One of the only advantages, if not the only advantage of my husband working away for my birthday is that we got to do my birthday shopping early this year.
So let me introduce you to my 2 new babies, courtesy of the lovely Mr Flutter…
Miss Bernina the over-locker in the box on the left (eeek – she’s a learning curve and a half!)
& Miss Pfaff the new-to-me sewing machine is pictured on the right. Miss Pfaff seems a little less daunting so far! She’s quite an old girl but a good quality one at that, and she sews wonderfully. She will make a great spare machine for my students who don’t have their own…
So excuse me if I’m a little preoccupied for a while – I have quite a bit of playing to do with my new toys…
And just between you and me, I’m kind of hoping that Miss Pfaff might clear up some of my recent shirring dramas & get that working nicely for me. In which case I will be making my girls some lovely dresses asap.
Either way, I expect a lot more kids clothes in my future.
Yay – can’t wait!!
Wish me luck with Miss Bernina though – we’ve already had our first swear words with her (trying to thread her). Any advice on good serging websites you know of would be greatly received! I need ideas for some cool projects to use her for mostly.
But if I get lost in my office for a few days I have some other projects I can at least show you in the meantime until I come up for air.
