I have had tension problems for ages, on my machine and me personally, the bloody machine was giving me tension because it wouldn't work ;0)
Anyway.... I went to sewing class this week and my teacher confirmed it wasn't just me, the machine is in need of attention. So I have left it at the Studio and the repair men is going to look at it. I can't get it back for at least 2 weeks.
In a nutshell, my lovely lovely dressmaking class teacher has leant me a sewing machine. It is a basic machine that she claims children have used.
My problem is: I am worried about using it because I don't want to break it. I couldn't face going back and saying it was broken. On the other hand if I don't use it I will do no sewing for 2 weeks.
I keep thinking of the time I looked after my neighbours fish and it died! What do you think?
Thanks Cathe - I keep thinking I should have made something better / more difficult but this was all I could manage right now. I might embroider names on once they are born (if they chose short names, hah!).
I loved your skirt photos this week btw, you and your dog look lovely!
I think the blankets are perfect and the fact you made it for the babies is even sweeter.
You know, Cooper loves to get in the pictures and is a cheerful little fellow, thanks!
ha,ha,ha,ha,ha.. I too am laughing out loud!!!
well---- I call them panties... and I just have to tell you this one...some older people call them
drawers.. Kenny[ hubby ] has told me of an older gentleman at his work.. He would say to the
fellows," Don't get your drawers in a wad".hahahha.. this meaning..Dont get all mad or upset
So... dont expect a picture of "panties " or 'drawers'.
Judy.. my grandparents say 'don't get your knickers in a knot!'
Casey we say that too, the knickers in a knot thing, I like Kenny's version very much though!
This thread has made me nearly wet my knickers laughing! tee hee!
Cathe...yes .. My mom also said," So---sew a button on your drawers." I had forgotten that one..hahaha
And I have DEFINITELY heard, "talking smart".. My mom said this quite a few times..in my life.. and I kinda think my 2 kids heard it a few times..ha
what does the sew buttons on your underwear thing mean?
is talking smart being cheeky?
this is soooo much fun!
