Sewing mania over and Sophie’s dress is (nearly) ready for the suitcase. Just the sleeves to sew down when I get home tonight. The Cambie pattern is being put in the drawer for a little while now… time to move onto other projects that I’m VERY excited about.
I have about 8 to choose from and the big decider in what to tackle is the colour thread that’s in my overlocker… Does that make me sound really lazy? Is anyone else like that? The thought of changing it really makes me fearful. There have been tears and tantrums over this innocent looking machine.
Anyone else intimidated by their overlocker?
So what needs white overlocking? This has been sitting half sewn in my stash since last summer. I’ve unpicked it and I’m starting again. The problem is I’m doing a lot of looking at it and not a lot of sewing. I’m putting off ruining the fabric which is silly – it wasn’t expensive, it’s sat there unused, and I want it sewn for my summer holiday. I don’t have a pattern, but I have a sewing machine and the elastic. And a threaded overlocker… JUST DO IT! By next blog post I WILL have made progress. And if I don’t mention it for a while, give me a nudge will you?
