of waiting in a rural service station with no nearby shopping of course!
Instead I came armed with fibre and felting needles – and I can tell you I got some very funny looks from the staff and clients of my dealership! But it’s the results that matter right?
I left with both car and slippers in perfect working order.
