What I've Been Doing When I've Not Been Posting


Two pairs of slacks, plus another nearly done
Two jackets (two different patterns)
Two vests (two different patterns)
Five blouses (three different patterns)
Three T-shirts (two 3/4 sleeved, one short sleeved)
One purse
One zip-front fleece jacket
One quarter-zip fleece pullover
Various Christmas ornaments

Lots of big messes in the sewing room

And many, many, many, many alterations on the patterns so the garments would fit, along with editorial and style changes so the garments would be what I wanted instead of just like the picture on the pattern envelope.

It has been lots of fun!

Unfortunately, my sewing machine had to be rushed to the hospital for a consult with an orthopedic surgeon and a chiropractor.  The needle started to hit the walking foot.  Ouch!  I'm not sure whether the issue is with the walking foot or with the needle arm.  I hope that only an adjustment is needed instead of orthopedic surgery.

Meanwhile, the 1964 Singer is having a good time in the sewing room.
