My sewing machine is still at the repair shop 🙁
It has now been there for 4 weeks!
I am missing it dreadfully, especially seeing as I have had a package of happy mail with some gorgeous felt circles, that I have been waiting on to make the belly monster a garland for his room…
I am picturing something like this:
I also wanted to finish a few items as gifts before the belly monster’s imminent arrival…I’m not sure that many of my projects will get finished now, as I am feeling quite tired by the end of the day…BUT I know my sewing time is going to greatly reduce soon too, so I probably will try to push myself once my machine comes home – I just hope its soon!
And how have I been going with my goals? I discussed them here in this post.
I was planning on getting over my fear of my overlocker…and, although I am not afraid of it anymore…I have given up on it 😛 It just wasn’t working for me – I think it may need to be sent off for a fix too 🙁 I did spend a long time working with it and have 1/2 finished the pants I had planned for the belly monster – I will just have to finish them off with my sewing machine when it comes home 😀
My second goal was to catch up on my blocks for the hexie block swap…I have managed to finish one block, and I have cut out my next one…but I have just been too tired to start basting them and stitching them together – I am going to aim to try and get a start on this at nap time this week though!
The last goal was to finish some hand sewing on some 1/2 finished projects…which I have done! And here they are:
I finished these items just before the end of June…So I guess this is sort of my June wrap up?!
