Sad Day in Sewville...
I have been sewing a lot lately. My sewing bug bit and I have been taking full advantage. A couple of days ago I found a few minutes and plugged in my Pfaff. I keep it unplugged in case of storms and power outages even though I have it on a surge protector. That aside...I was sewing a simple circle of fabric and got the entire way around to realize no stitches had sewn. Oops!!! Where was my top thread? I couldn't find it.
I called Mr. C to rescue me and my Pfaff but several hours and no luck. We agreed it really is time for service. I thought it had been about three years. When I looked up the purchase receipt...October 2004. Nine and a half years! When did the time get away? At any rate I called the excellent shop and set up the take in appointment. March 1st is when we are going to deliver it down the hill. I will be without for a total of about a month. I cannot describe how sad I felt.
I do have my very old cheap Singer that I use to sew cardstock, paper, wax paper and other assorted ephemera. I decided to finish my fabric circles on it. I won't be doing any "good" sewing until I get my Pfaff back in working condition. I thanked my Singer for its service through decades of use.
These are the circles I sewed on the Singer. I am making spare ornaments (click for the tutorial link) for my gift cupboard. These looked like a stack of crepes sitting there waiting for Nutella. Oh I better go have some lunch...celery and peanut butter I think.
So this is a Sad Day in Sewville. I have plenty of other projects to keep me busy.
No rain still. The sun is shining even though it is chilly and breezy. Daffodils are blooming. Trees are blooming...white flowers and pink flowers. Mother Nature is very confused here in Northern California.
Hope you are safe, warm, dry, and making things you enjoy. Now I shall listen to my favorite song by Pharrell Williams...Happy, Clap Along. It automatically brightens my mood and makes me smile.
Creative Bliss and Joy...
