Last weekend I was like a factory worker of old… sewed all day on Saturday, never even walked outside at all. Can you believe it?
Made this as a gift,
(don’t you love the fabric? “bow wow chow mein”!)
Made one for myself,
(hard to see, but it’s batik red dragon design on the other side… what? don’t you have your xray vision going?)
all because Kenny got a new foot
And tune up and new wires and I’m not sure what else…
And the repair guy never even commented on the bits of tape I have all over it. I put them there for my SIL, who borrowed it a few years back, but she couldn’t figure out how to thread it.
Gotta say, I like the old mechanical machines! The Kenmore isn’t fancy like the Singer Featherweight, but it will go through twenty some layers of fabric AND the silk cording! It could stand a new case… if you see one, let me know!
snow and ice
Ice dipping, from the crafting with carpal tunnel forum on Ravelry. The snow in the ice bath works great! PT appt next week to get better handle on what’s going on…
Yes, some, none exciting though. Front and back are done and shoulders sewn on DH’s sweater. Started down on the sleeve (with short row shaping for cap-I was happy it worked!). It’s oatmealy/gray… Next project will have to be a small one with loads of color!
