I needed thread for something I am going to sell. I am going to make handbags. I might sell them someplace other than Etsy because I like my shop being just focused on pets. We will see how it goes.
I just ordered a bunch of new feet for the new sewing machine. I feel guilty about all that I order. We have packages coming every day. I keep telling myself that I will stop tomorrow. Something about sitting at home day to day leads me to ordering stuff. Somewhere there is probably an anonymous group for me to belong to.
I was just not waiting patiently for it to start up. I guess. It’s hard to say for sure. Anyway, it works now.
I was sewing a special stitch and all of a sudden it started just stitching straight, but to the left. I pushed the end seam button and the needle started going up and down forever. I turned the machine off. Now it won’t turn on. When I turn it on I get a very small flash of light and that’s it. I checked the power and other things plugged into the outlet are working fine. I want to sew! I am working on another special project.
I now have a sewing room! I’m still settling in. It makes more room in our bedroom. We threw out lots of my daughter’s stuff. She said that if she hadn’t needed it in ten years it could be thrown out. We found lots of interesting stuff. A 65 piece set of flatware unopened, and you know I was kind of thinking about buying some new stuff. My husband kept anything with writing, sense she does write poetry sometimes, and it can be anywhere. We still have all of her art work and models from architecture school. There is still…
I cut out new pieces and sewed it again. It’s always good to have extra material. I think it looks nice now!
I messed up the front of the special order pet carrier. I am going to have to cut out a new piece and do it again. My new sewing machines has lots of special stitches, some work better than others. The one I used was not so good. I tried it out first and it looked good. It’s OK I found another that works well. Trouble is with cleaning up Lauren’s room going on at the same time life is busy.
I have another special order for a pet carrier. This time I am going to make a regular sized one at the same time. My mother used to say you can make two in about the same times as one. We will see if that is true. My new rule is to never make just one.
I might get a sewing room! My daughter’s room was my sewing room before she was born. Then it became her room. She is 33 now and has been living in Colorado for 10 years. I think it’s time for me to take that room back over again. Trouble is when ever anybody had stuff with no place to go it went to her room. Now it’s a matter of going trough her stuff and our stuff and thinning it out. It’s hopeful though!
Oh no! I’m still getting orders! I asked if it had to be there by Christmas. No answer yet. My husband thinks I’m sure to get covid-19 by going into the post office when it’s so busy. This time I am trying out having the post office pick it up. We will see how that goes…
