In for a service

Quite frustratingly, I haven’t got much to show at the moment. I had big plans for this week and next. The boy is on holiday and I was planning to make good use of my spare time by spending some quality time with my sewing machine.

 Sadly, while I was quilting my hexagon quilt last week my machine started running strangely and it became hard to turn the wheel. I decided that it probably wasn’t a good idea to keep going while it wasn’t behaving so started looking in to taking it in for a service. I took it in on Saturday, and am hopefully going to pick it up tomorrow after work. Apparently something within the bobbin mechanism had worn out and needed replacing. I’m hoping that it will be as good as new when I get it home though.

 I have got some sewing done, however, as we had a “crafternoon” on the weekend, and I had a sewing date last night, but unfortunately I’m not quite in the position to share pics of things yet. I have finished my Vogue 2902 dress but need to wait until mid next week until I have the matching belt to show you photos.

 I’ve made some very good progress on my Beignet, which I’ve been sewing along with Claire, and should hopefully finish that soon too (although I do still need buttons). So bear with me during this unscheduled break, I will hopefully have some finished things to share with you soon!

    Looking forward to seeing your Beignet. The pattern is on the sewing table deciding which fabric and finishing off some other projects first.
