|My new baby|
And also sewing.
I am in no way not taking the day seriously when I say that this weekend, I am also remembering sewing machines past, as my current Singer is slowly and painfully grinding to a halt. I've ordered her replacement and it will hopefully be here within the week: my new baby, Brother CS6000i.
I hope to get the Singer serviced enough so that she can be an adequate backup machine, but right now her buttonhole function has completely failed and I've got 3 toddler dresses standing by with buttonholes that need doing. I put snaps on my last few dresses, as a design choice (and because I was refusing to admit that the Singer wasn't acting right). That has to stop.
Sewing today was working on a new series of "summer" bears. Photos soon. At least they don't need buttonholes.
