So, my sewing machine is off getting fixed...and apparently it will take 3 weeks :(
I am missing it already - especially seeing as I have so many WIP's all half finished for the belly monster and its not long until he arrives! So, I have been trying to find ways to work around missing it, and thought I would share:
1. I plan to concur my fear of my overlocker (serger for those of you in the US), I will start by tackling this tutorial (and pattern) :)
2. I plan to catch up - oops - on my blocks for the hexie block swap that I'm currently involved in.
3. I have a heap of hand sewing to do to finish off some gorgeous little pants I made using this tutorial (and pattern) and a baby blanket I am making for a friends baby who is due to arrive soon after my little belly monster!
If I finish all of these things and run out of projects to work on, then I will cut out my next few projects, so that all the bits are prepared and ready and waiting for my machines return :)
Of course...a broken sewing machine means I haven't finished my project for this months Sew Many Books :(
My April Project worked out fantastically and you can read more about it here, if you like :)
My project for May is very pretty...but I still haven't decided what it is meant to "BE" yet - a cushion or a framed picture on for the wall?? Its so hard to decide :P
This is as far as I have gotten on June's project (which will now become July's project):
So, still quite a bit of work to do once my sewing machine returns...
If you want to know more about what my plans were for this month, have a look over this post :)
If you were planing on joining in this month, please contact me as I'd love to share your project and blog instead of missing this month completely!
Thank you :)
