I just can’t help myself – I just love having wee competitions on my Facebook page. Even in a relatively sane competition there are always heaps of giggles from the posts, and today’s was no exception.
The competition was very simple – guess how many pairs of mooandflo’s little pods reversible shoes I would complete in one day by 10pm.
One wag guessed zero, and when I said she could guess again she responded that she “was hoping you would be sewing up a new beautiful dress for my little girl to wear.” Next week, Cherie, next week.
Some people had great faith in my sewing prowess, thinking maybe I’d take on No’1 Shoe Warehouse! Jill and Helen thought I’d make 18 pairs, Dee posited 17 pairs, and just as I was flagging and about to crack, I was massively buoyed by Niki’s guess of 23.
Amber opened the field to total lunacy when she guessed 7.5 pairs, leading Lorraine to speculate I’d make 9.6 pairs of shoes. 0.5 of a pair I can cope with – half a pair – one shoe, right? But I’m still trying to work out what 0.6 of a pair would look like… (Answers on a postcard, please).
So now I can tell you are fair gagging to know how many I actually did make. Don’t deny it, it’s written all over you.
Well here goes…
I made the grand total of 14 pairs of shoes!
I had no lunch and worked like a maniac, but it was worth it, because here they all are:
Not a bad effort for an old lass with a sewing machine, eh?
Suzanne and Shanley shared first place and can now go and have a mini mooandflo splurge on me by way of reward for their magnificent guesswork. Woot.
Now, time for a cocoa and two bickies then bed – all this sewing has worn me out!
