Thats how time travels.Whoosh and another month has gone by.Do your feet touch the ground? Do we notice how fast the year is going already and yet we've only just begun it?
I feel like I am chasing my tail some days just to keep up.Still.I managed to spend a whole lot of money at completely rebuilding the insides of my machine- although when using it I can still smell the carnage from that afternoon.
Thank you all so so much for your suggestions!!
Do you know not one of you suggested a Husqvarna which is the old beast I use? I thought that was very funny.In the end it was just cheaper to get this old dame redone than buy a new basic machine and, because really we all lust after the fancy pants machines that do everything just shy of make cups of tea and feed the cat,it made sense for now to do just that.Which meant one month without a sewing machine.
You don't miss something until you can't have it do you.All my wool love that was oozing from the couch suddenly became an aching desire to push my foot down on that pedal.
Sigh.Actually it was more of a grrrrrr.
So I began a little tv folly.
Until I got back the old dame.I began a quilt for our bed.This has been a half hearted desire for some time but I put so much pressure on the fabric choices and the design (wanting to try something more challenging and dare I say "mature") that of course all I did was over think myself into a corner and not start at all.Do you do that?
Then I made a decision.To just start.
So I have.And I LOVE working on this quilt.I have now run out of two of the fabrics as I used much loved older prints (why do that to yourself?).So day is fabric hunt day.
And tomorrow is of course a long tv marathon.Will you join me on the couch for the wedding? If you are lucky enough to be having a street party do tell! I would love to hear the details.
Until then lovely ladies.xx
