Sewing machine rescued! Let's see, it was about 2 weeks ago since I dropped it off, and it wasn't working when you were visiting (and hadn't been working for a few weeks before that). I'm too lazy to look up the date so I can do the math, but suffice it to say that I haven't had a functional sewing machine in several months. In honor of my fixed sewing machine, I am going to focus on sewing links for today!
Pieces I have in my WIP basket that I will finish before I start anything new:
--Towel Rug from Handmade Home (Desperately need this as a backup in the bathroom, I cut the pieces back in February!)
--Final curtain from the Kei fabric I posted about back in March (yes, my living room has been missing a curtain for almost four months)
--Baby kimono I started before Silas was born (so about 15 or 16 months ago)
--One or two Joseph Blocks for Anna Maria Horner's Rainbow Around the Block project (already cut the pieces!)
And then I plan to move on to:
--something from the I Love Patchwork book (Lap Quilt)?
--at least 3 or 4 skirts from Maya*Made's recycled t-shirt pattern (sewing with knits? EEK!)
--Fall Pillow from Cluck Cluck Sew
--Mama's Bag from Handmade Home
I'd love to see what links appealed to all of you this week, feel free to leave them in the comments! Or, visit Stumbles and Stitches on Facebook and share the links there! Or share both places!
