That, Dear Readers is the question! It's been many, many months since I sat at my sewing machine.....
She really does look lovely, resting there on my little blue formica table, but last time I used her, (and the time before that!) she kept chewing at my fabric.....and like many ladies of a certain age, she has a few tension issues!
And so I'm not sure what to do. If I'm honest, I've not particularly missed sewing on my machine. I do need to create, but perhaps I don't need to sew on a machine?
But then again.....I love them there Vintage Sheets, and I love making things with them there Vintage Sheets. So I'm in a mild quandary, not a great big life changing quandary, just a little one. Wondering what to do.
Yes, I love them there Vintage Sheets, with their pretty, pretty colours and their happy patterns. And I love to see them dotted around my home, making it colourful and cosy!
But I'm not too keen on machines, on things that can go wrong. In fact I'm not great with any technology, that's if you can call a sewing machine that's 50 years old technical!!!
I feel I've lost my confidence with sewing machines. Even the lovely vintage ones, that are covered with the most beautiful pink Vintage Wallpaper!
I have soooo many beautiful Vintage Sheets, just sat on the shelves, it seems so wrong not to be using them. Perhaps a bit of English paper piercing is in order? I do love those gorgeous quilts I keep seeing, long term projects for sure, but I can just about cope with a needle and thread!
Maybe I need a new machine, or go on a confidence boosting sewing course? At the moment the lack of pennies stops this, maybe next year.
Perhaps I'll just stick with the crochet for now.....
What about you, do you find machine sewing difficult? How have you got around this?
I'm sorry I've not visited anyone this week, it has been a really busy week. Mum was very poorly too, so it was an emotionally draining week. I'm glad to report however, she's much better now, in fact I've just been to see her with my sister, and she was great! Awake and alert. There is definitely little bits of mum still in there, it was lovely to have some connection again.
Hopefully I will get chance to visit you all over the next couple of days!
Bye for now,
Ada :) xxx
Oh.....and I'm starting to think about Christmas!
