… for people to call me back about a new job
… for Mr MachenMachen to come home
… for the next step
… for the annual sale at my favourite wool shop
… for the kettle to boil
… for the 18th of May to be over everywhere in the world so I can announce the winner of the bloggity birthday give-away
I have run out of patience with the last. Sorry to the thousands of readers in French Polynesia and Alaska.
The winner is Siobhan. Yay! Many happy hours of pin-sticking, clothes-altering, and coaster-utilisation to you. And thanks to everyone who left a comment – what a wide variety of places you come from and what different things you do. Shine on, you crazy diamonds.

Yesterday was the blog’s first birthday. I recently realised, when I met some blog readers in real life, that unless you’re German/Scandinavian or you speak a northern european language, my blog name is unpronounceable. For the record, machen/machen is pronounced
I’m curious. How do you pronounce it? Tell me in the comments, and you’ll go into the draw to win the Grand Prize, which consists of the following:
:: a pincushion
:: some coasters (but not the cups, sorry)
:: a copy of Altered Clothing
Entries close Midnight Sunday the 18th of May. And for the record, I don’t care how you pronounce machen/machen, I’m just glad you read it. Thank you – I tremendously enjoy having an audience, especially one that comments.
