Long time no see, ey? And want to know why?
Look at my sewing room:
Isn’t this a kimono robe waiting to be underlined? And a flowery top cruelly abandoned mid-construction? And a spring coat that only needs its belt done?
And doesn’t each box contain a ready cut project, patiently waiting it its sewing queue?
But wait, what’s this? The overlocker and cover stitch machine all ready and waiting? But where is the trusty Bernina, matron – no – general of the sewing room?
You might have guessed it: General Bernina has gone AWOL. She’s been having a break (a very unexpected and uncalled for break, I might add) at the repair shop for the last 10 days. Adding insult to injury my backup machine had been out of order for months, so now both machines are having a holiday while my queue keeps building and building.
The lady at the repair shop said it might be 10 to 14 days to get her fixed, so given that we are on day 11 today and I discovered some rust inside the machine when I tried to shake her 32-year old self back into life I’m starting to get a little worried.
So in the meantime there has been no sewing from me, only manic tracing and cutting – and I might have started 4 new knitting projects to compensate 😉
I actually have a backlog of finished items to blog, but I felt I was having “fat weeks” rather than “fat days” so had even less inclination to pose for pictures than normally. (May I add that back in the real world I weigh the exact same than at any point during the last years – I’m not really prone to weight fluctuations, so those fat weeks really are all in the mind.)
So anyways, I just thought I’d update you with this sad story from the sewing room. Burda have been making some stuff I like, so while I am in limbo I might write a little review of the April edition soon.
Keep your fingers crossed that my Bernina will be back where she belongs at the helm of the sewing room soon!
