I’m still in search of a new machine, but hope to bring a new one home before Thanksgiving. Right now I’m bouncing between a Janome MyStyle 100 and a Babylock Molly… Planning a trip to the store with fabric swatches in hand to practice… Meanwhile, class is over and I’m working some smaller projects.
I’m working on a shrug for a friend, handsewing the edges until I get the actual new machine. My old one would make hash of this project.
And! The terribly offensive zipper is gone from the plaid pirate coat! My Mom and I worked together to remove the zipper – bad, bad zipper – and it’s now replaced with nice little hooks!
And don’t it look great!
Yup, I will be the toast of the RT Scottish Fairy Court, as I pay homage to the royals by replacing my purple pirate coat with this one.
For the night.
Maybe once or twice during the conference.
Now, I have a scrap of the fabric and I’m off next week to search out the perfect fabric to make matching pantaloons for it!
