But then just under a month ago two things happened:
- I discovered and fell in love with knitting.
- A little symbol came up on the screen of my sewing machine telling me that it needed to be serviced.
So I turned it off and walked away and knitted and didn't deal with the fact that I really had to book Nina Bernina in for a service.
The funny thing is that I didn't want to take her in for a service in the first place, because I couldn't bear to be without her for as long as it took. In actual fact it has been so much longer.
Today when I couldn't put it off any longer, I switched her on and the symbol was gone. I felt so grateful to her that she was letting me sew, that I promised to take her in for a service this week. And I will.
This skipping dress is made for a princess that lives in a patchworky castle. Check out what Andi made my Jazzy for her birthday as a swap. Isn't it the best!
This dress was made from bits of cord and vintage sheets from my stash, an op shopped zipper and bias binding and a crocheted by me motif and ric-rac. This time I stitched the Everything but the thread bit straight onto the binding.
Now I just hope it is pink enough for the princess.
I hope your Monday is a funday. XX
